Trusted Rifle Round Protection
The EnGarde Patrol™ Series offers personnel who require extra protection from high-velocity rounds. It’s a very basic, yet versatile tactical model that doesn’t have many of the additional features provided on our premium tactical models, yet the Patrol™ Series won’t compromise safety. Although this model may be more of a commodity, you can be completely confident in its quality and reliability.
The Patrol™ comes with two handy external pockets to hold removable solid armor plates. The solid armor inserts offer maximum protection from rifle fire as well as improved protection against blunt trauma. The plates continue to protect the user after he or she has been hit, allowing them to continue fighting.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Due to government regulations we are not allowed to sell and ship NIJ Level IV ICW hard armor panels together with ballistic vests. These products need to be ordered separately (two payments) at our website and will always be shipped separately.
|MIDDLE CIRCUMFERENCE (A)||CHEST HEIGHT (B)|
HOW TO DETERMINE YOUR VEST SIZE?
First measure your middle circumference (A) across your belly button.
Then check the chart what size you would require.
You can either choose for a Full-Wrap solution (front and back panels close, just touching on the side) of for an Overlap solution (front and back panels have around 2” overlap).
The Overlap choice is recommended for maximum protection.
Now measure your chest height (B), top of your breastbone to top of your belly button and see if it matches with the vest size you determined during in step 2.
In case your chest height is less or more than the chest height in the table you can either choose to go up or down one size. Your preference for the side coverage (Full-Wrap or Overlap) should be leading for your final size choice.
Available ballistic packages
Our thin and highly durable ULTRA™ panels have been one of our top selling items for many years. The ULTRA™ is made of layer after layer of Dyneema® and state-of-the-art Trauma Reduction Technology. This panel has been tested rigorously against the industry’s NIJ .04 Level IIIA standard of performance.
EnGarde® successfully had the ULTRA-IIIA panel certified to the ballistic stipulations of German Schutzklasse 1 TR03/2008, including the 0-meter (contact shot) tests. The panel was also tested for stopping a hypodermic needle at 2.5 Joules, according to VPAM KDIW 2004. EnGarde® can offer a 10-year warranty for the ballistic performance of the ULTRA™ series due to its extreme durability.
Our MT-PRO™ panel offers a new type of performance and protection with its stab protection abilities. This is a true multi-threat type of protection while still keeping its high standards of comfort that our customers expect and deserve. Our MT-PRO™ not only meets the rigorous performance standards of NIJ .04 Level IIIA, but we went the extra mile and had the MT-PRO™ tested for stopping bullets from eight distinct types of ammunition. Our MT-PRO™ provides topnotch performance from shots fired close to the edge.
By integrating DSM Dyneema® fabrics with our proven TitanSkin™ technology for preventing stab wounds, we could now develop a panel with both premium ballistic protection as well as stab protection. Our MT-PRO™ is among a very few products that can stop the HOSDB P1 Blade at 15 Joules (<20mm) and a hypodermic needle at 5 Joules, according to VPAM KDIW 2004.
