We make our vests with only the finest ballistic materials available, such as DSM Dyneema®, Kevlar® XP™, Pro-Systems Artec® and Teijin Twaron®. With these high tech materials we can produce bulletproof vests that are extremely tough, yet light and flexible. Choose from our three top NIJ Level IIIA ballistic packages or a lighter NIJ Level II package.

Lightweight and high performance

The ENGARDEII-ULTRA™ is the newest, lightest and most versatile ballistic package we offer. The full-wrap design starts with 100 percent Dyneema® panels for superior comfort combined with the very best in ballistic protection. In tests the ENGARDEII-ULTRA™ exceeded NIJ 0101.04 Level II. The rugged design and durability of the Dyneema® ULTRA™ series is backed by a ten year warranty on ballistic protection.

Multi-threat protection from bullets, knives and needles

The ENGARDEIIIA-MT-PRO™ is one of the most sophisticated and versatile ballistic products on the market today. This dual-purpose armor provides superior ballistic protection coupled with stab and needle protection. The improved design integrates innovative fabrics such as DSM Dyneema® with TitanSkin™ anti-stab technology, resulting in a vest that is both light and thin, yet surprisingly tough.

True Multi-Threat Protection
Along with the superior engineering we put our MT-PRO™ through the most exhaustive testing program ever created for a ballistic vest. Normally NIJ Level IIIA vests are tested with only two types of ammunition, but we tested our MT-PRO™ with no less than eight different types of ammunition and went the extra step to include edge shots (35mm from edge) and close groups (35mm groups). The MT-PRO™ is officially certified to stop the HOSDB P1 Blade at 15 Joules (<20mm) and a hypodermic needle at 5 Joules (VPAM KDIW 2004). The MT-PRO™ is a true multi-threat panel.
