About The HASP System
The HASP system has been designed in such a way that it mimics the anatomy of the human body, creating an ergonomic armor plate which reduces wear stress while improving performance. The HASP system can be integrated into existing DAPS compatible carrier systems, as well as a universal plate frame system developed in conjunction with S&S Precision. The universal HASP system allows users of existing tactical body armor to improve their gear without having to replace existing carrier systems or armor platforms.

These variations complete the product line up of Hoplite Armor offerings designed to replace the current Kevlar (soft armor) DAPS (Deltoid Auxiliary Protection System) in favor of a plate capable of defeating high velocity rifle rounds in order to prevent injury to the vital organs of the upper body as a result of lateral ballistic rifle impacts.

Sgt. Lonnie Young USMC, Bronze Star and Purple Heart recipient, and security detail for high profile personnel, had the following to say about the HASP system:

"The Hoplite HASP system is lightweight, comfortable and most of all it's perfectly suited for urban warfare and is highly effective against rifle rounds. On April 4th, 2004 my team and I were under heavy enemy fire as insurgents attacked the Spanish CPA at An Najaf. While defending the base I was shot in my left shoulder. The bullet tore across my back and stopped just short of my spine. Having the HASP system during the battle would have saved me from injury and would have allowed me to stay in the fight."

All HASP plate variations are On Sale Now through the end of July.
