If you want to wear your stab-proof vest openly and need plenty of space for your equipment, the tactical vest from Armadillo Tex is just right for you. The outer fabric of the vest is made of a very durable open-mesh black polyester. This makes it particularly breathable and also ideal for outdoor use. There are 4 large pockets on the front. Individual patches can be attached to the large velcro surfaces. On the back side another bag can be attached flexibly. This is ensured by the many ribbons to which many other items can be attached. As a special feature, there is a large slide-in compartment on the front side, which can be accessed via a robust zipper. Bullet-proof inserts can be integrated here as required. This makes your stab-proof vest bullet-proof in no time at all, without permanently increasing the weight unnecessarily. The vest is intentionally kept short so that you can still comfortably wear your belt with equipment or the weapon holster.
To put on the universal size vest, it is pulled over your head. The vest is adjusted to the right size by a waist belt on the front. Then the vest is closed with large velcro straps on the back. The protective areas of the front and back overlap, so that you are protected all around.
The technology used to make our stab protection vests and other stab-proof garments is innovative and unique throughout the world. After many years of intensive research, we have succeeded in manufacturing a textile composite that is safe, light and flexible at the same time. Our tactical stab-proof vest weighs only approx. 1.8 kg, for example. The protective layer is made of a high-strength aramid fabric to which a special plastic is inseparably applied. The combination of high strength fibres and the energy absorbing plastic create a material of which its specific properties even exceed those of stainless steel plates. The weight is approx. 4.5 times lower than that of a comparably thick stainless steel plate. We have taken the armadillo as a model to ensure flexibility and breathability. Just like this armored mammal, we make use of an overlapping scaly structure. However, our scaly structure differs from that of other suppliers in that it is not possible to push it apart. This allows us to achieve a high degree of safety in combination with maximum flexibility.
