DFNDR Armor® is manufactured 100% in-house, and we take great pride in the quality we produce to ensure your safety. All of our hard armor systems are manufactured once we receive the order and ships as soon as possible. Level IIIA, III, III+ and IIIX armor systems have faster manufacturing than III++ and Level IV or armor systems incorporating Crystalline Ceramic Strike Face and Strike Core.

Products will be shipped through UPS. Please refer to the tracking number issued in your confirmation email. Your DFNDR Armor® account will let you know if your product has shipped, or if it is in transit.
