Silesia is United Shield_s latest and most advanced search suit. It is designed to be worn by EOD/IED technicians to provide the optimum balance between protection and mobility and was developed in close collaboration with leading bomb disposal teams.
A key feature of the Silesia Advance Search Suit is the special four-piece construction (jacket, groin protector, trousers and over boots) which provide fragmentation and blast protection to the whole body, including back, front, side, neck, under arm, and lower pelvic region.
