FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Are your vests really "bullet proof"?
No vest is truly bulletproof unfortunately. The vests and carriers that we do offer though ensure that under the proper conditions, they are more than capable of saving your life at the indicated protection level.
What do the levels (Level IIIA, III, IV etc.) mean?
What is the difference between body vests and plate carriers?
Body vests are anti ballistic gear that have armor plates directly sewn or attached onto the vest which are usually more easily worn under other clothing making them concealable and can be easier to put on or remove. Plate carriers are vests that have slots for body plates so that you are able to determine the protection level you need. Not all plate carriers come with plates and unless you already own plates you may have to purchase them separately.

The following brands, among others, could be excluded from our discount codes:

Why was my card charged but my order not shipped yet?
Payment is processed immediately upon order checkout. As many of our products are manufactured to order, they have extended lead times and will be shipped to you upon completion.
How much is shipping?
Shipping costs can vary depending on the location and type of item. Most of our protective vests and gear will ship for free unless stated otherwise.
Do you ship internationally?
We are unable to ship most hard armor and vests outside of the US due to ITAR (International Traffic in Arms) regulations. If you would like to inquire about whether a particular product does allow for international shipping, please contact us here.
How long will it take to deliver my order?
Lead times are highlighted at the top of most products descriptions on our website. If not, depending on the delivery address and the item, delivery on average can take anywhere from 10-30 business days. Certain vests and carriers have long lead times as they are manufactured on demand, or are higher in demand.
Additionally, various external events have previously, and may in the future, cause a significant increase in demand for body armor products which may also delay or temporarily increase lead times for various products.
It is the customer's responsibility to make note of the specific lead times mentioned on the product page. If you are not sure about a product's lead time, you may contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org before placing your order.
