Today, one out of every five police officers — along with tens of thousands of firefighters and EMTs — trust Armor Express® with their safety. And now, you can have that dependable protection for yourself with the Ballistic Armor Guard (B.A.G.) Panel. Available in two sizes, the B.A.G. fits neatly in the Armor Express Covert Cover Pack (item 702029), QRF Ruck Backpack (item 702030) — or a backpack or shoulder bag you own — offering Level 2 protection that goes where you go. And because it's thin and easily concealed, you're the only one who'll know it's there. At work, at school, anywhere you go — you can rest a little easier knowing you have discreet, effective protection from common handgun rounds.
In 1971, Richard Davis — co-founder of Armor Express — invented soft body armor. To sell it, he did the unthinkable: he shot himself in the chest with a .44 Magnum revolver. It worked, and police officers nationwide bought his armor. Now, the materials and technology have come a long way since the early 70s, but current Armor Express CEO Matt Davis sells it the same way his father did. They trust their product. And they want LEOs, firefighters, security forces, and EMS techs to trust it, too.
