Outlast Technologies, the leader in temperature regulating technology, announced that the newest generation of its Outlast Adaptive Comfort solution is now exclusively available in select NIJ .06-certified ballistic systems sold by Point Blank Body Armor and Protective Apparel Corporation of America (PACA), wholly-owned subsidiaries of Point Blank Solutions, Inc. The enhanced fabric technology with thermo-regulating properties gives officers true comfort benefits within their concealable carriers, enabling them to perform optimally even under the most extreme climate conditions.

Point Blank Solutions offers the only body armor in North America with certified benefits of Outlast technology. Specifically, the Company's premier concealable carriers, Vision from Point Blank Body Armor and Blue Steel from PACA, feature the Outlast Adaptive Comfort micro-dernier lining to help regulate an officer's body temperature, reduce moisture and buffer against temperature swings in all environments. Based on Outlast lab results, a simulated environmental chamber test showed a 70% reduction in sweating when wearing body armor containing Outlast technology.

“Our body armor systems are designed to provide officers with not only the highest level of ballistic protection, but also the greatest level of comfort so that wear rates increase and lives are saved,” stated Michael Foreman, SVP of domestic and international sales for Point Blank Solutions. “With the integration of the latest Outlast technology into our Vision and Blue Steel carriers, we will provide officers with a proven thermo-regulating technology that reduces moisture, prevents massive sweating and is highly adaptable to any climate whether in Alaska or Florida. Point Blank remains committed to teaming-up with innovators such as Outlast to develop versatile, lightweight and comfortable solutions that will protect the officers who protect us every day.”

The Vision body armor system is considered one of the lightest weight ballistic systems available to the market today. The carrier was specifically engineered to deliver exceptional bullet-stopping power and designed to suit personal needs for thinness and flexibility. Similarly, the Blue Steel carrier is a highperformance body armor system and has the same advanced ballistic capabilities as Vision, coupled with a tri-level temperature and moisture control package to keep officers extraordinarily cool and dry.

Officers across the nation from agencies such as the Buffalo Police Department, Texas Department of Public Safety, San Antonio Police Department, Baton Rouge Police Department, Idaho State Police, Utah Highway Patrol, Indianapolis Metro Police Department and more, are wearing the Vision and Blue Steel body armor systems because of their comfort and performance attributes, and life saving features.

“Point Blank has been a valued partner of Outlast over the past five years,” said Heather Manuel, Outlast North America sales and marketing director. “Outlast continues to evolve and we are excited to be able to add more Outlast technology into Point Blank and PACA products for increased temperatureregulating and moisture-reducing benefits. Point Blank Solutions, now more than ever, delivers the most comfortable and protective carriers on the market today.”
