Dedicated to protecting the lives of those who put themselves on the line protecting the rights of others.

Our customers include law enforcement, private security, military personnel, non-profit organizations like Doctors Without Borders, journalists and individuals from a variety of industries working in dangerous areas. Those choosing our products are trusting us with more than their business; they trust us with their lives.

Edgar Stek and Iwan Luiten co-founded the company in 2003 and continue to manage day-to-day operations. Our body armor starts with finest materials available from around the world. We then combine those best in class bullet-stopping materials with superior engineering and ergonomics to make our vests the most comfortable for long-wear situations, even in the hottest climates!

EnGarde® is based in the Netherlands, a small country that plays a big role in the body armor industry. It’s no coincidence that the world’s best and most innovative ballistic materials, such as DSM Dyneema® and Teijin Aramid, are manufactured right here. Our core mission is making ballistic vests with unparalleled stopping power to save lives. This is what our clients and their families deserve and rely on us to provide. In addition, we take a personal approach to customer service with quick, easy and open lines of communication.

At EnGarde® we’ve got your back.
