Body armor packages vary in weight and all orders are shipped through the USPS or UPS Ground Shipping with order tracking information available. Shipping information will be provided by email as soon as the order leaves our facility.

All products are eligible for an easy return or exchange as long as the return is initiated within 30 days of receipt, and the product(s) is in new, unused condition.

For the sake of clarifying terms, "Lead Time" or "Production" phase is the time it takes for PBA to manufacture a product at our USA manufacturing facility and then get the product to our shipping/fulfillment department. This is NOT necessarily the amount of time it will take for the customer to receive the product.

With this in mind, we keep our backpack inserts, laptop cases, Discreet Executive Vest, Hybrid Tactical Vest, Core Mission Plate Carrier, and many more products in stock to cut down on the amount of time the customer has to wait to get the protective products they need. At times, a single color or size may be out of stock for a short period, typically less than a week, but the overwhelming majority is always in stock. 

We do not stock products that are more specialized or have significantly less demand and instead maintain a production time that is industry-leading and clearly stated on the product page. If you are interested in a specialized product or one that is out of stock, feel free to email ( or call us (704-214-9951) during business hours for a delivery estimate.

If an order is expected to take longer than the lead time listed on our website, we will provide an updated estimate of when you may expect your order.

At this time we only ship within the United States and parts of Canada. 

For Canadian purchases the buyer is responsible for all import fees associated with the shipment.

We can not ship to AB, BC, MB & NS due to restrictions.

Shooter’s cut is designed for an active shooter because it allows the wearer to shoulder their rifle with improved comfort and positioning without vital coverage loss. The SAPI/ESAPI cut is the more traditional body armor shape, often found in military armor systems. For comparison with a 8″x10″ plate, the area of the Shooter’s cut is about 2.22″ x 4.45″ and the area of the SAPI/ESAPI cut is 1.81″ x 2.61.”
