The Executive vest is designed to fit close to the body. When choosing a size, select one as if you were buying a tight-fitting t-shirt. Spandex in the vest does provide a small amount of stretch. You want to find the best combination of maximum coverage and comfort when choosing your bulletproof vest.

Is body armor legal?

Body armor is legal to own in all 50 states (but we can not ship it to the state of Connecticut or New York).

I'm in between sizes, which size should I choose?

Every Executive Vest comes with two 1" size adaptors. Therefore, we would recommend going with the smaller size and utilizing these adaptors.

Does the Executive Vest have side protection?

While the Executive Vest does offer flexible spandex side panels, there is about a 1" mesh strip (without armor) on both sides for breathability.

Can I wash my vest?

The outer carrier is machine washable. Simply remove the ballistic panels and trauma pad, then we recommend washing the carrier on gentle. Lay the carrier flat to dry.

Amazing Product

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!

Great product

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.

The executive

Thr vest is great. It is hardly noticeable with a T-shirt. In a button-down shirt or v-neck the vest is very discreet. The only concern is how the vest is pushed up when you sit down. Besides that, I'm very happy with it. The only Improvement I can think of would be velcro straps to make the fit more snug; but it could be a possibility I provided the wrong size. Get one, you won't be disappointed.

Very nice body armour but it did not fit

I wrote a complaint it was way too wide. I had to pay for shipping but the correct size is being made for me. It was really comfortable not too heavy but I got one a size too large following the guide. It fits my chest but the stomach portion was way too wide. Make sure after doing the size guide you message someone to confirm or you’ll have to wait two months. It is a very nice under shirt. Very compact and doesn’t break your profile no one will notice

Fits right and tight

Fits fits right and tight. Just needs a little bit of adjustment with the straps on the shoulder.
