Product Overview 

As one of VestGuard signature cover designs the Covert Tactical is extremely popular with international security organisations, close protection officers, and maritime security, and law enforcement. This cover design is multi-functional and can be fitted with both soft and hard armour and is light and thin enough to be worn discreetly under a jacket or as part of a uniform.  This design can be used as part of VestGuard's versatile solution allowing customers to purchase different covers for a variety of environments and threat levels, allowing one set of armour to be transferred between covers saving money and system weight.

25 September 2017  | 

Off to Libya today on a rushed job needed new body armour, called vestguard this morning spoke to Alex who was very helpful, they offered same day delivery, which surprised me, however I asked if I could collect it from their office, which I have just done, very smart office with lots of interesting kit! All in all good service at a reasonable price.

Im very satisfied with how I was treated
11 February 2019  | 

I have been looking for body armour for a few weeks and came across Vestguard. I was really impressed with the layout of the website and the information I was provided with. I did still call the head office to gain further clarification and although I didn't purchase the body armour in the end due to a change in environment with my work, I am still very satisfied with how I was treated and will definitely look to contact them again if there is any need for armour.

VestGuard body armour may not conform to standard clothing sizes and we recommend reviewing the below sizing guide before purchasing. We also strongly recommend completing the Size Submission Form at the bottom of this page or the forms on this page either before or after your purchase and our team will suggest the most suitable size for your needs. 

Body Armour -  Please consider the clothing that will be worn during typical duties under or over your body armour. Body armour is ergonomically designed to sit around your belly button +/- 1 inch. This is the ideal position to allow the wearer to sit or crouch whilst wearing body armour. Most of our body armour is adjustable around the waist and shoulders and will typically size up and down a size to meet your individual requirements.

Helmets -  Take measurement from the forehead and extend the tape all the way around your head

For assistance please complete a measurement sheet and email to sales@vestguard.com or have your measurements ready and call +441621816614

Frequently Asked Sizing Questions 

Q. How do I know what size I am?

A. You will need a tape measure and our sizing table. Measure around the largest circumference of your Chest and Waist/Stomach. Using these two measurements identify the sizes of both on the sizing table and then select the highest of the two. This will be the most suitable size to fit your body shape.  We suggest completing the Size Submission Form to ensure the best size is recommended to match your measurements.

Q. What height does the vest fit?

A. People are all different shapes and sizes and body armour works differently between overt and covert styles. If you are between 5'8" and 6'1" our standard armour should be suitable to fit your body.  If you have a shorter or longer upper body than usual please contact us to discuss which size is most suitable for you. 

Q. Do you supply female sizes? 

A. All of our NIJ level II(2), NIJ level IIIA(3A) and Home Office HO1 KR1 SP1 armour are made from very flexible and thin layers which contour and fit the body shape of both our male and female customers. Some higher level solutions may not be as flexible in standard stock sizes and may not suit some body shapes. Please contact our sales team if you require further assistance.

Q. What happens if the vest does not fit me?

A. We will always do our very best to supply the perfect size first time. If you feel you do not have the right size please contact us to discuss how we can assist you. 

Q. I want a vest that will fit me perfectly, can this be done?

A. All our vests are designed to size up and size down, with most of our latest models offering full tailoring over the shoulders, and around the waist. This allows the vest to be fitted exactly to the individuals preferences. in 99% of cases, a standard vest will fit our customers. By completing the Size Submission Form below our team can assess each individual and advise further. With over 20 years of experience in the industry we can guarantee satisfaction.
