These particular upper arm protectors were designed for Sioen's own Tacticum series of body armour and plate carriers. They attach to buckles found on the shoulders of the vest/carrier usinng hook-and-loop webbing straps. Due to the attachment method we´d say that these are not directly compatible with most other vests/carriers on the market.
