Armor Express showed four new ballistic vests at this year’s SHOT Show: the Bulldog, Hardcore SU, Revolution Plus, and Seraph Gen 2.
• Bulldog: Designed for correction and special operations units, the Bulldog accommodates Level III ICW hard armor rifle plates. Features include: bottom loading rifle plate pockets, a dynamic cummerbund for added comfort and mobility, over-the-shoulder ballistic protection, fully adjustable shoulders and waist, MOLLE webbing, “Man Down” cable attachment point for hands-free extraction, and a reinforced 1-inch rear carry handle.
• Hardcore SU: The Hardcore SU is Armor Express’ new vest for first responder and undercover operators who may need to add ballistic protection for raids and critical incidents. Features include: a dynamic cummerbund for comfort, 3D spacer mesh inner liner shell material for heat and moisture dissipation, improved shoulder strap geometry for better ergonomics, lightweight architecture, fully adjustable shoulders and waist, concealable cut panels for higher mobility, MOLLE for modularity and attachments.
Revolution Plus: Scent-Lok activated carbon makes the Revolution Plus one of the most odor absorbent armor carriers on the market. Features include: Breath-O-Prene shoulder padding for comfort, high denier microfiber twill fabric construction for durability, micro-fiber wear-strip along waist to minimize the effects of abrasion, and fully adjustable shoulders and vest.
Seraph Gen 2: The Seraph Gen 2 is a concealable vest for patrol duty. Available in NIJ Level II and Level IIIA, the Seraph Gen 2 features low-profile construction and a light build. Armor Express says the Seraph Gen 2 in both Level II and Level IIIA has been tested with a variety of special threat rounds, including the 5.7 x 28mm, the .44 Magnum, and the 12-gauge slug.
