Body Armor Direct, the number one online direct-to-consumer retailer of government certified body armour has announced a new initiative to replace over 100,000 non-government certified ballistic vests currently in use across US by law enforcement, security personnel and others. Body Armor Direct’s armours are certified by National Institute of Justice.
“Our factory is subject to the compliance test programme. This allows the government to inspect and test our body armour vests at an independent ballistic laboratory to ensure they continue to perform as expected. Whereas non-government certified compliant body armour has no formal oversight,” said Dave Goldberg, chief executive officer, Body Armor Direct in a press release by the company. “Our team is working to educate consumers on the benefits of certified vests by the National Institute of Justice vs non certified compliant body armour vests.”

It offers standard products in standard sizes and all products are Made in US. Customers include the federal government, state and local agencies, corrections, private security companies, schools, churches, hospitals, hotels, lawyers, doctors, athletes, celebrities, businesses and the general public nationwide.
