Durable Engineered

our Body armor will not be compromised by becoming wet or being exposed to daily wear and tear. Unlike ceramic hard armor on the market, our hard armor can be dropped without concern that the internal structure has been cracked and rendered useless against a threat.

Vitals Protection 

The engineers at Phalanx studied the sizing for armor across numerous manufacturers and users. For the majority of people, armor protecting an area of 10"x12" will shield the vital organs of the chest and abdomen from head-on penetration. Our plates are designed with this in mind, though we do have alternative sizing options available for those who require it.

Designed & Comfort

Body armor only works for those who wear it, so ours is designed to be as comfortable as possible on the job. Lighter than most options on the market, our hard armor is contoured both laterally and horizontally to better conform to the body.

Multi Hit Tested

Our Body armor has been tested to withstand multiple hits without being compromised.
