    I love my new armored sweater! The quality is amazing as well as the fit - although I would recommend going one size up for maximum comfort and fit as the sizing chart is a bit off. I will most definitely be purchasing more products in the near future!

    The Urban is a Must Have

    Posted by Will on 27th Dec 2021

    When you get your CWC permit you begin to walk around with a certain level of assurance. You know that if SHTF you'll be prepared and ready to go. That feeling is magnified once you start wearing concealable body armor. I own a few plate carriers and while they are great, they are totally impractical when going out and doing daily errands. I've wanted to get some concealable, soft body armor for some time now. Whenever I came across The Urban and, I knew that I found what I was looking for. The hoodie itself is very comfortable and soft. The soft body armor is the perfect weight especially for the fall and cooler months. It doesn't profile too much and a person would really have to be looking hard to spot it. I'm 5'11" and weigh around 160lbs. I ordered the size Medium and it fit perfectly. I generally wear a Large when it comes to my coats and jackets but I knew I'd be wearing this without an undershirt so a Medium fit great. A Large may be appropriate if you were going to wear a t-shirt or long sleeve shirt underneath this but I was worried that it may bunch up. I also imagine it wouldn't be ideal to get soft body armor that was loose or could shift around so I'd recommend following the sizing instructions on the website. Overall, I am completely 100% satisfied with my purchase. As I said, it's great to have a CWC permit and have a sidearm on hand. The only thing that tops that is wearing a nice, concealable bullet proof hoodie and carrying a sidearm!

    The Urban

    Posted by Ed on 25th Dec 2021

    I can’t give it a 5 star review yet because I honestly don’t know if it works as advertised. The flexible plates feel very sturdy and well made, so I’m almost confident it’ll do the job. The hoodie itself seems well made,. I would suggest buying a bigger size because the plates make the hoodie feel very tight against your body, but I guess that what you really should want. It depends how you want it to feel. It arrived in like 2 weeks after purchase so I guess that is ok. Overall I’m happy with the purchase at this time. Will probably order a few more items in the future.

    Its quite comfy

    Posted by Unknown on 14th Dec 2021

    Bought it purely out of want. The hoodie is nice and soft, while the armor is unrestrictive - it feels like a 5lb weight vest, so not unnoticable, but not uncomfortable. Dinging one star due to the stitching on the left sleeve armpit splitting down the sleeve, which I noticed after the 3rd wearing (not washed, light use). It's an easy enough fix that I'm just going to fix it, but I can't tell if it's from figuring out how to put it on (like a turtle) or if messed up a stitch. Either way, figured it best to point it out. ----- Come back and put your name in so we know who you are! We'll fix any quality issues immediately. - BPE Customer Service
