Legal Conditions of Sale

It is the SOLE responsibility of the purchaser to ensure that all transactions conform to U.S. and Federal, State and Local Statutes, Codes, and Ordinances.

 

We Sell ONLY to Law-Abiding Adults

 

Body Armor is a purely defensive item but, regardless, we are very sensitive to the possibility of vests being misused by criminals. By buying a vest from us, you certify that you are law-abiding, of adult age, and have no felony convictions. We do not sell to felons or minors, and it is against the law for a felon to possess Body Armor under both federal law (unless required by your employer, see, Sec. 931) and is also illegal under state law in many states.

We cooperate with law enforcement to stop the use of vests by criminals.

If you have any criminal purpose in mind (or resell your armor to a criminal) you do NOT want to have bought Body Armor from us!

We reserve the right to refuse to sell to anyone, in our sole discretion. By buying body armor you guarantee that you are not legally prohibited from owning firearms, or body armor, and also that you are not associated with any criminal group, in any way, and have only a lawful purpose for owning body armor.


WARNING: U.S. EXPORT CONTROL LAWS

 

Level III and IV armor falls under the jurisdiction of the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR), and is subject to the export control laws of the U.S. Government.

Export or retransfer of Rifle Plates by any means to any foreign end user, or for any other end use, whether in the U.S. or abroad, without the written approval of the U.S. Department of State, is prohibited.

There is a possible exemption for a U.S. person taking their personal protection with them in their luggage, and returning the armor to the US, for the requirements, click here.

Level III-A, Level II, and Level II-A VESTS may have an export license exemption for friendly countries, but require a license to some countries from the Bureau of Industry & Security (BIS).

Kevlar Helmets, Shields, Riot Shields, Faceshields and other sensitive items generally require an export license from the BIS.


Residents of Connecticut are prohibited from buying Body Armor unless the sale is face to face (or unless the buyer is a police officer, Police Department, or military).

We cannot ship to residents of Connecticut who are not police or military.


NO Armor is 100% Bulletproof

A 'bulletproof' vest or other armor will protect you from the vast majority of pistol ballistic threats you are ever likely to face. But there is always a tradeoff between more protection and more wearability (and the constraint to stay within your budget). Please know that:

 

  • rifle rounds
  • unusual high velocity pistol ammunition
  • pistol ammo fired from a rifle barrel
  • armor piercing ammunition
  • sharp-edged or pointed instruments (e.g., knives, icepicks, etc.), and/or
  • other unusual ammunition or situations...

CAN defeat body armor.

Also, at some angles projectiles can slide, or deflect off the edges of Armor, or ricochet. Furthermore, projectiles that are successfully stopped by armor will always produce some level of injury, resulting in severe bruising, broken bones, and possibly serious internal injury or even death. Soft body armor defeats most pistol and shotgun projectiles, but NO vest on earth makes you invulnerable to all threats. To state the obvious, getting shot ALWAYS carries some risk.

Be aware that your head is much more susceptible to blunt trauma than your body. ANY impact of a bullet on a helmet WILL CAUSE INJURY AND CAN CAUSE DEATH. You put the odds more in your favor with head protection, but, just as with ANY armor, no guarantee of invulnerability can be made.

By buying Armor you assume ALL risks of use or misuse, and agree not to hold us liable in any way. In addition, YOU are responsible to ensure that your ballistic panels are positioned inner side IN, and outer side OUT if applicable (check the inside vest panel label).
