According to the website www.SafeGuardArmor.Com, Safe Guard Armor is the largest manufacturer and supplier of body armor in the United States. I recently had the chance to get a hold of one of their Stealth model vests and I was highly impressed! Over the past 16 years I have had the opportunity to utilize several different manufactures of body armor and the Stealth SafeGuard vest was among the most comfortable and concealable I have had the opportunity to wear.
SafeGuard like many other manufactures have several different models to choose from so whether you are a soldier, a law enforcement officer, a security guard, a citizen solider or just a regular Joe worried about the direction of our society who is looking to increase your own personal protection, SafeGuard Armor has an application for you. One of the great things about the SafeGuard Stealth Body Armor is that it is a true “Multi-Threat” Vest capable of stopping some serious pistol rounds (NIJ Level 2) and has a Level 1 edged weapon protection so it will also protect you from some serious knife and edged weapon attacks as well!
To begin this review I took a look at the construction, the quality, the conceal-ability and the overall functionality. Check out the video below to see that table top review.

Next I had the opportunity to take the SafeGuard Armor Stealth vest out to the Appalachian mountains to see just how tough it really was and what sort of real world protection it actually offered. To say the least I was very impressed! First, I let the Stealth Model vest have it with my Springfield XD Subcompact (9mm). Then I went at it with my Gerber EVO, EDC Knife. You won’t believe how well it performed. Check it out in the video below!
Overall Impressions Of The Stealth Model SafeGuard Armor Bullet & Knife Proof Vests
As you can see from the videos above the vest performed very well and was very comfortable, affordable and extremely concealable. Honestly I don’t have much at all to say negative about the vest. It would be nice if it came with an extra carrier, just so you would have an extra one for when you were cleaning the primary, but that is a very insignificant issue and I am sure they are available for purchase on the website www.SafeGuardArmor.Com. As with most gear reviews I do I always assign a rating for the products and I am happy to say that this piece of gear gets my first 10 Star rating. It really is a great product for the money and it simply offers outstanding protection for the vast majority of threats that most citizens will ever face.
