Armored Duty Jacket

Duty Jacket

Available in:  Standard Black

Custom colors/trims upon request

Optional Hood (Armored or Plain)


With ProWearGear soft body armor system, our Armored Jacket, provides 360 Upper Body Protection neck to thigh. These Jackets are designed for spike – blade – slash threats.

Protection is available in a choice of levels and are equivalent to NIJ Spike 1, 2, 3 and higher.

Our protective fabrics are incredibly light, lean, flexible and fire retardant (FR) yet inherently soft and flexible for a comfort – flex fit that mold easily to unique contours of men and women.

Protective Liner Options are available in Multiple Combinations

  1. CLASSIC 1, 2, or 3 – is spike-slash resistant for most threat protection; Classic 1 for light, Classic 2 for mid and Classic 3 meets NIJ Spike Level 3 Standard 0115.00,  the highest NIJ rating for spike threats.
  2. ULTRA GUARD is spike-blade-slash resistant and reduces internal bruising and trauma. When combined with CLASSIC 1, 2, or 3 as a base, ULTRA-GUARD exceeds protection equivalent to NIJ Spike Level 1, 2, or 3.  The addition of ULTRA GUARD panels gives kick back to a knife’s impact to recoil energy back into the knife to reduce internal bruising and trauma. ULTRA GUARD is a ProWearGear patented fabric technology.
  3. To learn more about CLASSIC and ULTRA GUARD, visit the Protection Options Page.

Panels can be removed for cleaning, replacement.  New layers  can be added to expand a CLASSIC 1, 2, or 3 System into an ULTRA GUARD 1, 2, or 3 System.
