Truly Concealable and Truly Comfortable

I operate a business where I have a lot of face to face interactions with customers that would not expect me to be wearing body armor. So, true conceal-ability is a must for me. The threat of a firearm confrontation is quite unlikely for what I do, but in this current work that we live in, who knows…That said, this is not my first set of armor and not my first “low-vis/concealable” armor. Nonetheless, this is the best I have owned or seen. I have the Lightest IIIA+ version and even with a regular T-shirt on top of the armor, the people interact with in a daily basis doesn’t even have a clue. Moreover, I can wear the armor for a 12-14 hours days without it ever becoming uncomfortable . With other concealable armor that I own, I definitely would not be able to use it unless I put a jacket over and would definitely become uncomfortable after a few hours. This is one of the best truly concealable and NIJ certified armor money can buy.

Good fit, weight of plates are balanced very well, easy to adjust. I wear mine daily and I find it comfortable to wear during my shift.


No where near as heavy as I thought it would be. I am completely satisfied 👍🇺🇸

Love the fit and comfort of this concealable vest. Thin and definitely concealable

Awesome Vest

Armor Carry Bag

The bag works great

Great quality and service

The helmet seems well made and fits right. It took me a minute to figure out the strap adjustment. I don't have a reference point for long term wearability but it seems like a typical MICH style helmet. Everything I've bought here has been solid quality, and to some extent you can find that from many suppliers once you know what to expect at what price point. What sets this company apart is the level of personal service and response to questions. They have always gone the extra mile to make good on discount codes or other issues and they seem to also have an ethic of taking care of repeat customers. That was always the case with the best brick and mortar retailers, especially with family owned small businesses. It's still somewhat rare in the online environment, and deserves to be called out for that reason.


I love mine it fits very well multiple ways to adjust fitting. Shipping took a little long but wasn’t BodyArmors fault weather delays caused this. Worse it on duty for a weeks and feels comfortable. If you like your vests tight the side panels can be a little uncomfortable since they don’t bend to your sides. Definitely would recommend if you are wanting a level III vest

Great product arrived in leas than a week.

Very smooth

My order/purchase went seamlessly.
I actually ordered the wrong size and spoke with Julian about it and mailed it back. We will see how the RMA plays out.
I have confidence that it will be smooth.
Overall, i will recommend!

Great product

Level III+ Steel Plate
Enrique Elias
Heads up

Perhaps the price has increased some. Yet the quality far exceeds any price. With the craziness of our time and insane beliefs. It's comforting that I have some good protective equipment while I'm riding, while I'm walking.its also a comforting feeling to know that my investment may never be used.
Strength in preparation.

Great fit and material the padding a big plus.

VIP T-shirt

I love the VIP T-shirt armor I’ll wear it on the job every day most comfortable armor I’ve ever worn


Fit is good. I got the lightest version. Could easily wear comfortably under my hard armor as well as stand alone. With the lightest model I think you could wear this under some normal clothes if they weren’t fitted and no one would even notice.

great price fast shipping and lightweight

title says it all. recommended to my peers and they too like what they purchased.. and did i say fast shipping..

Best backpack

I love my new bullet proof backpacks! Already took them to the mountains. Had a great time and the backpacks were comfortable and have lots of storage room. It’s the best backpack I’ve ever had. I’m very pleased with my purchase. I will be ordering a third pack soon. Thanks guys over at bodyarmordirect!

Rock Solid

Great product, great aervice. Best all around in the business. Fast, professional,
and comprehensive on all fronts.

Great Vest!

I recently bought a VIP T Shirt vest and I love it. I used to be tempted to take my outer vest off and leave it in my office because of the weight and stiffness. I now put my vest on before I leave my house and it doesn't come off until I get back home after working many typical 12-16 hour days. I highly recommend this vest to anyone looking for quality and protection!
