In June of 2020 we introduced new removable inserts for our soft armor that are lower in weight. Now we offer our standard weight as light and the new lighter and lightest options. All are Certified Level IIIA by the National Institute of Justice with similar performance. The Lighter and Lightest provide special threat protection.  In the world of body armor the more you spend the less in weight it gets. Our Lightest option is the best by far!

  • Includes Certified NIJ IIIA Soft Armor 
  • Now black in color!
  • 5 year limited warranty

Soft body armor

The two orders, one for a carrier, the second for soft armor, arrived really fast by comparison to most things these days. Of course, I haven't tested the new armor, and don't intend to. I am placing my life in your hands, and based upon your word. Compared to my military experience with body armor, this is a dream to wear. I bought the lightest (and most expensive) version, but having the lightest possible load is very appealing to me, even if I have to pay a few (hundred) more dollars for it. I plan to get more, but am on a budget, so those buys are in the " whenI have the money" category.
Anyway, thanks. Exactly as advertised, quick delivery, and great fit. Hope the time never comes where I have to use it. Need more for everyone, and will slowly build the inventory.
Great service!

Lighter IIIA+ Ballistic Panels

I needed soft armor panels for my outer carrier, under my ceramic plates. Thankfully, you list the vest panel sizes, which allowed me to find the right size panels to fit. The panels were in stock and shipped quickly. They appear to be well made and should serve me very well. Thank you for listing the panel sizes!
