Today’s special forces and elite law enforcement professionals face an unprecedented range of threats in the field.
And compromising tactical effectiveness for protection simply isn’t an option.
The TAPR is a modular half-face platform that can be configured to integrate with most popular helmet systems and communications gear. It’s engineered for rapid deployment and reliable protection while preserving combat readiness and freedom of movement.
Designed to integrate seamlessly into your plate carrier, battle belt, or rig with the included pouch, the TAPR is often the best practical protection you can carry against a range of lethal and nonlethal threats.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Half-face masks do not provide sufficient protection from CBRN threats, and the TAPR was NOT designed for prolonged exposure to unknown environments, blister agents, or toxic industrial chemicals. Selection of a suitable filter depends on the type and concentration of the anticipated toxic agent. The TAPR equipped with a TIC or CWA filter is only safe for use in an environment containing at least 19.5% oxygen. The principles of filter selection and application are described in the filter user guides.
