SHOULD I ORDER UP/DOWN WITH SIZING?
Neither! Measure. The only way to get a good fit is to take measurements of your chest, sleeve and waist and compare to our sizing chart. The chart was made specifically for our clothing with the soft armor installed. If you are not sure, call us. Better yet, send us your measurements in the note section of your order or to firstname.lastname@example.org, and we'll size it to you.
IIA OR IIIA, WHAT DO I NEED?
In most circumstances, IIA. It covers the most common calibers and velocities that are encountered in violent crimes. It is lighter, more flexible, cooler and overall more comfortable. It is also covert. The happier you are wearing your bullet resistant clothing, the more likely you are to wear it.
We usually recommend IIIA for Law Enforcement Officers or security guards in a high risk area or job. By going to IIIA, you gain protection against .44 Magnum, .357 SIG, and 1oz shotgun slugs, with the downside of added bulk. All of which are incredibly rare in violent crime. To an extent, the average citizen is more likely to be killed by literally any other means than these rounds.
ARE THE ITEMS SLASH AND STAB RESISTANT?
Yes. All of our items are highly resistant to slashes and stabs from edged weapons. A slash/stab demonstration video can be found in our video section.
IS THE ARMOR HARD PLATES?
All of our armor is what is referred to as soft armor. It is made of a laminated and woven aramid fabric. The panels are incredibly flexible. Any of our clothes can be rolled up and put in a small backpack should you choose to do so.
DOES YOUR HOODIE HAVE HEAD PROTECTION?
Any product that claims it's soft armor can protect your head is fraudulent. While ballistic fabrics can disperse the necessary energy to prevent penetration and significant backface deformation in your torso, your flesh still absorbs a tremendous amount. Your skull does not have any give. Even smaller rounds like .380 will crush your skull upon impact.
All ballistic panels carry a 5 year warranty from the manufacturing date. Panels are serialized and manufactured as a set as well as registered to the buyer.
Failure to properly care for your jacket in accordance to the included care instructions may void this warranty. Any modifications made to our products without the explicit written permission of Advanced Firearm Accessories, LLC will constitute a violation of our terms and conditions and will void the products warranty.
