I’m a contractor who specializes in high end homes in the SF Bay Area, primarily Oakland and the surrounding neighborhoods; needless to say, I take precautions
My 5.11 Overwatch messenger bag goes everywhere with me and the Premier Body Armor insert fits perfectly in the main pocket, and leaves plenty of room for my 14” MacBook Pro when I’m carrying that. My everyday [computer] carry is an iPad Pro and that lives in the dedicated pocket on the back of the bag, which is a little too snug to stuff the body armor plate into as is; however, if someone wanted to they could cut the suspension straps at the bottom of that exterior pocket and it should fit the Premium insert. They also make smaller ones that could fit without any cutting necessary so keep that in mind if you have one of these bags
The insert is exactly what I was looking for, it’s lightweight and flexible, so I don’t know it’s there. Quality of construction and materials feels excellent and a hile I never intend to test its resilience, I have the peace of mind that there’s more than a simple nylon bag there to protect me
I’ll be ordering more for my adult kids ahead of the Holidays, talk about great stocking stuffers!
I’ve been thinking about purchasing this Vertx x Premier Body Armor bundle for awhile now and decided to go for it after what’s going on in the world. I’ve been getting into preparedness the past three years and this is exactly what I needed for my get home bag.
Premier body armor products are the best on the market !!
I have been searching soft body armor for use in the summer specially under extremely hot humid weather condition due to my job .. ordered everyday armor T-shirt with level 3 A armor panel … I decide to wear for a while before provide my review .. this is BEST body armor , very comfortable even under heat temp 100 plus degrees and concealed very well … very easy to install both front and back body armor panels within minutes.. excellent customer service and FAST SHIPPING !!!
Highly recommend to everyone!!
Waited a while, but finally got this plate. It's light enough to wear all day and fits all my carriers. From more discreet carriers to full on kits, this just works. Hope I never get to test its actual stopping power, but glad to have it.
Would highly recommend this product, I will certainly be purchasing more in the future. Thank you for keeping myself and my loved ones safe Premier!
I use this every day at work. It fits well, it's comfortable, and is incredibly discreet. The only down side is the basic sweating you get from carrying the plates. As such, it frequently needs washed. This would easily be handled simply by having a few extra shirts.
Just arrived today, tried it on, and initial impression is I really like it. Conceals perfectly with the long sleeves I typically wear to work. Don't mind the belly as I am 36 pounds down and on track for the remaining 64 lbs.
Overall, will do exactly what I need it to do without the need of wearing a vest to make myself approachable in my job's role, but ready in case something happens. Unlikely anything will happen but better to have it and never use it, then needing it but not wearing one.
Very impressed with how well it fit In the bag. I have the Transit 2.0. Also shipping was very quick and customer service was great when I asked a few questions. Will definitely be buying other products.
I absolutely love this body armor. It’s perfect for the summer time. I’ve found it’s best to pair with multi colored flannels like white and blue or red and black. It makes the armor way less visible.
Fits my wolfdog perfectly. Does not interfere with his ability to run/track down game, should protect him from antlers and tusks. Took vest off for photo but this is the latest hunt.
This is the coolest thing I have seen in a very long time.
As someone who has worn heavy cumberbund armor for the last couple of decades, this “Everyday” set is AMAZING. Yes, I’m giving up some protection area, but with the right pattern on the cover garment it’s invisible even to the customers who stand in my personal space all day. It’s lighter, cooler, far easier to move around in, and assuming the shirts holds up (I have some concerns about edge-snags putting the plates in and out, but so far so good) this will continue to be my daily armor for anything short of an outer carrier.
The shirt fits good and definitely order one size under your usual size. I tried it on with just a t-shirt over it but you can definitely see the outline of the plates. Best to be worn with a hoodie, flannel or button up shirt.
Overall I like the bag a lot. Panel, carry all work well. It's the very front pocket that may just need more use and breaking in, but the zipper was a little hard to operate that made me nervous using the zipper pulls it came with. I used some paracord and made new pulls with a snake weave and now I can operate the zippers with a little more leverage and it feels great.
I got this insert for the 5.11 LV10 Sling Bag 2.0 13 liter since there isn’t a bag specific insert for it. It just fits in the big main compartment if you push it to the front and close and zip the flap over it. I must have not measured well because I didn’t expect it to be such a tight fit but it does fit and this way it’s in front of the IFAC I carry in the bag protecting it to some degree too. Overall I am very satisfied with the purchase!
I use this for my EDC. The secondary compartment holds most of my IFAK. It’s just a tight fit for all of it. The smallest compartment only has the zipper on the one side. I carry it on my left side slung over my right shoulder, so when I rotate the bag to my front to access that small pocket, everything dumps out because of gravity. Over all, it works great. Doesn’t look like a weapons bag as a lot of the other tactical bags do. Zippers pull smoothly.
An excellent addition and right size for the daily use backpack I take to work. Bottom line…a piece of mind that the insert is another option to an unexpected outcome to the current times we live in.
This was a gift to Grizz, the new Nephi City police dog. The fit was perfect and everyone was more than pleased.
The Stratis Level III+ plate is a high quality, lightweight plate for the threat level protection that it affords. It fits into my backpack very nicely! It gives me the additional piece of mind over a level IIIA panel, when necessary. But, actually, I have a nice IIIA panel from PBA, as well. Sometimes, I exchange the plate for the panel, or vice versa. Sometimes, I have both in my pack. It depends on where I’m going, of course, and what kind of environment, I’ll be in. I’m in a large urban area most of the time. Of course, I don’t expect a level III+ and IIIA, together, to be a substitute for a level IV plate, but, I have the plate and panel, anyway, so often just carry them both.
Awesome product arrived quickly same week I ordered and was sized exactly as advertised. I reached out in advance with my measurements to make sure I was getting the right size so that's kind of a pro tip right there send a email to these guys and they will reach back out with a answer quickly. I find the vest to be quite comfortable the material it's made with is nice and soft and easy on the skin. The kevlar is or course rigid and doesn't like to bend but they've combatted this with these spandex zipper flaps that connect the kevlar front and back pieces. They give the vest a degree of flexibility. I imagine after some use the vest will "break in" and fit a little more free floating and not feel like I'm wearing a ballistic vest so much. Very comfortable though and even right out of the box I could wear it all day no problem. Highly recommend especially for Black Friday what a good deal.
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 have 38 yrs in law enforcement, and am Second Chance body armor save #802
I can tell you Kevlar can save your life! Priemer’s ability to integrate IIIA protection into a form that can be with you in your everyday life… at school, at the office, and even onboard an airliner, without drawing attention to itself. Its allways there waiting to stop
The most common leathal treats in use by those that cause others harm. Whether to cover your vitals as you make your retreat, or in front of you as a shield. With this protection only weighing an average of 2 pounds depending on size, it gives you options in a bad situation.
Options that can save your life. It also acts to stiffen your backpack, and protect your back from objects with sharp corners and protruding items that would injure you in a fall.
Even opened, you cannot tell this 11x17” panel is in place in my Vertx Gamut 2.0!
This is my new favorite beer holder. The velcro for patches is badass. Love em!
Perfect for traveling when we can take our EDC. Another layer of preparedness for me and my family
