Abstract : The patent concerns a conventional survival vest which is modified to integrate either rigid armor members or flexible fragmentation armor members, thus making it unnecessary to provide separate armor support equipment. The survival vest adjustable laces, that are normally positioned on the back, are moved to the side of the garment. Zippers are provided on the armor carriers which mate with the two sides of the zipper normally used on the survival vest. A plurality of pockets are provided on the back of the survival vest for receiving back armor elements which are then secured to the survival vest by a zipper near the collar.
