Overt (Over Shirt) Body Armour. Government and Security Styles

Overt armour is worn over clothes and is clearly recognised as a deterrent to assailants. It is generally more comfortable than covert styles, and is the preferred option for police & security officers.
It is also a superior method of protection when the risk is deemed intermittent rather than constant. Many body armour wearers may only be a risk at certain times during their working shift. The ability to remove it easily whist driving, dining or during office duties makes the overt option more desirable than coverts in most instances.

Before we do this, we will forward an acrobat file for you to print showing the design for your approval.

Body Armour being used by different departments just needs a change of badge rather than buying a new set.

We can take your designs and have have badges made like the samples shown right to make your body armour truly professional in appearance.
