This GTS vest is made with Ultra-High-Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMWPE) a lightweight, super strong material that has become the standard in soft body armor manufacturing. Our ballistic panels are specially layered with varying PE densities to reduce backface deformation. Here is why our vest is superior to "bulletproof t-shirts": Our vest covers the sides of the body that are exposed when turning to flee or locate cover. Protecting the sides of the body is very important when considering a bullet resistant product.Our vests also have adjustable shoulder and frontal straps that hold ballistic materials in place, high enough to cover vulnerable arteries at the top of the heart. Some t-shirt products sag toward the waistline, exposing these vital areas. Our vests cover much more of the overall body, outside of the typical 10"X12" insertable soft armor located in most t-shirt products. A "t-shirt" is not a "vest" on many levels.
We encourage potential buyers to be aware of the differences. Please ask if you have questions about the differences between our true, bullet resistant vest that offers oustanding coverage and a "t-shirt" item.

31 1/2" to 35 1/2". 33 1/2" to 37 1/2". 35 1/2" to 39 1/2". 37 3/4" to 42 3/4".
41 1/2" to 45 1/2". We have discovered that customers should typically order their t-shirt size.
Please be aware that customers with large mid-sections may see some need to adjust the four Velcro straps on the front, allowing separation of the front panel from the rear panel as needed for a comfortable fit. Oung man wearing this vest in the photos is wearing a medium vest, is about 5'8" tall and weighs about 140 pounds, a 33" waist and a 34"-35" chest circumference. Please note the minimum numerical figure of each size range in the table above referring to waist or stomach sizes. The minimum size shown will result in a fully closed vest on the sides of the body.
For a respective size, as the minimum number moves toward the maximum number in the range, the vest will separate along the sides to accommodate the body. As with most vests, persons with stomach or waist sizes exceeding 41 1/2 should expect to have some opening along the sides as the vests are adjusted for proper fit. It should always be a main goal to close the vest sides as much as possible when wearing. Also, remember to adjust your vest high enough to cover the top of your heart and arteries in the top of the chest.
It is also possible for the vests to be adjusted BELOW the minimum adjustable range. For example, persons with waist or stomach sizes below 31 1/2 can still wear a small vest - the panels would just overlap along the sides.
Face shields are manufactured in one size only. In the course of transit, the vest and carry case may appear slightly wrinkled upon arrival.Use a household iron on LOW setting to improve this. If inventories are depleted, rest assured that we are working to build up additional stock. This can take anywhere from 1-4 weeks. For more information about bullet resistance levels, research the NIJ 0101.06 standard. NOTE: Certain international customers (outside of the USA) may place orders through this listing.
