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

Body Armor is illegal if you have been convicted of a violent felony.
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.

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, Backpack™ 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 vests to Connecticut.
