Advanced Stopping Power

VestGuard NIJ Level IIIA (3a) soft armour panels are the best solution offering unrivalled all round protection for military, government and civillians in high threat areas of the UK and across the world.

Most popular solution for journalists, government departments, military organisations and corporate travellers heading to high threat environments.

Providing front, back and side protection against Handguns like the 9mm, .357 Magnum and .44 magnum, with added high levels of stab protection and fragmentation protection from explosions and IEDs. Combined with a hard armour plate the panels will offer rifle protection for international requirements (plates sold separately).

Tested by the NIJ approved facility in the US, independently tested here in the UK, and field tested for years by customers to provide the required ballistic level of protection guaranteed by VestGuard.

Can fit into any VestGuard outer cover design and available as a complete set of body armour in our body armour section.

 

The VestGuard range of Soft Armour Panels (SAPs) lies at the core of all personal ballistic protection systems supplied. All ballistic panels are manufactured in the UK to maintain product traceability and ensure quality standards are rigorously upheld. Every fielded armour panel can be tracked to ensure batch continuity and performance exceeds the standards.

VestGuard panels are designed with the following philosophy:

 

Lightweight

Saving weight versus other vests on the market ensures the user is comfortable wearing the vest for longer periods.

 

Thin

A thin solution reduces bulk improving the ergonomics of load carriage and provides covert teams with discreet protection.

 

And flexible

A flexible solution allows the vest to mould to the shape of the user, improving comfort and mobility.

To improve the longevity of our ballistic panels, all VestGuard Soft Armour Panels (SAPs) are heat sealed to be 100% water proof, reducing the risk of fibre degradation through environmental impact, water damage, and time to zero.

All VestGuard soft armour solutions are designed to work with all Hard Armour Plate solutions offered enhancing user customisation and providing opportunity for both weight and cost reductions versus other rifle protection systems based on in-conjunction-with design. All our vests are manufactured by ourselves in the UK. They are tested rigorously to the highest standards to ensure that the product we sell will be of the highest quality and offer the greatest protection to our customers. This vest has been tested and certified, and offers the protection required by the American National Institute of Justice (NIJ), for NIJ Level body armour.
