Body armor is legal in all 50 states with ONLY the following three restrictions:

  1. Body Armor is illegal if you have been convicted of a violent felony.
  2. Body armor may not be shipped to a civilian in Connecticut. Body armor purchases in Connecticut are not allowed by Connecticut state regulations to occur over the internet; they MUST be made only through an in-person store purchase.
  3. Wearing body armor while committing a crime will increase penalties greatly. Body armor was not designed for nor intended for criminals!

You can purchase your DefendAPack Vest and Plates online and take delivery in 49 of the 50 states. The one exception is Connecticut, which requires that you buy a bulletproof vest in person, not online for delivery. You can still own a bulletproof vest if you live in Connecticut, we just cannot ship armored plates or vests to Connecticut.
