I’m looking for concealable female body armor for my wife. I’m not finding a lot of female specific armor out there. I’ve come across SafeGuard’s FEMPRO and see RMA is planning on coming out with some in October. Anyone have any information or recommendations about them or other female specific body armor?
Welcome to the Community, @Darwin! I don’t have body armor, but there are a few out there I’ve heard of (not an endorsement, just heard about them.)
Here’s an interesting article about how women’s armor is different. https://www.spartanarmorsystems.com/blog/how-body-armor-varies-between-female-and-male-users/
Anyone else have some ideas for @Darwin?
Spartan armor is a great company, we use their targets on our range.
Does your local LEO departments have any female LEOs? That’s where I would go for gear advice for your wife.
Disclaimer: I would ONLY consider this for GEAR advice. It’s been my experience that LEOs are not exactly reliable when it comes to LEGAL advice. Legal advice is what we have attorneys for, obviously Academy is not the same as law school and does not confer the same understanding of the law. (This is NOT a dig on Law Enforcement!)
@Darwin Something else you might consider is a backpack that will accept a body armor panel. Looks like some of the “female” specific options will get pricey. I f your wife isn’t going to be runnin’ and gunnin’ this might be your best option.
