A vest that does not fit properly will not only be uncomfortable, but may not protect you properly. A properly fitted vest will ensure that you are comfortable, which is vital when operating in threatening environments. Moreover, a properly fitted vest should allow a full range of movement, and should not be a hindrance to any activity. This is again vital for those in physically demanding roles who still need protection. A bullet proof vest is designed to protect vital organs, and so extends no lower than the navel; it should sit just above the belly button. If it hangs any lower it may hinder movement- any higher and it will not properly protect all the vital organs.
The importance of having a properly fitted vest should not be underestimated, and this size guide should provide the information necessary to choose your vest. If you are unsure as to which size will fit you best, it is recommended to opt for a bigger size rather than smaller. This is because the body armor is quite adjustable, and opting for a bigger size will allow you to adjust the Velcro straps to make it a comfortable fit. If a vest is too small, it will not offer adequate protection. Below are the corresponding measurements to vest sizes:
**The Length Measurement is the Length in inches between the sternum (The top of the chest) to the navel (belly button)**
These sizes do not necessarily reflect sizes in other garments or from other companies. Make sure you measure!

Purchasing Body Armor in the USA:
Felons are prohibited from purchasing body armor.
It is perfectly legal for all other USA residents to purchase and possess body armor with no background checks or paperwork required. However, there may be state-specific laws you have to abide by, eg. Connecticut residents may only buy body armor face-to-face, not online. We do not keep track of each state's laws as the legal responsibility rests on the buyer. If you order it, we assume you are doing so legally and we will ship it. Check your state laws before you order, to ensure that you do not break any laws. We do not ship this product to any country other than the USA.
The protective plates have a 5 year warranty. The outer vest carriers have a 1 year warranty that covers any manufacturer defects.
