Great customer service!

The customer service @ Citizen Armor is where it needs to be with the customer, every time I call to put in a order they listen 1st then cater to my needs, after all they are the professionals. Aaron Gilbert you’re the man 👊🏽.

RTG Backpack is great for travel!

Great product at a very good price. I've got the backpack version and it's great because I have a bulletproof vest that's also a functional backpack. I recently had an overnight stay in a motel and was able to pack my laptop (with power cord and mouse), my phone and tablet (along with power cords), and a complete change of clothes in the backpack. My wife didn't even know that I had a bullet proof vest with me. The only thing that I'd like to see is a video explaining how to repack the vest once it's been put on.
