Back in January we announced that Armor Express had developed two new body armor panels, the Razor™ and the Vortex™. Both have passed the NIJ testing and the Razor™ is now for sale at On Duty Gear. The Razor™ uses a new process to create an armor panel that is not only thinner and lighter than previous designs, but also costs less! This one has us excited! We will be adding the Vortex, along with Armor Express’ new ultra-thin Ara-Shock™ ICW armor plate later this week.
Razor™, the latest breakthrough in armor technology, is Armor Express’s lightest weight and thinnest body armor system ever! Based on innovative fabric technologies from Dupont® and DSM®, the Razor™ sets the mark for comfort and performance. The Razor™ is made from a proprietary blend of cutting edge Kevlar® and Dyneema® fabrics stitched together utilizing Armor Express’ Comfort Craft manufacturing process.
