2-5. ASSEMBLY AND PREPARATION FOR USE (Cont)
Open vest and lay flat (outside exposed).
Extract chest strap from right pocket tunnel and three retaining loops on rear of vest.
Insert strap through retaining loops of LPU-10/P (ensure LPU-10/P is face up with inflation lanyard facing
down) and through three retaining loops on rear of vest.
Insert strap through retaining loops of second LPU-10/P (ensure LPLI-10/P is face up with inflation lanyard

Putting On Armor. For maximum comfort and protection, the body armor must be properly adjusted. The insert
must be worn straight and centered on the front of the chest. Twisted or off center armor affects body balance
and interferes with activities. For proper balance, the shoulder straps must be adjusted evenly. Armor should be
snug but not too tight, as overtightening may inhibit the armor insert quick-release capability.
