The agreement grants The Safariland Group exclusive CTAV OEM integration, CTAV Retrofit Kit and CTAV Shirt Carrier System (SCS) distribution rights for the United States law enforcement market, both state and local.
The CTAV combines the power of Advanced Impact Resistance (AIR) technology and the science of EverDry to significantly enhance the comfort of wearing concealable vests, outer vest carriers and tactical body armor, while also providing an additional layer of protection from ballistic and non-ballistic blunt trauma.
“The CTAV is a proven technology that will have a huge impact in the body armor market. CORTAC has solved the age-old problem of excessive body heat being trapped between armor and the body. Officers are often in adverse conditions such as extreme heat so the CTAV really is a game changer when it comes to comfort. We are very excited to partner with CORTAC to offer this technology to our customers,” said Todd Mackler, Vice President Armor.
“We are excited that The Safariland Group will be co-branding and providing sales and distribution for the United States law enforcement sector,” said Mike Letterman, CEO of CORTAC. “Their distribution system, combined with our CTAV product line, significantly strengthens our mutual ability to put the CTAV into the hands of law enforcement and corrections personnel, where it is greatly needed.”
Letterman also added, “This paves the way for The Safariland Group and CORTAC to work closely on other military and international projects.”
CORTAC utilizes advanced materials science and engineering to deliver ergonomic solutions to military and public safety personnel who wear body armor, personal protective equipment & tactical gear platforms for extended periods. CORTAC’s flagship product, the CTAV, is built around our patent-pending Advanced Impact Resistance (AIR) technology & EverDry nanosurface. The CTAV is proven to enhance the comfort of wearing body armor by facilitating natural ventilation of body heat & accelerated evaporation of sweat. The CTAV is currently fielded by U.S. and allied Special Operations Forces, conventional military, security contractors, federal, state and local law enforcement and corrections personnel.
