Looking for low-profile bullet resistant protection that won’t break the bank? Our Express Multi-Threat Concealable T-Shirt armor system may be just the thing for you. Similar in concept to our VIP T-Shirt wrap around armor system, the Express armor package offers greater concealability and comfort at a slight trade-off with only front and back protection. The Express carrier is made of the same 2-way stretch material as our VIP, ensuring a comfortable, lightweight fit. Add the two included Level IIIA+ soft-armor inserts and you have an ultra-discreet armor setup to protect your vitals. 

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

  1. Locate the opening of the armor pouch at the top inside 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 body. 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, sweatshirt or jacket and you’re ready to go

System includes:

1 Quantity - Express T-shirt carrier in either black or white
1 Quantity -  Set of front/back NIJ-certified soft armor, Level IIIA+ panels (see sizing chart below)

What’s the difference between the three armor types? Weight and cost

  • Light is most popular among citizens looking for Level IIIA+ protection that is relatively lightweight yet affordable 
  • Lighter falls between these two, costing less than the Lightest, but weighing more than the Light.
  • Lightest is popular among LE, security, and other professionals looking for the lightest, thinnest, most concealable, and most flexible IIIA+ protection we offer, but it costs more


Thickness: 0.35” | 0.25” | 0.21”
Colors: Black or White Lycra
Sizing: Available in sizes ranging from Small to 5XL, and are available in our Light, Lighter, or Lightest armor materials.* 
How to Clean: Wash and dry the t-shirt with your regular clothes, wipe down the soft armor

Our Level IIIA soft armor (0101.06 standard) will protect you from a .38 special, .40 S&W, .45 ACP, 9mm, .357 Magnum, .357 Sig, .44 Magnum. Our IIIA+ includes the following additional protections from 9mm SXT, 7.62x25 Tokarev, 40 caliber, 5.7x28. We always recommend Level IIIA+ so you may defeat the 9mm SXT “cop killer bullet”.

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.
