Thank you to all who attended our annual Hospitality Suite at this year’s IACP 2013 in Philadelphia, co-hosted by U.S. Armor and California Police Chiefs Association. What a great event this year and what a great turnout. We definitely enjoyed seeing you all at the suite over the 3-day nightly event and we look forward to seeing you again in Orlando, FL for IACP 2014!
Tajikistan Female Officers attended WLLE for the first time in 2013. Highlighting the importance of women in Law Enforcement in their country, this visit to the U.S. was designed to allow the Tajik officers to watch American female police officers handle crime alongside their male counterparts.
Tajikistan is moving toward having their female police officers handle crimes against women and children, a progression that mirrors the evolution of female police officers in America. During their time at WLLE, the Tajik female officers stopped by the U.S. Armor table and learned more about the custom FEMALE BODY ARMOR that we offer. They also learned how a vest that fits your body’s contours can also improve tactics, provide freedom of mobility and reduce officer fatigue in the line of duty.
NTOA Tactical Conference is celebrating its 30th year! U.S. Armor will be there helping to celebrate at Booth #234. Come by for all your Tactical Body Armor needs, questions, ballistic spec inquiries or even just to try on a vest to feel the U.S. Armor difference! Lighter, thinner, more flexible and tailored to your body, that’s what has made U.S. Armor The Most Trusted Name in Body Armor for over 27 years.
We know that once you own a vest tailor made to your exact body measurements…you’ll wear it!™

The Civil Service Employees (CSE) Insurance Group, in partnership with U.S. Armor Corporation, Sheriffs and You Foundation (SAY) and Bichlmeier Insurance Services, presented the Vests for the Best 2013 donation at the recent Fiesta Hermosa in Hermosa Beach, CA.
Eighteen (18) officers will now enjoy upgraded Enforcer XLT ballistic vests from U.S. Armor at a Level of IIIA. These vests are not only thinner, lighter and more flexible than any other model of vest at U.S. Armor, but at a threat level of IIIA, they will now protect these officers from all handgun threats up to the force of a .44 Magnum.
Congratulations Hermosa Beach PD and Redondo Beach PD!
Cecelia Stack joins 3 other employees who have worked at U.S. Armor Corporation for over 20 years and who we think embody the U.S. Armor core quality of longevity. Congratulations again, and thank you for your commitment to making us “The Most Trusted Name in Body Armor” for over 27 years.
A special THANK YOU to Orange County Sheriff’s Department, Training Division for their hosting of our recent product testing and live filming!

FMJ), .40 cal (155 gr. JHP), 5.56×45mm NATO and even a .30-06 sniper round, which was cleanly stopped by our Level IV Ceramic Plate.

U.S. Armor was well-received in Nurnberg, Germany. The IWA Outdoor Classic was recently held at the Messezentrum in Nurnberg, Germany, March 7-11, 2013. Among the companies participating in this event was U.S. Armor Corporation, who introduced their new NIJ 0101.06 certified armor vests and other specialty ballistic products. Due to the large demand in Europe and Asia for USA-made body armor, U.S. Armor filled a unique need for high quality ballistic products and customizable body armor solutions in a region where quality body armor can be difficult to find.
With a record turn out of 62,371 attendees this year, SHOT SHOW continues to exceed industry expectations.
