Vortex™ body armor offers users the combined properties of strength, comfort and performance, all at an incredible value. The IIIA is great for concealed wear, but is also used by tactical teams across the country.

Versatile performance – An advanced combination of slim construction, lightweight fibers, and outstanding strength – the Vortex offers a versatile ballistic package.

Advanced protection – The Vortex armor has been built to match the most strenuous requirements, including our in-house special threat ballistic testing. This soft ballistic is capable of stopping some of the most advanced rounds, including the 5.7 x 28 Lead Free.

Each of our ballistic lines is tested beyond the NIJ Standard – in-house, with special threat requirements as deemed necessary by you, our customer. Our goal is to give you the peace-of-mind that can only come with watching your purchase be put to the test, right before your eyes. Our in-house testing facility is state of the art, and our capabilities are beyond many of the certified labs in the field today.

Soft armor comes protected in a seam-sealed ripstop pad cover. Each configuration is certified to the National Institute of Justice (NIJ) Standards, as well as vigorously tested in-house at our Ballistic Research Laboratory (BRL). During testing we go above and beyond the anticipated testing protocols in order to ensure that our armor products are second to none.
