TODAY’S PATENT – FRONT BREAK AWAY BALLISTICS VEST
The Front break away ballistics vest was invented by Kurt J. Osborne on 9th September 2010, bearing patent number US20100223705A1.
The present invention relates to a front break away ballistics vest having a front section and a back section that are securable to one another. The front section has an upper front section and a lower front section. A first clip is located on the upper front section to release a first shoulder strap from the first clip and a second clip is located on the upper front section to release a second shoulder strap from the second clip. The first and second clips are secured to one another, preferably via a release strap. A third clip is located on the lower front section to release the first and second clips from the third clip. The third clip is also secured to the first and second clips, preferably via the release strap.
In the event the user of the ballistics vest is in an emergency situation requiring quick removal of the ballistics vest, for example, if the user is in water and the weight of the vest is too great, time is of the essence to the user of the vest in dire need to remove the vest. In addition, the user may not always have the luxury of being able to use both arms or both hands for the removal of the ballistics vest, a situation that commonly occurs when the user is injured or otherwise occupied with another task.
