Our stab protection vest utilise a patent pending manufacturing technology which makes our stab-protection garments innovative and unique throughout the world providing stab and slash protection in one product, unlike some manufacturers in the market today that use a non flexible plate design that affords  very little flexibility for bending, or side flexion of the trunk, which becomes very uncomfortable in particular where task may involve twisting, bending or activities requiring side torsion flexibility, as well as affording little to no breathability. You can also sit down wearing our vest, but try sitting down with the non flexible options offered by other manufacturers! Some of our competitors vest are made for U.K. conditions and our Australian climate has not been taken into consideration. Our material is lightweight, flexible and has a patented design that allows air to enter and heat to escape from the material easier. This is a patented design not offered by any other stab protection company in the world!

Our customers feedback on the non flexible options offered by other manufacturers speaks for itself by way of changing to our products. Ours offer flexibility, and breathability which is what you want when you are  wearing a vest for a full shift!

*Note: Level 1 & 2 does offer some blunt force trauma protection but its main function is for stab protection. We recommend level 3 if you want maximum Stab & blunt force trauma protection.

The outer fabric of the vest is very durable. This makes it particularly suited for law  enforcement and also ideal for outdoor use.

The technology used to make our stab protection vests and other stab-proof garments is innovative and unique throughout the world. After many years of intensive research, we have succeeded in manufacturing a textile composite that is safe, light and flexible at the same time. Our tactical stab-proof vest weigh only approx. 1.4 kg, for example. The protective layer is made of a high-strength aramid fabric to which a special plastic is inseparably applied. The combination of high strength fibres and the energy absorbing plastic create a material of which its specific properties even exceed those of stainless steel plates. 

The weight is approx. 4.5 times lower than that of a comparably thick stainless steel plate. We have taken the armadillo as a model to ensure flexibility and breath-ability. Just like this armoured mammal, we make use of an overlapping scaly structure. However, our scaly structure differs from that of other suppliers in that it is not possible to push it apart. This allows us to achieve a high degree of safety in   combination with maximum flexibility.
