​We are suppliers of lightweight and thin bulletproof vests which are made to a very high standard.  We are veteran owned and operated with over 30 years of military, police, security and covert intelligence experience.

Our vests meet the NIJ II or NIJ IIIA (0101.06) standard depending on which vest you select. The test results are available upon request.

NOT China!  There are a large amount of manufacturers globally who pretend that the ballistic material they use to make a bulletproof vest is not made in China but most are.  Chinese ballistic materials are inferior.  Our manufacturer is Composite Solutions and non-chinese is used.

Our website is setup to conduct online sales within the U.S.A

​We sell to LAW ABIDING individuals only. If you intend to commit a crime while wearing or using a product sold by us you are prohibited from purchasing said products. In addition, we do not sell to minors.

In the United States it is legal to purchase and possess body armor, apart from a few exceptions:

​In New York, the ban of body armor for private citizens is being debated;

In some states such as Kentucky, committing a crime while wearing or even possessing body armor is a crime in and of itself.

In Louisiana, it is illegal to wear body armor on school property

We do not sell to customers in Connecticut.

​It is the customers responsibility to ensure that they are legally allowed to possess body armor and we will not be held liable for you not knowing the laws of your country!

There are handgun threats and rifle threats. Soft bullet resistant material stop handgun rounds and fragmentation but only a rigid rifle plate stops a rifle round. Level IIA, Level II and Level IIIA will stop the majority of pistol round plus 12 gauge and OO buckshot but no material is ever 100% ‘bulletproof’.  We only sell the current NIJ Level II or IIIA 0101.06 standard, (the latter also protects against Level IIA & Level II).  All bulletproof clothing is NIJ IIIA!

​Rifle rounds require Level III or Level IV ballistic plates made from either steel, ceramic or polyethylene – usually 10″ x 12″ weighs from 4 to 9 lbs per plate to cover the Chest and/or Back. Doubling up two Level IIIA WILL NOT stop a rifle projectile!
