Cant fault VestGuard or this armour in the slightest. i had trouble with my sizing and they went above and beyond expectations to help me. This armour is perfect i wear this on 12hour shifts and is comfy to wear right the way through, theres plenty of adjustment room to so you can wear it in what best suits you. The quality is out standing even the velcro straps you can tell are the best out there just like the armour itself. i highly recommended this armour and VestGuard themselves

Excellent service.
Polite, friendly and professional.
Purchased my first piece of equipment today and the service was great.
Explained clearly what product met my needs, sized up and made sure I was comfortable with the fit. I was well looked after from when I entered the store to the time that I left.
Sure to return when I need anything else.
