Tactical Body Armor

At EnGarde we specialize in tactical body armor for military and tactical law enforcement personnel demanding the highest level of protection. To meet the challenge of a constantly evolving threat environment, we have developed the EnGarde Patrol, the EnGarde Leopard and the EnGarde Panther lines of tactical body armor. These ballistic vests use the latest in high-tech materials to deliver maximum, uncompromising protection. Designed specifically to meet the threat from assault rifles and armor piercing ammunition, a larger body coverage area is a key feature of these tactical body armor models.



EnGarde Patrol

Our EnGarde Patrol vest is an ideal tactical body armor choice for personnel who occasionally need increased protection against high velocity rounds or machine gun threats.

The EnGarde Patrol has two convenient external pockets which accommodate removable hard armor plates. The hard armor inserts provide maximum protection against rifle fire and improved blunt trauma protection. The plates also protect the user's ability to stay in the fight after taking a hit. The new, removable SMART™ side strap system provides maximum flexibility.

At EnGarde we use the very latest in advanced materials in the construction of our tactical body armor. We start with ballistic panels made with high tech fibers made of DSM Dyneema that are 15 times stronger than steel. We combine those light but strong ballistic panels with a durable outer shell that will wear well for years.

Tactical body armor
