The Sarkar Defence Demining Vest has been designed to provide maximum comfort and protection to the upper body, neck, shoulders, groin and thighs of deminers against blast type anti-personnel mines. It is a side opening overt vest that can either come with 360 degree protection or with a mesh back, giving good ventilation for hot weather operations.
The design enables quick donning and fast removal.
