TYR TACTICAL FEMALE EPIC CARRIER

A SYSTEM DESIGNED SPECIFICALLY FOR THE FEMALE SHAPE

In 2012, TYR Tactical began developing an exclusive female body armour shape. TYR wanted to provide a system designed specifically for the female warfighter, rather than just putting a female in a smaller sized male vest.

The challenge TYR Tactical took on, was that existing male or unisex systems do not allow female users to properly perform basic tasks and still maintain comfort. The “design flaw” was the lack of ergonomically shaped ballistic protective elements and carriers that conform to the female anatomy. This coupled with TYR’s biomechanical R&D findings lead to the development of the Patented (AUS, USA, EU, CAN) TYR Female Shape.

The result of 8 years of Design Development, is the Female Enhanced PICO Carrier (EPIC) System, consisting of Carrier – Soft (Low Velocity threat) Armour and Hard (High Velocity threat) Armour Plate in an Integrated System.

Check out the USAF fielding the TYR Female EPIC in this 2020 video.

The Huron™ MICO is a Light and Heavy Machine Gunners Assault Pack is the newest innovation in weaponry and tactical gear. The MICO is outfitted with custom lightweight feed shoot, cover and weapons feed attachment. Holds 500 rounds, an additional 75 rounds in the feed shoot. The main body pack is equipped with adjustable waist belt and shoulder straps. The weapons sling attaches to the MICO frame to enable ease and mobility. We created this item using the TYR Tactical™ PV® material in key areas for incredible strength and abrasion resistance.

PROPER COVERAGE

Lateral darts on the outer carrier have an inset/cut above the breast tissue to accommodate shoulder rotation and allow for shouldering weapon, solving the issue of protecting vital organs and breast tissue.

PLATE LOCATION

The front of the female carrier incorporates a gusseted plate pocket, relieving tension and pressure normally placed on the body from the hard plate in typical plate pocket configurations. Improved motion range allows increased ergonomics and performance, and decreased hot spots on the body by utilizing our airflow chamber technology.

CARRIER SHAPE

Two lateral darts, on the tactical outer carrier, contour around the females natural shape while still providing a full range of motion, support and eliminates excess compression on the breast tissue.

LOAD CARRIAGE

In the past, load carriage has typically been static and designed in a vertical alignment, which does not self-adjust with the operator’s natural movements. Female shaped components such as the shoulders, yoke, collar and belt were created to enhance the overall female system.

ARMOURING THE WORLD’S LARGEST POLICE JURISDICTION

In 2020 Aquaterro took on measuring and rolling out a complex, made-to-measure, multi-threat, Safariland® body armour and load carriage system to Western Australia Police. Western Australia is the largest single police jurisdiction on Earth: at around 2.6 million square kilometres (1 million square miles), the challenge to measure every single one of the 6,500+ serving Western Australian Police Officers, took Aquaterro Senior Armour Fitter Ethne Moller, to the most remote and extraordinary parts of Australia. We are proud to show you a rare look behind the scenes of Australia’s leading Body Armour provider, and one of the most amazing women on the Aquaterro team….check it out
