Introducing the most flexible IIIA armor ever created.

The Operator was designed from the ground up for plain clothes and undercover work. It is the most covert armor package available.

The system is made of a heavy-weight, moisture wicking and breathable 4-way spandex. On the side of the system is a zipper that does not split the carrier in half. The carrier is pulled over the head and then zipped down, snugging the system up to the body.

12"x16" IIIA Ultralight armor panels cover both the front and back, and are easily removed through zippered pockets for washing when necessary.




Protection against .22LR, .380, 9MM, .40, .45 ACP, .357 and .44 Magnum - up to 1430fps.

Slash and Stab resistant.

Front and Back 12"x16" panels cover all vital organs.

Zero Panel Printing Design.

100% Polyester poplin panel outer for exceptional skin to fabric contact.

600D Coated Nylon inner cover for complete water and UV resistance.


5 Year manufacturer warranty on all ballistic panels.

 We offer a 30 day free size exchange program. "Please check the sizing chart carefully and measure yourself before ordering.

    Perfect alternative to the safariland my job gave

    Posted by Emily Wilson on 19th Jun 2024

    My safariland vest is a bulky mess and never really fit me that well. I came into the Lakewood location and they custom cut me armor on the spot. I'm so happy I can't even explain I wish I had this years ago.

    Exactly what I needed for my job

    The Operator is a solid piece of gear. It's well-made and the protection is excellent. I wear it daily and it's held up great

    Highly Recommend

    This shirt is an absolute game-changer. The level of protection it offers is second to none and it is surprisingly comfortable to wear for extended periods. I was a bit skeptical at first, but after wearing it for a week, I'm convinced I made a great decision. Highly recommend for anyone needing armor that isn't obvious

    I am blown away

    Posted by Davis on 19th Jun 2024

    I originally bought a shirt from national body armor. What a piece of crap. It had these tiny plates that were like half an inch thick. This shirt is infinitely better in every possible way. The armor is like a quarter of what the other one was and nearly twice the coverage. I wore it out to dinner with my brother and his family and no one had a clue, I just wore it under my regular button down. I'm giving it 5 stars all the way.

    2nd time even better

    I have the urban as well. They've really upped their game. Left the day I ordered it and was at my house the next day. I'm only a few hours away from them but still.

    Dallas and Dan are the best.

    Posted by Mason on 17th Jun 2024

    From the moment I placed my order for the Operator undershirt, the experience was seamless. The product arrived quickly and the follow up from Dan was great.

    Best armor I own.

    Posted by Brian on 17th Jun 2024

    Not only does it provide the level of covert(ness?)I wanted that nothing else gave me, but the customer service was top notch.
