This new lower back protector in ACU is for the US Army Improved Outer Tactical Vest. When worn with the IOTV it increases your threat protection by covering the exposed part of your lower back. With the Small Arms Protective Insert it provides protection from fragmentation and 9mm bullets, the same as the IOTV. The groin protector attaches directly to the vest with two straps.
