The Thermophysiological response of wearing body armor in the line of duty has been the subject of numerous studies. These studies, in short, show that body armor (particularly aramids) is highly insulative and that a vest made of these materials limits the human body's natural ability to self-regulate skin temperature on the chest and back. This can lead to heat rash, heat cramps, heat exhaustion, and in rare cases heat stroke.
At Premier Body Armor, we believe that we have found a solution. One that is affordable, requires no batteries or wires, adds zero noticeable weight or thickness, and can be retrofitted to any ballistic vest or plate.
Premier Body Armor is proud to be the sole distributor for Eclipsys™ in the armor industry. This adaptive cooling technology was developed by Alexium International Group Limited. Eclipsys™ offers unsurpassed cooling by continually funneling heat away from the human body. Adaptive response means the hotter a human body is, the greater the cooling effect.
