E.L.S.A. Rapid Concealment Plate Carrier by Martinson IndustriesMartinson Industries
On the outside, ELSA, Emergency Life Saving Armor, appears to be an ordinary soft briefcase, but with one swift action of a YKK zipper, ELSA quickly transforms into fully functional, armored plate carrier. ELSA can be deployed and secured within seconds, instantly creating a safe barrier between you and any potential threat.
Elsa will accept and adjust to industry standard sized hard plates or soft armor inserts.
Manufactured from highly durable 1000 D Cordura and the latest ITW Ghillie Tex hardware, ELSA is tough and ready for the task at hand. ELSA’s unique design features full front MOLLE panel and three rows on the top back, allows the user to prearrange internal items in any configuration they deem necessary. With ELSA, you can be fully prepared to spring into action quickly, efficiently, and with confidence.

Not quite the same quality as the original from Phalanx, but still pretty good. The Fabric seems a tad thinner and doesn't seem to have the same water resistant coating (waxy) on the inside. Biggest difference is the use of standard buckles instead of the Cobra Style. Also the handles have just a bit of stitching to differentiate the two handles instead of the band of fabric on one, not quite as tactile but also a bit less conspicuous. All minor changes but annoying if you're having to integrate with older versions.
