I got the Elite V-Shield vest for my work as an armed security guard at a Private Vault over half a year ago and I couldn't be happier.
The armor panels were a little stiff when it arrived but has since broken in perfectly. After braking in the panels are flexible and move comfortably with my body. This vest is so comfortable and lightweight that it's not hard to forget that I'm wearing armor. This armor covers my vitals in the front and back, and, when worn under a button up, is definitely concealable. I work directly with customers in my role at the vault and no one has ever noticed that I'm wearing armor. (My girlfriend can't even tell if I'm armored unless she gives me a hug!)
Most important of all, this armor stops bullets like a champ. I bought a spare vest put 30 rounds (124gr 9mm Round Nose) within a two inch circle on the chest - No Penetrations!
Overall, this vest fits great, is comfortable to wear, and (after doing some personal shooting tests on a spare vest) I can affirm that this armor is top notch.
I have been wearing it for the last few days, its advantage is that it is very light to wear and very easy to wear, but I feel that it is always a little short, although it can effectively protect the position of the heart and lungs, it cannot guarantee protection to the kidneys and abdomen, because It is too short for me. If it is lengthened, it is perfect, and the breathability is so poor. It will cause some sweat to take it off every day. Of course, this is not the point compared to protecting life.
Thank you for your honest review Barry, I want to assure you that the vest you are wearing looks to fit you right. The Ultra Conceal vests protect the main vitals, heart, lungs and liver. The armor is suppose to sit about 1.5-2 inches above your navel. I hope this helps with some of your worries.
I am reviewing the Citizen V-Shield Elite IIIA+ Men's. I am 5'11 @200 with athletic build. My measurements based on the sizing chart were between a Medium and Large. I decided to go with medium with the knowledge that I could trade up if needed. I did not have to exchange as this fits perfectly well. People cannot tell I am wearing it unless they give me a slap on the back or hug. A lot lighter and more comfortable that I am used to (served in the Marines). I hope I do not have to put it to the test but as I tell my kids, "better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it." Great armor.
I'm 5"6, 140 lbs, 30 inch waist and maybe a 37 inch chest and got the small size vest. It conceals even under a snug black shirt. It makes me look buff in my case but a keen eye can notice it. Considering concealment and what PROTEK has to offer, I thinks it's the best option for daily wear. It's worth the price.
What I would like to see is protek being used to protect the femoral artery, groin and buttocks if thats commercially feasible. Only bullet blocker offers their Gabriel Down Under Kevlar system offers a product like that. Would like to see what ATEK defense systems/citizen armor could do. Could create a more robust concealed armor system along with this vest.
Alex Jones in the clutch yet again!.
I'm not disappointed with this armor. 10/10 for me.. conceals perfect under clothes an is very lightweight with comfort.
