An innovative lightweight body armor suspension system that fits comfortably between a plate carrier and the wearer’s back. A key benefit of the EPS is the fact it can be incorporated into an existing plate carrier and is a belt-free load lift system to enhance plate carrier comfort.

Ergo-Performance System

Back Support

The Ergo Performance System (EPS) is a body armor suspension system, which fits between a plate carrier and the wearer’s back.

This system was developed through collaboration between Elite Sports Bio-mechanics Specialists, Chiropractors, Naval Medical Doctors, Special Operators, and Law Enforcement Personnel.

It is a lightweight system that helps increase range of motion, ventilation, optimize performance, prevent injury, and improve comfort without changing your plate carrier.

"The EPS gives a very real improvement in breathing, especially during extended physical exertion, and reduces chafing on the usual vest pressure points. This is especially remarkable and has to be tried to be believed."

Dissipates heat by increasing airflow by an average of 50%

Decreases heat under back panel of carrier by 12-16 degrees

Increases Thoracic range of motion by 25-68%

Increase lung capacity by 17% thus decreasing fatigue

Decreases back muscle fatigue by 10-25%

Incorporates Into Any Existing Plate Carrier
