RobustHome Office KR1+SP1 Protection Level
The Fortis Armour – Home Office Certified Aramid Fibre Zip-Front 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.
Aramid_Fibre_IconAramid Fibre, Nylon, Steel Fibre Construction
The Fortis Armour – Home Office Certified Aramid Fibre Zip-Front 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 Cordura, Zip-Front cover.
FlexibleFlexible Soft Armour
The Fortis Armour – Home Office Certified Aramid Fibre Zip-Front 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.
Adjustable_Body_Armour_IconAdjustable Shoulders & Sides plus Removeable Lapels
The Fortis Armour – Home Office Certified Aramid Fibre Zip-Front 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. The armour’s Cordura cover also has lapels across the shoulder straps which can be easily removed should the wearer choose to do so.
Pocket_Icon2 Large Utility Pockets
The Fortis Armour – Home Office Certified Aramid Fibre Zip-Front Stab Vest has two deep, hook and loop(Velcro)-secured utility pockets on the front that can be used to store essential items. They are roughly 14.5cm deep and large enough to hold most mobile phones, notepads and some radios.
Zip_CionCovered Zip for Quick Mobilisation
The Fortis Armour – Home Office Certified Aramid Fibre Zip-Front Stab Vest has a Covered Zip that allows for quick mobilisation with minimal adjustment as you do not need to access the armour through the side straps as one must with tabard vests. The zip is covered by a hook and loop (Velcro) secured, Cordura flap that prevents assailants from trying to interfere with the armour during a confrontation.
Cooling_IconInternal Cooling Mesh & Lumbar Support
The Fortis Armour – Home Office Certified Aramid Fibre Zip-Front Stab Vest has a cooling mesh inner-lining which helps keep the wearer cool in warm weather. There is also a lumbar support strap along the back of the inside of the vest. This can be wrapped and secured around the wearer to make the armour fit more securely.
Made_in_the_UKMade in the United Kingdom
The Fortis Armour – Home Office Certified Aramid Fibre Zip-Front Stab Vest is made by British body armour manufacturer, Fortis, and is produced in and shipped from the United Kingdom.
