Robust Home Office CAST KR1 SP1 Protection Level
The VestGuard Covert Stab Vest is certified to the latest HOSDB CAST standards at a KR1+SP1 level and protects against knives and needles. Due to its soft steel construction, it also protects against blunt force such as punches or blunt weapons with protection given edge to edge for the whole of the armour panel.
Soft Steel Construction Soft Steel Construction
The armour panels are made using a soft steel construction to provide a thin, lightweight and flexible armour and these are held by a lightweight polycotton outer carrier. While not as flexible as aramid vests, the soft steel panels do provide a higher degree of needle protection. The armour panels are also oil and waterproof.
Covert_Body_Armour_Icon Ultra Covert Armour
This discreet body armour is very low profile at 7-9mm thick and weighing in at only 2.1KGs (based on a large size). The cover has thin elasticated Velcro shoulder and waist straps so that the vest does not create lumps under a shirt or jacket and remains invisible.
Adjustable_Body_Armour_Icon Fully Adjustable
The VestGuard Covert Stab Vest cover has 6 low profile elasticated straps, one for each shoulder and two on each side of the waist to give a secure and customised fit. This ensures the armour stays in place and remains comfortable.
Cooling_Icon Coolmax Ventilation Lining
The VestGuard Covert Stab Vest cover is lined with a Coolmax ventilation layer that helps reduce the build up of heat when the armour is worn close to the body. This is particularly important for covert armours as they will generally have several layers of clothing over them.
Comfortable Polycotton Cover
Covert body armour is worn as close to the body as possible to prevent detection which inevitably results in some skin to armour contact. Unlike overt vests which have Cordura covers, the VestGuard Covert Stab Vest uses a light polycotton which causes less irritation and is comfortable enough to be worn for extended periods.
