The Blauer ArmorSkin® body armor integration uniform system provides a level of comfort that outperforms conventional body armor carriers. With the Blauer vest carrier, officers maintain the normal look of the police uniform without the bulkiness associated with other body armor options. The Blauer ArmorSkin features a lightweight design that alleviates the pain in the lower back and hips that officers sometimes suffer.
The Blauer outer vest system includes the ArmorSkin vest, a performance uniform shirt and an optional duty belt suspension system that’s integrated into the Blauer vest carrier. The entire Blauer 8370 system is perfect for the officer who needs to showcase a professional looking uniform, while maintaining a tactical advantage in the field. The mesh lining means you’ll stay cool during warm weather.
Additionally, the Blauer ArmorSkin uniform system offers adjustability in the clothing to ensure it fits every officer. You can make adjustments to the Blauer vest carrier at the shoulders and sides, enhancing the comfort level of the Blauer 8370 while maintaining security and mobility. The comfortable fit allows for a greater range of motion too, meaning you can perform a variety of tasks without worrying about the ArmorSkin moving out of position and causing an uncomfortable or unprotected fit.
ArmorSkin® and ArmorSkin® Suspension System are patented (U.S. Patent No. 8, 528, 112).
More on External Vest Carriers:
Modern law enforcement professionals face potentially lethal threats in situations that may seem somewhat harmless on the surface. Today’s criminals carry a variety of dangerous concealed weapons. A law enforcement professional never knows what weaponry they can be facing as they investigate a building, enter a home or make a routine traffic stop. With this constant looming risk, police bullet resistant body armor has become a standard part of every officer’s outfit.
The latest concealed soft body armor is more protective and durable to wear and use; however, it is also less comfortable than past generations of armor. At the same time departments who take advantage of the Federal BVP grants have now created mandatory wear requirements to continue to receive benefits.
Body armor carriers, especially the external vest carriers, have become increasingly popular due to the lack of comfort offered by the new vests and the new rules. Many feel external carriers can portray an unnecessary and unwanted military image that can be too intimidating to civilians. Others have noted that the multiple layers of nylon material used to make the carrier make them hot and defeat the purpose of wearing them in the first place.
Here at Blauer, we understand that the protection and added comfort an external vest carrier provides may come with unwarranted attention to a peace officer of the law when in a non-tactical situation. They are plainly seen as armor vests by the public and criminals alike. With that in mind, Blauer developed ArmorSkin to give law enforcement authorities a discrete method of using an external body armor carrier while still maintaining a non-threatening, professional image.
