Groin protection is important, on top of your genitals there´s lots of large blood vessels down there and even the smallest piece of shrapnel can do really bad damage. This particular groin protector was designed for Sioen's own Tacticum series of body armour and plate carriers, but due to the universal hook-and-loop (with loop on the front and hook towards the wearers body) attachment it will function with any vest/carrier with a suitable hook-and-loop detail.
