Had two separate orders first order was backpack in vest tryed to reach out to customer service. Never got back with me. Had to buy a separate vest. even tried to reach out to the owner. No one never got back with me.
I ordered one vest as a trial fit and subsequently ordered several more for our family. It's very easy to to put on, the armor is lightweight and thus more conducive to be used.
Well pleased, especially the low price. Vest appears to be well made. Only suggestion is to darken or camo the logo. The white logo makes a good target.
It would be nice to have some mesh ventilation, but I guess you have to sacrifice comfort for safety.
Long, long ago I had many challenges to face and thru the years learned that I had to face many things but as age overcame me I knew I had to take steps to protect me and my wife. I was a LEO and a training officer in my last days and knew that the police can't be there 24/7 so one must take steps to protect yourself. At over 80 with a wife who is on oxygen 24/7 we were a soft target but I will not allow that thanks to your affordable best. For many years I worked and did my job without a vest but now I could thanks to you product and price, thank you.
Vest fits well and is not heavy or cumbersome.
