These vests easily conceal under any light jacket or overshirt, and are even rather difficult to detect under something as light as a polo or oversized t-shirt.

 

Each vest covers the entire thorax and upper half of the abdomen, including overlapping side protection.

 

These vests are European-made by Protection Group Danmark with American materials (Honeywell Gold Shield), and are rated to stop all NIJ IIIA threats (nearly any handgun-caliber threat) as well as 55J of puncture force (roughly equivilant to NIJ Level 2 Spike protection, which is sufficient to stop nearly any knife wielded in one or two hands by an assailant). The normally sell from PGD at around $650 USD.

 

The PGD-Delta vests weigh in at a bit under 4.5lbs and each and each side (front/back) of the vest is about 0.25" thick. The ballistic panels themselves weigh in at 2lbs each and are 0.19" thick. For comparison, here are the same measurements on popular market alternatives that offer comparable protection levels for both gunshots and stabs, as well as their prices at time of writing:

  • SafeLife Defense Multi-Threat Vest (Chinese Make, ~7.5lbs, 0.40" thick): $550
  • Velocity Systems Mayflower (US Make, ~5.5lbs, 0.26" thick): $750
  • Safeguard Armor Steath Vest (US Make, 5.5Lbs, 0.30" thick): $685
  • Caliber Armor CaliberX Covert (Chinese Make, 5.67lbs, 0.24" thick): $705

 

These vests are some of the lightest and most comfortable we have ever worn at this level of protection, and we think they are the optimal choice for the unique intersection of people that A) subsist on a working-class income and must provide their own equipment out of pocket and B) regularly deal with chaotic, mixed-threat environments such as protests, counter-protests, police actions, and more where threats can come at unexpected times and directions from knives, pistols, and improvised threats, all while needing to remain light, mobile, and discreet.
