Perhaps the first and only fully certified EN ISO 20471:2013 high visibility stab resistant vests, offering exceptional protection from knives/edged weapons (CAST KR1), and shanks (CAST SP1), hypodermic needles and blunt force/impact (VPAM W5)
All officially tested and certified in accordance with international standards. You can view our certifications here
Our EN ISO 20471:2013 model is designed to be worn on top of your upper body garment, ideal when quick deployment is essential. It also offers you the opportunity to let your skin breath during a break or when yourself in a safe environment (i.e. your car or office). Our overt stab resistant body armour does not feature any zips, as historically they are the weakest part of any body armour and break easily when hit with a blunt object. This model is also available in black or navy blue.
Our collective experience of over 100 years within security, police, armed forces and corrections has enabled us to design the most dependable and 'operationally sound' body armour for you.
