Premier Body Armor Ballistic Inserts Proudly Made in the USA
The protection of a vest is now available in a lightweight, concealable t-shirt! The Everyday Armor T-Shirt is designed to fit close to the body. When choosing a size, we recommend sizing down. The EAT is designed to be worn as a compressed undershirt, which helps to conceal the armor.
The new Everyday Armor T-Shirt 2.0 keeps all the breathability and convenience of the 1st generation model but increases in concealability and comfort.
Like its predecessor, the 2.0 is designed around custom, USA sourced and made level IIIA ballistic inserts. The 7.75" x 12.75" size of the ballistics was determined to be the optimal size to cover the Cardiac Box while maximizing concealability. This is the vital area of coverage as it is not only a common target area, but is also likely lethal if there is penetrating trauma here. Injuries outside this region are more easily treated with bleed control technologies.
You get two of these ballistic inserts in the bundle and they carry a 5-year warranty. Ballistics from the Gen 1 Everyday Armor T-Shirt are also compatible with this new shirt.
The 2.0 shirt carries over the moisture-wicking, antimicrobial polyester which helps remove heat and moisture from the surface of the skin. They both also have an integrated weight-bearing support system that is strong, yet soft and flexible.
The armor pocket has been moved from top-opening to the bottom-opening. This simple change now allows the shirt to be more easily put on with the ballistics inserted. The second and most important improvement is the addition of our new Concealment Channels. This addition to the support system pulls the armor closer to the body, and increases concealability up to 50% more!
*Shirts fit true to size and are intentionally long to allow the shirt to be tucked in (for additional support).
The Everyday Armor T-Shirt was intentionally designed to protect the Cardiac Box, which is considered one of the most lethal trauma areas on the human body. Blunt trauma or penetrating injuries to this area are often lethal, with research showing that over 90% of individuals with these injuries expire before arriving at the hospital.

The Everyday Armor T-shirt is designed to be worn as a compressed undershirt, necessary to best conceal the armor as these shirts do run large. When choosing a size, we recommend sizing down from your normal T-shirt size for the best concealability. If you typically wear a size Large T-shirt, please order a Medium Everyday Armor T-shirt.
Body armor is legal to own in all 50 states (but we can not ship it to the state of Connecticut or New York).
We recommend sizing down. While the shirt does fit true to size, sizing down allows for more of a compression fit which helps conceal the armor.
The outer t-shirt is machine washable. Simply remove the ballistic panels, then we recommend washing the t-shirt on gentle. Hang the t-shirt to dry.
Yes. Ballistics from the Gen 1 T-shirt are also compatible with this new shirt.

Comfortably hugs your torso underneath your everyday clothing. Great when traveling into questionable areas for work. This the 4th item I’ve purchased from PBA and very pleased w/the quality & value!
I live in a very dangerous city with an inordinately high crime/murder rate. When I saw this product that quickly becomes an armored concealable T-shirt once the 2 included level IIIA Dupont Kevlar plates are installed in the front, I knew immediately that I just had to purchase it. This item is at a very reasonable price and it gives me a tremendous amount of peace of mind as well as assurance that I will be protected from gunfire from any of the caliber of bullets in it's extensive range of protection or even being stabbed/slashed with a knife ,sword ,and practically any sharp object. It fully protects your internal organs from taking any damage and Premier Body Armor wll give you a free replacment under warranty if you can procure an authentic police report just in case you get shot .
The body armor itself is actually quite comfortable,lightweight, and feels so empowering because it makes you virtually bulletproof if you are ever shot . I chose a black size 2XL and it fits my body seamlessly .I am so estastic and alleviated that I can now travel around my city without having to be concerned about becoming one the countless victims of gun violence. I would love to purchase another one in the white colorway next time ,however it would be fantastic if they came out with various more colors besides black and white in the future. I have worn this body armor mutiple times in public so far and people don't seem to even notice. Thank you Premier Body Armor . You guys just earned yourself a customer for life and I am throughly impressed with your product. Keep up the phenomenal work.
An affordable easily concealed way to wear body armor. It's form fitting so expect to wear this as your base layer unless you order a size up. Wearing it looser than normal won't be a hindrance as you can easily tuck the shirt into your pants. The inserts are inserted into pockets on the inside of the of the shirt itself and are meant to be inserted with the wide side towards the top. They are a different size than the standard size of armor inserts so if you wanted to place standard size plates in, there may be some sticking out of the top. Two IIIA flexible plates are included and are to be inserted in the front and back. If you were to order level IV plates for use with this, keep an eye on the weight as to not tear the shirt itself. In other words don't order the inexpensive heavy ones if you plan on using this as your carrier, and again remember their may be some armor sticking out of the top due to height difference.
I haven't tested this out as its for SHTF or a similar situation. In addition to this product I have a flexible body armor I can wear over this for extra protection.
I definitely recommend for price, quality and what is essentially lifetime replacement providing you have a police report to show this his was damaged in that manner.
good for every day -but would like rifle plates and the entry slot on top.
