First Responder Tactical Body Armor
The plate carrier for the T.R.U.S.T.™ or Tactical Response Under Special Threats model is designed for ballistic protection against rifle threats. The T.R.U.S.T.™Series is designed specifically for first responder events and active-shooter incidents.
The full MOLLE Webbing Platform on the carrier’s front and back provides for customization. It comes with adjustable side straps with buckles that allow the wearer to quickly gear up and remove. Pockets on the front and back hold 10”x 12” armor plates. On this model we offer Level IIIA soft armor panels as well as Level III and Level IV solid armor plates.
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.

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.
