Protective Products' International PPI Hornet Vest Wins Accolade

March 25, 2009  | 


Protective Products International (PPI), a wholly owned subsidiary of Protective Products of America, Inc., a leading manufacturer and distributor of advanced ballistic protective products has announced that the Hornet Urban Assault Systems Tactical Vest has received an overall score of 4.32 from the National Tactical Officers Association’s (NTOA) Member Tested and Recommended Program.


The Hornet is the law enforcement version of PPI’s U.S.M.C. Modular Tactical Vest (MTV). The Hornet provides a full 360-degree load-bearing capability in a two-point emergency release system. Made of 1,000 denier construction with a cool mesh inner surface for greater air circulation, adjustable shoulders, and an emergency extraction drag strap, the Hornet is a modular system accommodating additional collar, throat, biceps, side gap, groin, and lower back armor protection. The Hornet also accepts side SAPI carriers and is MOLLE compatible. A front abdominal flap secures an external cummerbund and has an auxiliary pouch for documents or a holster. The Hornet is available with a wide selection of equipment pouches and is available with PPI’s Armorlite, TG, and ST ballistic systems.

“Initially when it arrived, I was excited and surprised to feel how lightweight and durable it was. The first time I put it on, I could not believe how much I was able to move in it,” an NTOA officer commented during the testing of the Hornet vest. “It provides great ballistic protection; however, it seems to be half the weight of my old tactical vest. This adds to its ability to allow movement and a large range of activities one can do while wearing the vest. Overall, I am very impressed with the vest and highly recommend it.”
