    The carrier has been a blessing. I purchased it for my husband who is in law enforcement as well. Vests aren't made for comfort but this has made it at least tolerable.

  18. Very nice carrier review by Adam F. on 1/20/2016
    Rating

    I have worn both the older style, original skin and the new style. The new style is a vast improvement. The ballistic panels are much easier to load with the bottom zippers, especially since I have trauma plates in my vest. The side zippers are heavy duty and don't sneak open like my first carrier. Overall, I like this system a lot.

    Rating

    I am so happy I finally tried an external vest carrier. So much more comfortable then wearing under the uniform shirt. Will be getting another come tax time. The only issue I've found is that I should have gotten a medium/short instead of a med/regular, but that's my fault, not Blauer's. Still, it fits well enough that I haven't stopped wearing it...Read More

    So I've always wanted to get the Armorskin when I started seeing them being used around where I worked. However, at the time, the department I worked for didn't allow us to. As time passed and more agencies starting to do it more, my department decided to jump on it. I enjoy if very much and it really does feel comfortable compared to having the v...Read More

    This is a great product. It makes wearing my body armor much more comfortable. Shipping was fast. The only downside is the front shirt pockets are too small. My iPhone 6 doesn't fit in the pocket.

    I recently purchased the armorskin under shirts and outer carrier at the recommendation of a coworker. The material is great, and matches the uniform perfectly. But more importantly the shirts are extremely comfortable and breath great. I highly recommend the armorskin line.

    I've been in Law Enforcement for over 20 years and the Wool Blend exterior body armor carrier is the most comfortable to wear and it's easy to put on and take off. The side zippers conceal that it is an external carrier and helps it to blend in with my uniform shirt. It's also easy to install and remove your ballistic panels for cleaning.

    If your going to buy an outside carrier for your vest and you work in cold climates, buy one made with wool. The another armorskin selection does not last as last as long and fades more much easily. The wool one is thicker and holds its shape better.
