Ablative/Flak Armor is a form of personal protection which combines the aspects of Ablative and Flak Armor into a single design. While this combination makes the armor bulkier than its predecessors it provides greater versatility and significant protection against every modern hand-held weapon. Ablative/Flak armor is available in vest, jacket, pants and full suit formats.
