The following reviewers own DFNDR Armor™ systems and have used the armor for many months before reviewing their plates.
California SWAT and Patrol Officer
I currently have a set of level III+ rifle plates from DFNDR Armor. I use it daily for work and I previously had steel plates in my carrier from another manufacturer. Wearing DFNDR Armor is a night and day difference from my previous armor.
The weight and comfort of the DFNDR Armor allow me to move easier and doesn’t cause any undue strain. I have visited the factory and seen the production of the plates as well as a set after it had been tested. I trust that this Armor will perform as advertised. This armor is extremely comfortable and I highly recommend it to anyone, it is worth it!
SWAT Officer | Range Master | Instructor
As a police officer and SWAT team member, I have been wearing body armor for over a decade. I have been given a multitude of armor through the years from metal to ceramic and have endured 16 plus hours of carrying it through many deployments. In SWAT school we were required to wear our kits( gear) for 10 hours per day for 2 weeks. The instructors told us that if we don’t pass out or quit from all vigorous training, with all our gear on, we would be ready for deployment at the end of the 2-week course. Heavy, bulky armor has been the industry standard for many years and we settled because a product did not exist that would adequately protect us and be comfortable.
Recently, I was introduced to DFNDR Armor. Initially, I was skeptical that a piece of armor could be so light yet protect me from large projectiles. The team at DFNDR Armor was gracious enough to sacrifice Level III and Level III plus plates for me to destroy. After shooting 40 cal hollow points, 5.56 , .308 and rifled 12 gauge slugs at these plates and seeing their amazing performance, I was unequivocally sold on their ability to stop multiple high caliber rounds.
After putting the armor into my plate carrier and running them with all my gear, I was amazed how comfortable and sustainable these plates were. The carrier was actually more comfortable to wear with the plates in then if I was to remove them all together. The plates provided the needed rigidity for the proper mounting of my mag pouches and gear and more importantly, they were light as a feather.
The plates are so light you literally don’t know they are there. I would trust these plates in any firefight and I have witnessed their performance and dependability up close. An often forgotten point when purchasing state of the art products……customer service. The team at DFNDR Armor stands by their products and are available when I needed them. One word to describe their product……..AMAZING!
Prior LEO | Prior USMC Infantry Squad Leader
Coming from both Law Enforcement and an Infantry background I have gained a perspective of both domestic and international problems. While as an LEO I only wore Level 3a soft armor, If DFNDR’s Level 3a hard armor plates would have been an option, I would have taken them over the soft armor. They are lighter and more friendly to movement in my opinion vs the soft armor with a front strike plate. From the Infantry standpoint; while doing patrols and other combat operations in Iraq and in the Philippines wearing nearly 15lbs of armor takes a
From the Infantry standpoint; while doing patrols and other combat operations in Iraq and in the Philippines wearing nearly 15lbs of armor takes a toll on your body. For those who know the armor is a small portion of the gear weight we carried during any operation. While I’m not a liberty at this time, DFNDR’s level 4 plates would have been a substantial weight reduction in armor. I wish I could have had them while deployed. Just remember, Ounces = Pounds, Pounds = Pain
