Safariland Adds Female Model to ABA Xtreme Armor Line

December 08, 2010  | 

Safariland has released the XT01F Type II female model to its ABA Xtreme Series of concealable armor, according to the company.

The model satisfies the requirements of the National Institute of Justice's (NIJ) new Voluntary Body Armor Compliance Testing Program under NIJ Standard-0101.06 (NIJ-06), according to Safariland.

As the first NIJ-06 female armor to be added to this brand, the XT01F Type II was tested against 9mm and .357 Magnum rounds.

The XT01F Type II is a hybrid, female semi-structured design that incorporates covered dart technology and Honeywell's Gold Shield material.

"The XT01F gives us yet another exceptional female design that adds to our existing family of armor solutions," according to Tim O'Brien, Safariland's concealable armor product manager. "The package provides enhanced coverage while also offering the performance and comfort many female officers desire."

The NIJ introduced the "Ballistic Resistance of Body Armor NIJ Standard-0101.06" to establish minimum performance requirements and test methods for the ballistic resistance of personal body armor.

According to the new NIJ-06 standard, body armor must now be able to defend against increased velocities of ammunition calibers to better reflect current street threats and law enforcement duty weapons.
