Nice fit

It’s actually comfortable to ware which was a surprise. I e spent quite a long time in plate, and this is ok once you have fitted it. It’s longer than I would have liked and I went for a short, so a better fit for the taller person. It only just clears my belt kit, but then it’s a bit higher than I would have liked half the weight of the cheaper version, so spend the extra cash

HOW DO I CHOOSE THE RIGHT PROTECTION LEVEL?
Choosing the correct protection level depends on the work you are doing. There are several different levels of protection and each level refers to the ballistic threat, edged blade threat, and/or the spike threat that they can protect you against. It is vitally important that you purchase the correct threat level for your needs to get the maximum levels of protection. Read more about the various levels of protection, here.
IS IT LEGAL TO OWN BODY ARMOUR?
Many countries have restrictions around body and where it can be bought and sold however in most countries it is legal to own body armour. In the United Kingdom, there are currently no legal restrictions on the purchase and ownership of body armour. You can read an overview of the different breakdowns on our blog.

Nice fit

It’s actually comfortable to ware which was a surprise. I e spent quite a long time in plate, and this is ok once you have fitted it. It’s longer than I would have liked and I went for a short, so a better fit for the taller person. It only just clears my belt kit, but then it’s a bit higher than I would have liked half the weight of the cheaper version, so spend the extra cash
