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!
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.

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.
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.
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.
