The IIA panels are a bit heavier than I anticipated, perhaps because the panels themselves are larger than a conventional concealed set of soft body armor panels (SBA). I wear a concealed IIIA for work as a deputy sheriff, for reference. The zippered carrier does makes donning/doffing easier compared to a concealed set. I ordered a grey carrier, but mine seems more bluish in bright light. I may buy the black carrier to better conceal the interior panels carrier material, which is black. I often don’t bother to zip up the exterior vest, which exposes the interior panel pockets/carriers (which I do zip up for proper protection. I think most casual observers wouldn’t really notice; but even if they did, they likely won’t recognize that I am wearing SBA. Otherwise, the actual vest itself has an adequate number of zippered pockets and provides warmth (as though the ballistic panels don’t do that already!) The carrier does a decent job of concealing the panels. However the panels overlap in front to provide proper protection, thus making the overall fit bulkier (and heavier) compared to regular concealed SBA. I found myself asking: “does this vest make me look fat?”. Unfortunately, yes it does. I’m 5’7”, 170lbs. I fit a size 40 jacket, which leaves just enough space to conceal a small firearm in a shoulder holster. I purchased a medium.
What I was looking for.
I chose this one for two reasons. First it has the option for IIA or IIIA RATING and I opted for the IIIA model. Secondly I can wear this most of the year without concern for the weather. I'm 6'2" tall and about 205lbs and I went with a size Large. It fits well and the armor comes to just above my bellybutton. The vest is comfortable and not too bulky which I like. The last time I wore armor I was in the military and that was way heavier. I'm praying I never have to find out if this will stand up to the list of rounds it's rated for. I have 13 kids to think about and get home to so I think this was worth the money. Lastly I expressed my wanting one to my family and they got me a gift card to help out. They know the world is crazy and they want their Uncle Matt home.
The fit is perfect for me. Even the cuts at 4 and 8 are awesome! I am a wide guy and the size I chose with the extra armor works for me. I am definitely going to get a hoody with base IIA a well. If you are on the fence because of time to get the product don’t be. Purchase to door was very fast. I did not have time to even think about when it was coming and it came. Plus it’s Kevlar! The quality is top notch!
I was very happy when I received the vest today. No defects I could find, everything fit well and is very comfortable to wear. I believe after seeing the quality of the product first-hand that it will provide the protection advertised. Glad I found a company that makes affordable quality protective gear.
Excellent product, Im a big guy, sent in custom measurements and it fits great. I live in Michigan, very warm as well with the soft plates. Makes conceal carry easy (long enough), and just a nice product. I also have the fleece coat product, same thing. They make a good product.

I am very pleased. It is quite comfortable. It exceeded expectations. The vest is no problem for every day / routine wear. Thankfully, I have not personally experienced how well it protects ballistically.
Perfect fit thank you!
