Armor express offers 5 different types of ballistic

By Thomasgalvin Subscribe to RSS | January 23rd 2012 | Views:

Armor Express based out of Michigan has become a player in the police equipment and body armor industry. Their full line of high end body armor is often thought of as the ultimate in police equipment offerings. Although not the least expensive option among other body armor manufacturers, many police departments and the aw enforcement community throughout the U.S. swear by their comfort and fit. With some of the starting concealable models starting in the $600 to $700 range and highest end models actually going for almost $1,000, performance and comfort are an absolute must. The company offers all of it's products completely ala carte which means that each of the actual components are purchased separately. The components include the actual ballistic inserts, the carrier cover, and the soft or hard trauma plate. This can become confusing and it often encouraged that you work with a reputable and knowledgeable dealer/distributor to walk you through the process if you are unfamiliar with their line.

Armor express offers 5 different types of ballistic inserts which include from top of the line to their correctional models. The top of the line model of ballistic inserts includes the Seraph line which is the lightest weight and most flexible inserts they offer in Level II and IIIA. The thinness/weight is .21/.82 lbs/ft for Level II and .28/1.12 lbs/ft for Level IIIA. When this vest is coupled with their top of the line Revolution carrier, we have even had officers tell us it's like wearing a sweat shirt because of the extreme level of comfort achieved. The Revolution carrier has their trademarked Breeze Knit moisture wicking and anti microbial inner lining and Breathe-O-Prene padded shoulders for comfort and weight disbursement. In addition the cover also comes with pockets for 5" x 8" or 7" x 10" trauma plates. The other offering of insert include the following (in order of performance); Halo Ballistic System, Quantum Ballistic System, Gemini (dual purpose offering both spike and ballistic protection) and then the Taurus line which is strictly correctional body armor providing spike protection only. All inserts can be coupled with Revolution, Evolution or Equinox which are all the traditional types of concealable carriers. The other options include their Lo-Pro model which is essentially a special made sleeveless T-shirt carrier, their outer dress uniform shirt carrier OR their Q.C.S. which is their outer quilted model. The last option for the ala carte package includes choosing either a hard or soft trauma plate. Armor Express has 2 kinds of hard plates which are their ARA-shock plate or T-shock plate. Soft trauma plates include their soft trauma pac OR enhancement pac.

In addition to concealable body armor, Armor express also manufacturers a complete line of military and tactical body armor and other police equipment which includes Ballistic shields, tactical helmets and combat helmets, knee and elbow pads as well as ballistic blankets, seats and even IED shoe inserts. The company has a network of dealers and distributors throughout the U.S. Several may offer on-site fittings and because of cost and ala carte options, most orders are made to order with manufacturing lead times of about 4 to 6 weeks. Some dealers that include a knowledgeable staff and offer on-site fittings as well as competitive pricing include Police Equipment Depot and INTAPOL Industries. Check out their offerings of police equipment today as well as Armor Express body armor which in our opinion is the best in the law enforcement marketplace today.
