The Guardian Tactical is the beefier cousin to The Shadow Vest though not quite as concealable. The Tactical Vest comes with our high-threat armor, rated to stop up to .44mag. Whichever tactical carrier you choose to go with, you’ll have plenty of molle room to strap on all your goodies. The armor within the Tactical Vest covers the vital areas of the torso front, back and side to side, protecting you from nearly all pistol rounds.


The Tactical Vest will watch your back in any tactical situation. Insert your favorite steel plates into your carrier for a mil-spec armor system and the only thing you’ll need to replace over the next 7 years is the carrier.


ATEK Defense Systems is the only company to warranty soft armor to 7 years. Unrivaled protection from soft body armor, coupled with high-quality and comfortable carriers from reputable suppliers makes an armor system you will tell your friends about, hopefully before it’s too late.
