    The BDU Armor Skin fits extremly comfortably and molds perfectly to my ballistics vest and so far the material has proven to be durable.

  15. Good entry level vest review by Brian on 6/18/2017
    Rating

    When compared to wearing a standard shirt or non load bearing vest this vest is a big step up. However it falls short of being a high functioning load bearing vest. The biggest problem with the vest is that it has a very limited amount of molly on the front. This significantly limits the amount of things that can be attached to the vest.

    Great compromise for those that have admin that do not like molle carriers. It still looks very professional. I have had coworkers not realize the gear was now on the vest.

    I wore the vest for approximately 10 days. It was nice being able to take the vest off and write reports. One thing I didn't like about the vest is you still have to use your armor straps and strap the vest together. My back armor panel would cause the vest to flip up in the back exposing the zipper that secures my armor panel regardless of how ma...Read More

    The Blauer Armorskin system is a must have in law enforcement. With more and more tools and gadgets that we need on our belts, the Armorskin system with suspenders allows you to distribute the weight of your belt, as well as remove the vest when needed to air out and rest.

    Each summer day, I dreaded putting the vest on under my uniform shirt. It's hot and sweaty and you have no way to cool down throughout the day. With Armorskin, the minute I returned to my patrol car, I unzipped the side and my core was immediately cooled in the air conditioning. Great alternative to the normal uniform.

    I love the product. It is very easy to put on and take off and also easy to keep clean and maintained. Very good product!

    The Armorskin fills a hole in our uniform inventory. We have certain divisions that had a need for a product like this. This is the first one we've found that works with the extisting vest carrier and panels. As usual, Blauer has hit a home run with this product!
