Instead of trying to adapt an existing model, we went back to the drawing board and designed this vest ‘ground-up’.
A professional and clean appearance is vital for on-air personalities, and at the same time the vest needs to offer them complete peace of mind.
The Press Vest design is unique in the market. With foldaway neck protection, Coolmax® lining and inner lumbar support, the Medial Personnel Vest continues to be the number one choice of media personnel. MPV was designed to not only protect, but to look good doing it.
Smooth outer carrier constructed in abrasive-resistant CorduraT with heavy duty Velcro closures, all in internationally-recognized PRESS blue.
