Furthermore, the latest DT Alpha vest is modular, and can be equipped with ballistic and/or knife protection. or e.g. life jacket. With these accessories, the function of the vest changes in an astonishingly short time, about 20 seconds. The DT Alpha always remains as the dog's uniform, the accessories are added or removed as needed.
