Marine Evaporative Cooling Vest (ECV)

The ECV is an individual microclimate system that provides cooling relief in hot climates when conducting foot patrols and vehicle convoys. Used primarily under the OTV, the ECV was procured in response to an Urgent Universal Statement of Need. Manufactured out of fire resistant material, the ECVs open weave mesh provides evaporative cooling. This system will not be sustained since the OTVs replacement, the Modular Tactical Vest, has a mesh weave permanently attached to the inside of the vest to provide evaporative cooling.

One size fit for all.
