Graphene Armor is the high performance ballistic material that Citizen Armor is proud to offer you, the civilian. Protek™, the graphene microfiber material we manufacture our products with, is licensed from ATEK Defense who is a military and police armor supplier. Our graphene armor products come in the form of bulletproof vests, backpacks, inserts, notebooks, and binders. All of the armor we produce is tested by the NIJ and exceeds their standards for level IIIA ballistic performance. We are proud to be the every man’s source for bulletproof vests, vehicle armoring, and building armor.
The 3 Must-have Elements of Armor
Bulletproof armor must be able to:
1. Take multiple hits from many different rounds.
2. Substantially limit trauma and debilitating injury from Back Face Signature (BFS).
3. Maintain mobility and quick reactions while being light-weight and flexible.
Protek™ Graphene Armor does that and MORE…
Citizen Armor uses a proprietary graphene microfiber formula called Protek™, which slashes weight by up to 66% compared to traditional vests. Not only does graphene armor weigh less, but mobility and flexibility are not compromised with our Protek™ technology that moves with bodies of all shapes and sizes. Our soft body armor has unparalleled flexibility and is specifically made to conform to the contours of human anatomy, providing both men and women greater comfort as well as safety.
Unlike traditional aramid fibers, Protek™ Graphene Armor has been proven to function even after complete submersion in water, neutralizing a key weakness of common soft body armor. In addition to being water resistant, ATEK soft body armor is impervious to UV light and atmosphere and doesn’t degrade like traditional body armor, which makes our soft body armor far more durable and cost efficient.
We don’t have to remind you of the traditional body armor of the past…but how can you forget that they are bulky, thick, heavy, stiff, and frankly prone to failure if they took multiple rounds or happened to get wet. They also degrade as they age and have a standard life of 3-5 years.

And you receive a formidable, 7-year warranty* on all Protek™ Elite soft body armor – unparalleled in the industry, and a key money saver for units and individual users.
Furthermore, we’ll provide FREE replacement of any product whenever a wearer of our product is shot on duty.
Who else stands behind their body armor at such a remarkable level?
Protek™ Graphene Armor is the material of the FUTURE
Great strides have been made in recent years, including our revolutionary, proprietary, graphene microfiber technology, we call Protek™. This material of the future is manufactured by ATEK Defense Systems, and is a micro-reinforced, high tensile strength composite created for use in soft armor solutions. Harnessing the strength of aramid fibers, graphene microfibers, and other high strength micro materials, Protek™ is designed to rapidly disburse energy away from the body.
113 rounds stopped by ONE VEST…and still counting!
So far, we’ve shot a single piece of our armor with a wide assortment of handgun rounds 113 times – at last count – and it just keeps stopping those bullets time and time again.
.22LR, .380 cal., 9mm, .40 cal., .45 ACP, 38 Special, 357 Mag, 357 Sig, .44 Mag, Our advanced Protek™ soft body armor has stopped them all…every time.
Graphene armor is about a lot more than bullet blocking…
Stopping bullets is the first step, but as you well know, Back Face Signature (BFS) – or the trauma behind the armor – is sometimes as dangerous as bullet penetration.
The NIJ has developed a strict set of guidelines for law enforcement, military and security body armor. These standards are accepted around the world. NIJ allows 44mm (or about 1.75 inches) of BFS to pass standards.
Even though the bullet doesn’t penetrate the vest, imagine the damage that could be caused to muscle, bone and internal organs. Not only could it knock you down but it could render you incapacitated, unable to move, and left in harm’s way.
Citizen Armor’s Protek Graphene Armor meets and exceeds minimum NIJ standards. Our armor has been specifically engineered to greatly reduce the amount of trauma or BFS. Shot with 9MM rounds, ATEK products typically score in the mid to high teens (14mm – 19mm), which is 20% better than standard competitors.
Translation…Taking a hit will never feel like a warm bubble bath, but by wearing our NIJ certified armored products, you’ll remain mobile and capable while being protected.
Shrapnel? Knife attacks? You can thwart many of them as well. This lightweight armor will truly astound you. More important, it could SAVE you!
