This cable assembly comes in both new and pre-owned condition. Pre-owned means that there is some light wear from use, but the assembly is still in good condition.
This cable assembly for the US Army IOTV enables the emergency removal of the vest. The cable routes through the vest holding all integral pieces of the vest together. When the cable is pulled it releases the front and rear carriers along with the side plate carriers allowing the vest to fall free from the wearer.
