At Tactical Scorpion Gear, we have often heard our clients say that they face a lot of problems with their body armors, mainly due to the heavyweight nature. Conventional body armors are bulky. They need to provide a lot of protection against heavy fire. The weight of these body armors usually comes from the heavy padding material between the bulletproof stitching. This padding is responsible for absorbing the heavy momentum of the bullets. However, you don’t always need such heavy body armor. The biggest flaw with them is that they slow you down a lot.
With lightweight body armor, you can get the necessary protection without affecting the speed with which you move. For civilian protection purposes, the lightweight body armors make a lot more sense than the heavy military-grade ones. Here are 4 benefits of the lightweight body armor offered by us.Effective and Quick Movement
The lightweight body armor can help you use your natural instincts and reflex actions in the best manner possible. Instead of dragging you down, these armors facilitate free movement. Conventional armors are very tight and bulky, often presenting a suffocative feeling. However, these lightweight armors provide enough room to allow your body to breathe properly.No Loss in Protection Levels
A common misconception associated with all the lightweight body armors for sale is that they are not as effective as the conventional armors. However, there is no basis for this myth. They contain a lot less padding material for the energy absorption purposes. However, the quality of padding materials in a lightweight armor is of a far higher quality. The honeycomb matrix of the material in lightweight armor is capable of absorbing impact much more effectively than the layered version available in the conventional armor.Easily Concealable
The lightweight body armor is complemented by a carefully aligned matrix of padding material that contains a lot of air for kinetic energy damping purposes. This makes the armor compact and effective. The compact shape allows the carrier to wear the armor under a normal sized t-shirt or shirt to conceal it. Therefore, the armor is perfect for covert operations or for a VIP attending a risky function.Level III Certified Armors
Many armor offered by Tactical Scorpion Gear is level III body armors. This certification is the proof that they can perform their function correctly. We inspect all the level III body armors for quality control before sending them off to you.
