American Body Armor XT01
Joe Friday Model
The XT01 Type II is part of the ABA Xtreme Series of concealable armor. Tested against the 9mm and .357 Magnum NIJ-designated rounds, the XT01 Type II design combines the capabilities of Honeywell Gold Shield ballistic material and Twaron Microlaminate for enhanced ballistic and chemical resistance. The combination of these materials provides reliable protection against a wide array of threats, while also offering an enhanced degree of flexibility. The XT01 offers competitive pricing, performance and comfort.
Armor Express Revolution
The Revolution is Armor Express’ top-of-the-line concealable carrier system. The shoulder area boasts an improved epaulet system and the addition of 3mm-thick Breathe-O-Prene padding. The Revolution also offers the microfiber Wearstrip on the lower inside lining of the carrier and an inner suspension system. The Wearstrip prevents holes from forming along the bottom edge of the carrier due to abrasion, which commonly occurs when the carrier rubs against your duty belt. The inner suspension system holds the protective panels in place and prevents them from sagging. The Revolution is available in both male and structured female princess cut designs.
K9 Storm Intruder
Major Mutt Gear
dog is man’s best friend; a canine is a partner willing to go through a door before you or be the first on scene in a foot chase. A partner that enthusiastic and fearless deserves a vest that was designed for Maximum Barrier Protection and doesn’t tip the scales at under 20 ounces. K9 Storm’s Intruder features an integrated camera with built-in night vision, allowing the handler to search a tunnel, building or forest. It’s virtually as good as having “eyes” to map out potential danger in a rescue/recovery disaster operation. The Intruder has a Special Ops handle to lift and lower your K9, as well as load-bearing V-rings for fast roping.
MSA Paraclete’s Shield Series
Safety without the Stink
MSA Paraclete’s Shield Series of Concealable Ballistic Vests are available in two choices of certified Level II and Level IIIA ballistic armor protection packages. It offers a 6-by-8-inch front trauma plate pocket and a four-point, flexible vest adjustment for added safety and a superb fit. The fully-removable straps, plus a hidden hook-and-loop closure for fast panel change-outs, make for ease in donning and doffing. The Shield Series of Concealable Ballistic Vests’ internal nylon mesh liner is moisture wicking and anti-microbial. The phase change materials used in the Shield’s construction interact with the body and the environment to moderate an officer’s body temperature. The outer shell features nanotechnology, providing resistance to staining.
Raising The Bar
Certified to meet the new NIJ .06 standard and rigorously tested against “special threats,” the Perform-XP body armor is also available with a new Perform-XP Level IIIA ballistic system. The Perform-XP consistently stops most bullets within the second or third layer of a ballistic panel. The remaining layers absorb the energy of the bullet, and tests have shown that Kevlar XP decreases back face signature by 15% or more, thereby reducing trauma injuries. It’s also up to 10% lighter than other commercially available technologies designed to defeat the most challenging NIJ Level IIIA ballistic threat — the .44 Magnum. Perform-XP is also engineered to protect against other “special threats” ammunition, such as the 9mm SXT 127 grain and FN 5.7×28.
Point Blank Endeavor Crossover
Bridging the Gap
Merging the ergonomic design of a concealable carrier with the functionality of a load-bearing vest, Point Blank’s Endeavor Crossover carrier provides the best combination of form, fit and function. Ideally suited for daily wear in any environment, the carrier allows for rapid insertion of ballistic panels from Point Blank concealable vests and is easy to don and doff while meeting your mission-specific needs.

Ruggedly durable and highly adaptive, Q4 provides optimum protection while allowing the base vest to “break away” in seconds.
Point Blank Vision

PROTECH Intruder G2 Shield
A Better View
The Intruder G2 shield features a 6.75 x 15.5-inch triangular viewport that provides increased visibility compared to a standard viewport. This multi-layered design contains overlapping acrylic and polycarbonate laminate ballistics in the front and back, which reinforces the seams and provides excellent protection from handgun threats. Other features include a padded forearm rest, horizontal ambidextrous handle, strobe-capable LED dual-lighting system and two non-skid, rubber rake bars. The ballistic shield measures 20 x 33 inches, weighs approximately 21 pounds and offers 660 square inches of coverage.
PROTECH Titan Assault Enhanced
The Titan Assault Enhanced can be customized to suit specific tactical maneuvers and is compatible with a spectrum of options currently offered by PROTECH Tactical. The standard carrier comes with front and back ballistic panels and is equipped with a 360-degree modular attachment system to accommodate PROTECH Tactical TP pouches and accessories. It includes an adjustable dual-weapon retention system in the shoulder area for individual shooting positions and dual external top-loading plate pockets on the front and back to hold 8 x 10-inch or 10 x 12-inch type III or type IV hard armor plates. The carrier also features adjustable shoulder- and side-closure systems to create an optimum fit for each officer.
The SM01F Type IIIA is part of the SAVVY Armor For Women Series of concealable armor. It is the first NIJ .06 compliant, form-fit female armor to be added to this brand. Tested against the .357 Sig and .44 Magnum NIJ-designated rounds, the SAVVY SM01F Type IIIA is also the first NIJ. 06 certified armor panel to use the exclusive waterproof protection of Gore-Tex fabric as a panel covering. The Gore-Tex fabric also provides odor and stain protection against environmental elements.
Second Chance Summit Series
A Cut Above
The MN01 Type IIIA boasts a thin, flexible design that features a hybrid of all DuPont Kevlar ballistic materials, providing enhanced ballistic performance against special threats, like the 5.7 FN hollow point. The MN01 Type IIIA also includes advanced perimeter and X-stitching to reinforce the armor panels while reducing blunt trauma. The MN01 Type IIIA adds to the existing family of Type IIA and II for superior value, performance and reliability.
Increased Ballistic Resistance
TurtleSkin SoftPlate IIIA body armor is a revolutionary new concealable, ballistic-resistant technology. Constructed from materials typically found in hard plate armor, the new SoftPlate armor pack offers expanded coverage and higher protection levels, along with the benefit of soft armor comfort. TurtleSkin SoftPlate armor technology expands effective IIIA ballistic coverage area to within one inch from the edge of the pack — effectively increasing the certified area of coverage by up to 40%, depending on the size of the pack. In addition, SoftPlate delivers a significant increase in blunt trauma resistance, further protecting officers from the deadly threats associated with ballistic impact. The unique construction and composition of the SoftPlate armor dissipates impact energy across the entire surface area of the pack to reduce the dangerous effects of localized blunt trauma when a projectile is stopped.
