Safariland has released the HP01F Type II female model in the ABA Xtreme Series of concealable armor.
The vest satisfies the requirements of the National Institute of Justice's (NIJ) Voluntary Body Armor Compliance Testing Program under NIJ Standard-0101.06 (NIJ-06).
With the previous release of the XT01F Type II, the HP01F Type II is the second NIJ-06 compliant, female armor model to be added to this brand. Tested against the 9mm and .357 Magnum NIJ-designated rounds, the HP01F Type II is a hybrid, female semi-structured design that incorporates covered dart technology, vertical and horizontal Geometric technology, and state-of-the-art materials such as Curv (framing) and Dyneema. The HP01F Type II provides increased trauma protection and exceptional ballistic performance.
"We are excited about the opportunity for the ABA brand to provide female specific designs that offer reliable performance and enhanced comfort to women in the law enforcement community," according to Tim O'Brien, Safariland's director of concealable armor.
All Safariland concealable armor models are certified using NIJ approved size templates C1 and C5, which offer law enforcement the widest range of production sizes available. In addition to these models, Safariland offers an array of concealable and tactical products, which are available and posted to the NIJ Compliant Products List (CPL).
