We Sell ONLY to Law-Abiding Adults
Body Armor is strictly intended for personal defence, regardless, we are very sensitive to the possibility that body armor may be misused by criminals. By purchasing body armor from us, you certify that you are law-abiding, of legal age, and have no felony convictions or criminal intent. We do not sell to convicted criminals, minors, and people with felonious intentions.
It is against the law for a person convicted of a 'crime of violence' to possess Body Armor under federal law (unless required by your employer, see, Sec. 931). It is also illegal under state law for a convicted felon to own armor in many states.
We cooperate with law enforcement to stop the use of vests by criminals.
If you have any criminal purpose in mind (or resell your armor to a criminal) you do NOT want to have purchased from Body Armor USA.
We reserve the right to refuse a sale to anyone, and the decision is at our sole discretion. By purchasing a vest from us you guarantee that you are not legally prohibited from buying body armor, and also that you are not associated with any criminal group, in any way, and have made the purchase for legitimate self defense purposes.
WARNING: U.S. EXPORT CONTROL LAWS
Level III and IV armor (Rifle Plates)
fall under the jurisdiction of the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR), and are subject to the export control laws of the U.S. Government. Export or retransfer of Rifle Plates or Helmets with Accessories by any means to any foreign end user, or for any other end use, whether in the U.S. or abroad, without the written approval of the U.S. Department of State, is prohibited.

Residents of Connecticut:
Are prohibited from buying Body Armor unless the sale is face to face (or unless the buyer is a police officer, Police Department, or military). We cannot ship to residents of Connecticut who are not police or military. In this case we are happy to meet with you in person for a nominal consultation fee.
NO Armor is 100% Bulletproof
A 'bulletproof' vest is better referred to as a bullet resistant vest. We only offer NIJ level IIIA+, for more information on ballistic threats and protection levels, please refer to the chart below.
Traditionally, soft body armor is not designed to protect you from:
unusual high velocity pistol ammunition
pistol ammo fired from a rifle barrel
armor piercing ammunition
sharp-edged or pointed instruments (e.g., knives, icepicks, etc.), and/or
other unusual ammunition or situations...
Also, at some angles projectiles can slide, or deflect off the edges of Armor, or ricochet. Furthermore, projectiles that are successfully stopped by armor will always produce some level of injury, resulting in severe bruising, broken bones, and possibly serious internal injury or even death.
By purchasing Body Armor you assume ALL risks of use or misuse, and agree not to hold us liable in any way. In addition, YOU are responsible to ensure that your ballistic panels are positioned inner side IN, and outer side OUT if applicable (check the inside vest panel label).
