Legal Terms of Sale and Website Use

It is the SOLE responsibility of the purchaser to ensure that all transactions conform to U.S. and Federal, State and Local Statutes, Codes, and Ordinances and the purchasor's local laws and regulations.

We Sell ONLY to Law-Abiding Adults

Body Armor is a purely defensive item but, regardless, we are very sensitive to the possibility of vests being misused by criminals. By buying a vest from us, you certify that you are law-abiding, of adult age, and have no felony convictions. We do not sell to felons or minors.,

It is against the law for a person convicted of a 'crime of violence' to possess Body Armor under federal law (unless required by your employer, see, Sec. 931).   It is also illegal under state law for a convicted felon to own armor in many states.

We cooperate with law enforcement to stop the use of vests by criminals.

 If you have any criminal purpose in mind (or resell your armor to a criminal) you do NOT want to have bought Body Armor from us!  (The only loophole in our Privacy Commitment is to respond to inquires from law enforcement where armor we sold is suspected to have been involved in a crime.)

We reserve the right to refuse to sell to anyone, in our sole discretion. By buying body armor you guarantee that you are not legally prohibited from owning firearms, or body armor, and also that you are not associated with any criminal group, in any way, and have only a lawful purpose for owning body armor.


WARNING:  U.S. EXPORT CONTROL LAWS

Level IV Rifle Plates
and
Ballistic Helmets with Rails and / or Night Vision Shrouds added

fall under the jurisdiction of the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR), and are subject to the export control laws of the U.S. Government. Export or retransfer of Rifle Plates or Helmets with Accessories by any means to any foreign end user, or for any other end use, whether in the U.S. or abroad, without the written approval of the U.S. Department of State, is prohibited.

There is often an exemption for Rifle Plates for a U.S. person taking their personal protection with them in their luggage, and returning the armor to the US.  For the requirements, click here. One of the forms required may be found here.

Penalties for transgressions of export regulations can be severe, so be sure to exercise careful due diligence.


Level III Rifle Plates, Level III-A and Level II vests, and Ballistic Helmets (without Rails or Night Vision attachments) are controlled by the Bureau of Industry & Security (BIS). These items can often be exported with the appropriate export license exemption, but only when going to approved countries. Some countries, or larger quantities, may require an export license. See:  http://www.bis.doc.gov/licensing/exportingbasics.htm


Residents of Connecticut:

Are prohibited from buying Body Armor unless the sale is face to face (or unless the buyer is a police officer, Police Department, or military).  We cannot ship to residents of Connecticut who are not police or military.


Residents of AlbertaBritish Columbia,  Manitoba:

As these provinces often require a Body Armor license, we will ask you to provide us documentation of your exemption status, or your Body Armor license before purchasing.


NO Armor is 100% Bulletproof

A 'bulletproof' vest or other armor will protect you from the vast majority of pistol ballistic threats you are ever likely to face. But there is always a tradeoff between more protection and more wearability (and the constraint to stay within your budget). Please know that:

  • rifle rounds
  • unusual high velocity pistol ammunition
  • pistol ammo fired from a rifle barrel
  • armor piercing ammunition
  • sharp-edged or pointed instruments (e.g., knives, icepicks, etc.), and/or
  • other unusual ammunition or situations...

CAN defeat body armor.

Also, at some angles projectiles can slide, or deflect off the edges of Armor, or ricochet. Furthermore, projectiles that are successfully stopped by armor will always produce some level of injury, resulting in severe bruising, broken bones, and possibly serious internal injury or even death. Soft body armor defeats most pistol and shotgun projectiles, but NO vest on earth makes you invulnerable to all threats. To state the obvious, getting shot ALWAYS carries some risk.

Be aware that your head is much more susceptible to blunt trauma than your body. ANY impact of a bullet on a helmet WILL CAUSE INJURY AND CAN CAUSE DEATH. You put the odds more in your favor with head protection, but, just as with ANY armor, no guarantee of invulnerability can be made.

By buying Armor you assume ALL risks of use or misuse, and agree not to hold us liable in any way. In addition, YOU are responsible to ensure that your ballistic panels are positioned inner side IN, and outer side OUT if applicable (check the inside vest panel label).
