GASTONIA, N.C. – June 12, 2020 – Premier Body Armor announces a new solution for low-profile personal protection: Custom Armor Inserts for the Tru-Spec Concealed Armor Shirt. Premier Body Armor’s new Level IIIA inserts have been designed especially for the Tru-Spec Concealed Armor Shirt. At just .8 pounds per panel, the whole package weighs roughly 2 pounds and allows for protection without the bulk of a vest or the need for extra or specialized clothing.
“At Premier Body Armor, we provide complete body armor systems to defend against handguns, shotguns and rifles,” said Alex Stewart, Vice President of Operations at Premier Body Armor. “We are committed to finding new ways to meet the ever-changing needs of our customers. Tru-Spec’s Concealed Armor Shirt offers a solid, yet subtle foundation for personal protection. Our new Custom Armor Inserts are the first of their kind to be made especially for the Tru-Spec shirt, and we’re proud to offer this new pairing to our customers.”
Premier Body Armor’s Level IIIA panels are designed and tested to NIJ Standard-0101.06. Though they are just .22” thick, these panels will stop 9mm, .40, .45, and .44 magnum rounds. Panels are Special Threat Tested to withstand 12 gauge buckshot and slugs, Liberty Civil Defense 9mm, and FN 5.7×28. Premier Body Armor’s panels are also stab and slash resistant. Each Custom Armor Insert is guaranteed by a 5 year Incident Replacement Warranty.
Tru-Spec’s Concealed Armor Shirt is constructed from TRU-DRI™ moisture wicking 85% polyester/15% spandex compression fabric. The top-loading pockets on the front and back are bordered by polyester mesh and 2mm of foam and have reinforced corners to prevent plate shifting.
For those who already own a Tru-Spec Concealed Armor Shirt, Panels are available separately.
