The Osprey body armor system has been in use by the United Kingdom extensively since the invasion of Iraq in 2003. During this long history of deployment many enhancements and special versions of the Osprey system have been produced. This Royal Navy Civilian Osprey Vest is one example of a specialized version of the Osprey vest that is currently in use.
With a requirement to offer a protective vest to civilians that did not give the appearance of the wearer being a combatant, the Royal Navy standardized on this vest. The deep blue color is closely associated with the Royal Navy and the vest lacks the traditional PALS system that the standard Osprey Vest has. These characteristics make this vest ideal for offering protection to civilians without having the enemy see them as a potential threat on the battlefield.
