EnGarde is excited to announce our T-SHIRT™ style carrier system, the most stylish and concealable body armor we’ve ever produced.
Clients asked us for a carrier system that provided maximum concealment for undercover operations. Our popular DELUXE™ model already set the standard for concealable armor but customers wanted an even slimmer carrier system that could be worn without any type of undergarment.
“The goal was to develop a carrier that really looks and feels like a T-shirt, while providing the same high level of ballistic protection as our other body armor products,” says Iwan Luiten, Marketing Manager at EnGarde.
While most of EnGarde’s clients are military or law enforcement agencies, the T-SHIRT™ has drawn a lot of interest from the civilian market as well. Private security especially appreciates the more casual profile.
While the T-SHIRT™ carrier may be compatible with all our ballistic panels, we recommend the FLEX-PRO™ panel as the most ideal pairing. That soft armor combination weighs just 1.9 kg (4.2 lbs) while still providing NIJ Level IIIA threat protection. The knitted Coolmax® Fresh fabric of the T-SHIRT™ not only keeps the armor snug against the torso, it keeps the wearer cool and dry with advanced moisture wicking capability.
2018 has been an exciting year for EnGarde. We’ve already launched two new concealable carrier systems and, later this year, we’ll roll out two new modular tactical carriers to update our current Leopard™ and Panther™ models.
“Over the last decade we’ve seen the demand for personal protection and body armor ramp up as security concerns escalate around the globe,” says Luiten. “Advanced engineering and new materials have lowered the weight of personal body armor while improving the comfort and ballistic performance.”
