CPE Pro Diamond vest, NIJ IIIA
Protect your torso against accidental and violent threats with this C.P.E. vest made for demanding professional use! Designed for covert wear under your regular clothes.
The C.P.E. Diamond NIJ IIIA weighs only 1.8 kg (3.97 lbs) in size Large. The panels are less than 5 mm thick (0.2"), yet offers excellent multiple hits protection and hits close to the edge of the panel. Each protective layer is separately laminated for improved hygiene and moisture protection. The panel offers the best possible protection with minimal trauma.
The protective panels are stiff and stand upright on their own. The initial feeling is slightly cumbersome, but the vest adapts to the wearer soon after donning it. With a well-protected body, the mind is at ease and the user can focus on the task at hand.
