Citizen Armor uses multiple layers of a product called, Nano-Protek™, made by ATEK Defense Systems, to create its armor. Nano-Protek™ is a technology that uses carbon nano-tubes to reinforce and strengthen aramid fibers for ballistic use. It costs a little bit more but it adds significant benefits over typical body armor options.
In 2016, ATEK researchers were able to blend carbon nano-tube fibers into a substrate to create what we call Nano-Protek™. With Nano-Protek™, they were able to create a soft body armor that performs above NIJ threat Level IIIA standards. It is less than 1/4 inch thick and can be worn beneath everyday clothing.
Combining the power of Nano-Protek with other ballistic materials such as Aramid Fibers and Polyethylene, Citizen Armor is able to offer you some of the best armored products in the world. With this technology, Citizen Armor offers two types of armor.
Option 1: ELITE Armor
This armor is made from a combination of Nano-Protek and Polyethylene. The combination of these materials creates a synergistic relationship allowing for a stronger, longer lasting and waterproof armored solution.
Option 2: STANDARD Armor
This armor is made from a combination of Nano-Protek and Aramid Fibers (aka Kevlar). This combination of these materials creates a synergistic relationship allowing for a stronger, lighter and more affordable armored solution.
