These new models are available for immediate purchase in concealable and tactical body armor configurations.

"NIJ Standard-0101.06 (NIJ .06) is one of the most stringent, demanding and comprehensive personal body armour standards ever initiated and mandated by the NIJ," said Ron Gburek, Chief Operating Officer for KDH.

NIJ Standard-0101.06, Ballistic Resistance of Body Armour, is the latest evolution in standards by which law enforcement protective vests are measured and establishes minimum performance requirements and test methods for the ballistic resistance of personal body armour intended to protect against gunfire.
