Government Rating

The standards for body armor set by the government are published and maintained by the NIJ, the National Institute for Justice. The NIJ has separate standards for ballistic protection and stab protection and all of our armor exceeds both of these standards. NIJ standard 0101.06 describes the qualifications for ballistic protection and sets levels of protection, depending on the caliber of ammunition they defend against. All of our armor meets and exceeds the NIJ standard  listed for ballistic and stab protection.

We use the United States Government’s National Institute of Justice Standards as a rating system. We test our bullet proof vests at government sanctioned weapons labs using those ratings as benchmarks. Every piece of our armor exceeds all government safety standards for ballistic resistance and materials set through the United States Department of Justice by the National Institute of Justice. We consider the government rating used for law enforcement and the U.S military a bare minimum, not a goal. Our armor will always surpass its listed government rating in every way from ballistic resistance all the way through plate size. On every single testing metric listed by the NIJ, our armor outperforms the government standard.

“The NIJ standard is the only nationally accepted standard for the body armor worn by law enforcement”

-The United States National Institute of Justice

We only offer body armor that exceeds government, law enforcement, and military standards by a wide margin. All testing is also performed at impartial 3rd party government accredited weapons labs. Every piece of body armor is inspected, tested, manufactured, and hand assembled in the USA. We believe proper testing and assembly can only happen in the U.S and at government approved arms testing facilities. keeping clients alive is our only concern and with a 100% success rate its safe to say we’re the best at it.
