    The Shepra

    Very happy with my purchase. I can tell this was a labor of love. The craftsmanship is a masterpiece. And big shout out to the receptionist Lady who kept me updated along the way, she was very professional and nice. Even just wearing the hoodie to go grocery shopping adds an extra feeling of security. Overall, I would buy again and probably will. Cheers.

    A gift to my Martial Arts instructor; I've had 1 myself for 2 years

    Both are IIIa. I thinks he likes it a lot. I certainly love mine. Mine was a special order early in testing time. It is not very heavy, and no one seems to notice it when worn around town. Someone even said while I was wearing it I "looked like I lost weight" - hilarious. Removing the panels to wash the hoodie is easy. So far I haven't been shot, so can't say much else!

    As advertised

    It is comfortable and discreet My only issue is you can’t leave the zipper open on warmer days as it makes the armor visible

    Sherpa Hoodie

    Posted by Kenneth Browne on 3rd Nov 2021

    Shipped very quickly. It's heavy and feels pretty sturdy. Appears to be very well made, with good stitching on the seams. Should last a while. Just a little too warm to wear in this weather right now. Unless you want to use it as a weight vest when you go on your walks!

    Fit well, the suggested sizing worked well with me. The quality appears good. I was surprised at how heavy the Sherpa was, the rating is NIJ 2, so the weight seemed high, but not so much that it is uncomfortable. - Thank you David! If you are looking for something lighter, the Sport is great for that. The Sherpa shell on it's own even without armor is a heavy duty item.

    Very nicely made. A little heavy but hopefully it will do the job of protection

    Quality construction throughout makes this a perfect jacket for wearing in "Not so nice" areas of the city. Excellent!
