|Home Office KR1 + SP1 Protection Level |
The Fortis Armour Home Office Certified Covert Stab Vest is certified under the Home Office’s HOSDB 2003 standard for stab resistant body armour to a KR1 +SP1 level. While nothing is 100% stab proof, it does offer a high level of protection against slash and spike attacks which protects the user against most common sharp offensive tools such as knives, screw drivers, glass and more. Unlike the US’ NIJ standard, the Home Office Standard puts a greater emphasis on back-face trauma which is the kinetic force and its’ effect on internal organs rather than just whether the object penetrates the armour.
|Covert Body Armour |
This Covert Body Armour is designed to be worn under one’s clothing. It uses a tight cut with thinner straps to avoid detection. The outer cover is made from a soft yet tough, white polycotton. This means that it is less coarse and causes less irritation when worn against the skin that Cordura or nylon covers.
|Aramid Fibre, Nylon, Steel Fibre Construction |
The Fortis Armour Home Office Certified Covert Stab Vest panels are constructed with multiple layers of Aramid Fibre (more commonly known as Kevlar), Nylon and Steel Cord tightly bound and sealed in a tough Nylon binding. The panels are carried by a comfortable, polycotton, covert cover.
|Flexible Soft Armour |
The Fortis Armour Home Office Certified Covert Stab Vest does not use plates or metal sheets. This means that it is far more flexible than commonly available hard-armours. By using flexible panels, this Armour does not restrict motion or greatly reduce mobility. This level of flexibility is essential for concealed body armour as it allows the vest to go undetected.
|Adjustable Shoulders |
The Fortis Armour Home Office Certified Covert Stab Vest has hook and loop(Velcro) secured adjustable shoulders and sides. This means that the armour can be made to fit as tightly or loosely as the wearer requires.
|Internal Cooling Mesh |
The Fortis Armour Home Office Certified Covert Stab Vest Covert Stab Vest has cooling mesh lining on the inside which helps keep the wearer cool in warm weather which is particularly important for concealed body armour worn close to the body.
|Made in the United Kingdom |
The Fortis Armour Home Office Certified Covert Stab Vest is made by British body armour manufacturer, Fortis, and is produced in and shipped from the United Kingdom.
