The .25” thick armor can be fully concealed under clothing and forms to the body. Not only is this vest our most discreet option, but it also boasts the highest comfort for everyday use.

Very satisfied. Light weight and comfortable. Glad I went with Citizen.

Comfortable but has some drawbacks

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.

Comfortable and very concealable

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.

The best safety vest on the market.

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.
