The Marine Corps is buying new body armor as it works to upgrade the fit, feel and protection of vital gear | Marine Corps Times

The Marine Corps recently selected a Michigan-based company to provide as many as 65,000 soft armor inserts for its upgraded bodyarmor suite.

The move is one of many being made by both the Marine Corps and the Army to make body armor lighter, more resilient, fit better and provide adjustable levels of protection for Marines and soldiers.

Armor Express announced the contract award, which will include nearly $60 million of orders for as many as 1.3 million Plate Carrier Generation III soft armor inserts and data reports by October 2023.

The inserts include base vests, side plate pockets and cummerbunds.
