Fantastic Vest

This vest is just what I needed. I went for this as I came across Safeguard thanks to a friend at work and everything he said was right. The vest I had previous to this really restricted my movement which was a big problem to me. This vest is very flexible and a lot more suitable for me which helps in so many ways when coming into contact with dangerous situations day to day.

Perfect fit

Got this vest for work. Over the moon. The vest is lightweight and the adjustable straps are ideal for fitting the vest to my torso. The vest came the day after I bought it which was a bonus.

Bought as a Gift

My husband had been complaining about his vest for a long time so I decided to by him a new one, I rang Safeguard and the customer service team was very helpful, they helped me choose this vest. My husband was over the moon, he hasn't complained once about his new vest and loves how lightweight the vest is and the breath ability it offers.
