At EnGarde® we constantly strive towards offering our clients the best possible protection combined with maximum comfort and low weight. Our soft body armor starts with the finest materials available combined with advanced engineering and ergonomics. We produce the lightest, most flexible and comfortable body armor made anywhere. We currently offer five different lines of soft armor featuring our super-light ballistic panels.
The COMFORT™ is the most flexible ballistic package in the EnGarde® soft armor product line. The COMFORT™ is an ideal choice for customers looking for an extremely concealable and comfortable solution.
The MT-PRO™ is a true multi-threat panel that still maintains the comfort and long wear our customers have come to expect.
The FLEX-PRO™ is the lightest ballistic package in the EnGarde® line of soft armor panels. It is an ideal choice for customers looking for an extremely concealable solution with the highest level of protection.
The PRO-PLUS™ features a robust and durable armor design incorporating layers of Dyneema® and combined with the latest Twaron Trauma Reduction Technology.
The TITANSKIN™ series has been developed for customers that need the highest protection against knives and spikes.
Modern soft body armor can be sorted into three classes: Ballistic, Anti-Stab, and Multi-Threat. Body armor manufacturers offer a range ballistic armor that differ by weight, flexibility, thickness, and ballistic characteristics.
When it comes to soft ballistic armor, the most common testing protocol is the NIJ standard. NIJ stands for National Institute of Justice. That organization sets the standards for body armor protection in the United States. Many other nations also use that standard. For soft body armor the most common NIJ protection standards used are Level II and Level IIIA. The higher the number, the greater the level of protection. Level IIIA soft armor will stop more powerful ammunition than Level II.
Although ballistic armor panels offer some degree of anti-stab protection, no one can claim that ballistic armor is stab proof. The fact that our soft ballistic panels contain Dyneema®, gives our ballistic panels a higher stab resistance in comparison with most Aramid-based ballistic panels. Penetrating our soft body armor with an ordinary knife is actually quite a challenge.
For stab threats we have developed the TITANSKIN™ series. This panel offers protection against knives, needles, spikes and icepicks.
For clients that require ballistic protection coupled with stab and needle protection we have developed the MT-PRO™ series. This multi-threat armor integrates innovative fabrics such as Dyneema® with TITANSKIN™anti-stab technology. The combination produces a vest that is both light and thin, yet surprisingly tough.
All our soft armor panels, such as COMFORT™, MT-PRO™, FLEX-PRO™, PRO-PLUS™, and TITANSKIN™, can be combined with our concealable, tactical and specialist carrier systems, including DELUXE™, DUAL USE™, PATROL™ and others.
Soft armor is light and flexible, providing protection against most handgun rounds. Any of our qualified vendors and sales representatives would be happy to assist you in configuring our soft armor products for any threat environment.
