SHTF Tactical


The SHTF is the beefy brother to the Civvy™, although not quite as concealable. The SHTF comes with our high-threat armor which is 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 SHTF covers the vital areas of the torso front, back and side to side, protecting you from nearly all pistol rounds.

The SHTF 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. Citizen Armor™ is the only company to warranty soft armor for 7 years. Unrivaled protection from soft body armor, coupled with high-quality and comfortable carriers from these reputable suppliers makes an armor system you will tell your friends about.
