The Pelvic Protection System (PPS) is a two-tiered system: Tier I Protective Under Garment (PUG) and Tier II Protective Outer Garment (POG). The PUG is a lightweight ballistic protective under garment worn next to the skin that comes in 14 sizes; seven female and seven male. It provides improved protection of the pelvis, femoral arteries and lower abdominal organs in a blast or fragmentation event. The PUG also reduces the penetration of dirt into wounds to minimize the risk of infection from fine debris. The POG is worn over the Army Combat Uniform (ACU) trousers. It provides fragmentation protection of the pelvis, femoral arteries and lower abdominal organs. The POG provides ballistic protection similar to that of the Improved Outer Tactical Vest (IOTV).
