Testing

As outlined in the NIJ ballistic standards, all of our armor plates are tested by government certified third party weapons testing laboratories in order to ensure the highest quality of safety for every plate. In order for plates to be NIJ certified they go through a rigorous torture test consisting of drops, rapid temperature changes, repeated strikes and more. The plates are tested for their ballistic protection both before and after the torture test to be absolutely positive that they provide the stated protection even after years of wear and tear. You know you can depend on The Best Bulletproof Vest.

Additionally, our armor exceeds the standards set by NIJ III standard 0115.00 for stab protection from both edged blades and spikes. An edged blade is any commercially machine blade that you might come across in a normal “on the street” situation. A spike is defined as a homemade or improvised blade, most commonly associated with a corrections environment. This level of stab protection also conveys shrapnel protection to our users. You can feel safe and confident when you are wearing The Best Bulletproof Vest.

Our body armor is meticulously engineered and outperforms government, law enforcement, and military standards. We use only the highest quality, lab tested, super dense, American made armor plates. All of our Bulletproof Vests exceed United States government standards for body armor and ballistic resistance provided through the U.S Department of Justice and National Institute of Justice. All Armor also exceeds all government stab and spike protection benchmarks. Every piece of body armor is inspected, tested, manufactured, and hand assembled in the USA. All testing is also performed at impartial 3rd party government accredited weapons labs. We believe proper testing and assembly can only happen in the U.S and at government approved arms testing facilities. We manufacture only one bulletproof vest and it truly is The Best Bullet Proof Vest.

Our armor is tested exclusively by government accredited weapons laboratories based in the United States. Any armor used in our vests must not only meet government weapons grade standards but exceed them by a significant margin in order to ensure that our ballistic vests are far superior even to those held to national, military, and law enforcement standards. That’s why all business operations, sourcing, materials, testing, and assembly are performed only in the United States. To ensure proper oversight and execution on every vest.

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.

Over sized Strike Face

Our vests have oversized strike plates to distribute the force of a projectile impact. We know that a larger armored plate means a safer bulletproof vest. That’s why all of our vests come with oversized bulletproof plates that are even larger than government & NIJ standards required for law enforcement and military personnel equipment.

Advanced Tactical Plate Carriers

We only offer the highest quality body armor in the United State, the tactical vests and armor plate carriers that hold that armor must also meet our insane quality standards. An innumerable amount of tactical advancements have been implemented into the plate carrier systems that come standard with all of our body armor packages.

“We coordinated with current and former military personnel in multiple branches of the armed forces. We also received detailed consulting from paramilitary forces and mercenary units to hone our vest down to the most utilitarian design while still implementing the most useful tactical achievements that integrate seamlessly and perform in both the lab and on the field.”

Body Armor Plate Storage

This vest comes with multiple armor plates and has both front and rear plate compartments to ensure maximum protection. The vest is comprised of multiple integrated ballistic plate compartments allowing for interchangeable armor plates and implements a full stop completely secure closure system to ensure all bulletproof plates remain comfortably in place. The plate storage was also heavily modified to accommodate our larger armor plates and other tactical features.

Durability

All vests are given a full lifetime warranty. The plate carrier is comprised of a breathable yet rugged material from our proprietary textile blend, that is guaranteed to last in any and all conditions. So feel free to use the vest in any way your mission deems necessary. We haven;t been able to break down the materials even after subjecting the vest to multiple grueling field tests while actively trying to damage the vest in extreme conditions with aggressive overuse and abuse.

“If you can break this vest we’d love to hear about how, then send you a brand new one.” -Field Testing Department

Versatility through MOLLE:

Molle (Modular Lightweight Load Carrying Equipment) webbing on the vest allows you to attach a wide array of tactical accessories to tailor a full custom tactical loadout fine tuned to the operator’s exact specification. MOLLE allows you to safely and securely carry multiple attachments, and our quick draw Molle attachment design allows you to adapt to ever changing scenarios in the field and modify your load out on the go. Experience the versatility and endless customization possibilities of The Best Bulletproof Vest.

Sizing 

This vest comes with our perfect fit guarantee. Regardless of your size or weight, the tactical adjustment module and adjustable stability harness included with this vest will fit both male and female users of all sizes. If for any reason the vest does not fit 100% perfectly, we will take your measurements at our own expense then modify the vest and have it custom tailored to your exact specifications.
