ArmorSkin is the first ballistic vest cover system for law enforcement that provides relief from the heat and discomfort of conventional carriers, maintains a uniform look, and helps to alleviate lower back and hip pain. The system consists of the ArmorSkin vest, which covers your existing carrier, a StreetShirt – our performance uniform shirt – worn as a base-layer or as an alternate uniform shirt, and an optional duty belt suspension system integrated into the vest.

What is the Blauer ArmorSkin?

Blauer ArmorSkin

The ArmorSkin system is composed of the ArmorSkin vest, a performance uniform StreetShirt and an optional duty belt suspension system. When worn together, the ArmorSkin / StreetShirt combination is designed to look just like a uniform shirt. By integrating the uniform shirt and body armor it allows for a better ventilated and more comfortable option than wearing a carrier underneath your uniform. It also allows you to remove your armor while still wearing the StreetShirt.

  • Your existing carrier fits inside the ArmorSkin vest. The ArmorSkin features easy shoulder and side adjustments for a universal fit, allowing your carrier to be fitted and worn the same way as it would underneath a uniform shirt.
  • ArmorSkin is designed to look like a Blauer Uniform Shirt using matching fabrics giving you a professional appearance while keeping your tactical advantage.
  • The ArmorSkin vest and StreetShirt use a breathable mesh and performance moisture wicking fabrics with a lightweight, comfortable build that dries quickly.
  • Using two-way zippers and stretch fabrics, the ArmorSkin vest offers quick donning and doffing, more coverage and advanced mobility.

 

The ArmorSkin Suspension System is a great addition to this system by helping to balance the weight of the duty belt between the shoulders and hips, allowing for a more comfortable fit for the duty belt. This also helps with improving circulation and reducing lower back and hip discomfort.
