Looking for low-profile bullet resistant protection that won’t break the bank? The Express T-Shirt Concealable Multi-Threat offers front and back protection with maximum mobility at an affordable price. The Express T-Shirt is worn under your clothes. Similar in concept to our VIP t-shirt system, the Express armor package offers greater concealability and comfort at a slight trade-off of coverage area. The Express carrier is made of the same 2-way stretch material as our VIP t-shirt system, ensuring a comfortable, lightweight fit. Simply add the two included soft-armor inserts and you have an ultra-discreet armor setup to protect your vitals. For full wrap-around armor coverage, we highly recommend our VIP t-shirt system.

Installing and wearing your Express Concealable Armor is as easy as counting to 5: 

  1. Locate the opening of the armor pouch at the top of the t-shirt
  2. Fold an armor panel in half, with the fold running from top to bottom
  3. Insert the soft armor panels in the pouch then unfold it, making sure the label faces TOWARD the inside of the vest, on the body-side of the vest. Do the same thing for the other pocket
  4. Put the t-shirt on like you would a regular t-shirt
  5. Throw on a cover garment like a polo, dress shirt or sweatshirt and you’re ready to go.

Awesome Body Armor!

Fits great to size and super lightweight!

Jeffrey McCoy
Nice and comfortable

The lightest multi-threat Express T-shirt with the soft armor is much lighter than I expected and is very flexible and comfortable to wear.

Jacqueline Wilkins
A very good deal!

Purchased for “just in case” and got a very good two for one deal! Excellent turn around time from order to receiving. The “shirt” is lightweight and not uncomfortable. Will order more!

Steven Vaughan

I like the lightweight comforter and feel of this product. I'm sure this vest will give me the protection I need.

Express T-shirt multi threat with soft armor

This is the most comfortable and lite T-shirt with armor insert you will find. Its very flexible and easy to forget you're wearing it. Much better than others I own, again the weight or lack of is a huge selling point for me and after extensive searching National Body Armor came out on top, you wont be disappointed.
