Robust Home Office KR1 SP1 Protection Level
The VestGuard Zip-Front Stab Vest is certified to the latest HOSDB CAST standards for stab proof body armour 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 heavy-duty Cordura 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.

The VestGuard Zip-Front Stab Vest has an outer cover that is made from heavy-duty Cordura fabric with reinforced edges. The YKK Zip is highly durable while the wide Velcro straps provide a secure and adjustable fit on the waist and shoulders while the wide Velcro straps provide a secure and adjustable fit on the waist and shoulders.

With two vertical zip chest pockets, two bellow pockets, shoulder radio loops and front and rear Velcro for the mounting of badges, the VestGuard Zip Front Stab Vest is well designed for life on the front line. With a weight of 2.74 Kg (size large) and with the armour panels only being 3-5 mm thick, the vest is very practical for daily use. It also comes with a small velcro patch at the front and large velcro patch at the back for badges as standard.
Adjustable_Body_Armour_Icon Fully Adjustable
