Ballistics 101

ATT-Tactical™Ballistic protection comes in a variety of configurations and styles. Other manufacturers down-load their demonstration ammo used at PD vest shoots; WE DON'T! We don't "feather" the ballistics at the edges or bury a perforated alloy metal plate in the middle of the "package". Our vests provide true 360° ballistic coverage. We certified all our sizes from C1 through C5. The other guys only submit their C3 through C5 because its cheaper to test and easier to pass the NIJ certification tests. We don't cheat on your protection! Whether worn as a concealable while on duty or outfitted for a specialized tactical entry team we have several choices to choose from.

Here is a brief overview of just some of the vests and materials we use to create our many designs in your needed threat level.
ATT-Tactical™Female Bullet-Proof Vests '07 Certified

 While soft body armor can save the life of an law enforcement officer by preventing bullet penetration, the impact energy transferred to the officer's body will cause painful injury, called blunt trauma, most often in the form of severe bruises and even broken bones. The dangers from ballistic impact are particularly acute in the case of blunt trauma to female breasts. Breast, or mammary, tissue is easily bruised and heals slowly. Injury often results in necrosis, or death, of the mammary tissue with lumpy scar tissue eventually replacing the dead tissue. Beyond possible disfigurement, breast injuries from blunt trauma can result in loss of a breast and even death from internal bleeding. Our Female-Contour-Cut Concealable Vest provides the BEST coverage and comfort on the market. **Available in SLT/CLW Ballistics only** *Not available in Stab Armor*
ATT-Tactical™Male Bullet-Proof Vests '07 Certified

 Our Male vest features full side coverage designed to meet directly on the side of the torso & can be overlapped if its an agency requirement. The removable four-point, fully adjustable waist and shoulder straps ensure a proper fit and maximum comfort. The moisture wicking micro-fiber liner helps keep you drier. All our concealable vests INCLUDE a second carrier. Includes either 5"x8" powder coated steel plate or 5"x8" soft trauma pack Colors: black, white, navy or tan Available with SAS Stab Armor

Does your department need help in paying for NEW body armor?

We have your answer



Most major body armor manufacturers use Sonobond machines to assemble ballistic vests. Our ultrasonic devices create reliable seals that meet National Institute of Justice (NIJ) standards requiring body armor to be waterproof — even after submersion for 30 minutes.
Our SeamMaster® High Profile Ultrasonic Sewing Machine:  here's a recap of the benefits our ultrasonic bonding machines provide for body armor manufacturers. Achieving Life-Saving Specifications As you know, NIJ standards for body armor have become increasingly stringent as law enforcement, military personnel, Secret Service agents, emergency responders, and CIA employees don protective gear to ensure their safety.
Since the bullet-proof materials — such as Spectra-Shield® and Kevlar® — contained in the vest lose their life-saving effectiveness when exposed to water, it’s absolutely critical that the seams in the outer nylon shell are perfectly fused. Ultrasonic bonding creates a strong molecular bond that’s impervious to moisture and eliminates stitch holes, glue gaps, fraying and unraveling, substantially reducing any risk of damage to the interior contents of the vest. Creating an Ultrasonic Bond Ultrasonic bonding occurs when woven or nonwoven synthetic materials or blends with up to 40 percent natural fibers are placed between our ultrasonic bonder’s horn and anvil or, in the case of the SeamMaster, rotating wheel. High-frequency vibrations result in localized heat buildup that causes the synthetic fibers to soften and fuse, creating a durable seal without needles, thread, glue or other consumables.
We use the SeamMaster® High Profile Ultrasonic Sewing Machine: With its rotary operation and high-clearance wheel, our Ultrasonic Sewing Machine is ideal for sealing the exterior nylon shell of body armor systems. Since it bonds and trims in one step, the machine is up to four times faster than conventional sewing machines and 10 times faster than adhesive methods, enabling some manufacturers to boost output by more than 25 percent.
SureWeld™ 20 Ultrasonic PlungeBonder™ Our PlungeBonder seals large, multiple-layer and difficult-to-bond materials, making it best for attaching coated straps within the seam of a ballistic vest’s outer shell. In just one pulse, high-frequency vibrations channeled to the materials create a heat buildup that seals without compromising the integrity of the seams, again satisfying NIJ submersion standards.

SCOTUS refuses to overturn body armor law.
Proposed appeal in the case of Alderman v. United States had questioned Congress' lawmaking ability under the Commerce Clause 01/10/2011 WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court on Monday refused to hear a challenge against a federal law making it illegal for criminals to own bulletproof vests. The appeal had questioned Congress' lawmaking ability under the Commerce Clause. The high court refused to hear arguments from Cedrick B. Alderman, who was convicted under a federal law making it illegal for convicted criminals to own body armor that has been sold across state lines. Congress passed that law in 2002, citing its authority under the Commerce Clause to regulate interstate commerce. Alderman was convicted of armed robbery in 1999. Police caught him with a bulletproof vest in 2005, and he was sentenced to prison for 18 months. Alderman challenged the law, saying it exceeded Congress' power to regulate interstate commerce under the Commerce Clause. The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco upheld the conviction and sentence. The Supreme Court refused to hear Alderman's appeal. Justice Clarence Thomas and Antonin Scalia said they would have heard the case. Not hearing the case "threatens the proper limits on Congress' commerce power and may allow Congress to exercise police powers that our Constitution reserves to the states," Thomas said.
The case is Alderman v. United States, 09-1555.
18 U.S.C. § 931 : US Code - Section 931: Prohibition on purchase, ownership, or possession of body armor by violent felons

(b), it shall be unlawful for a person to purchase, own, or possess body armor, if that person has been convicted of a felony that is -
(1) a crime of violence (as defined in section 16); or
(2) an offense under State law that would constitute a crime of violence under paragraph (1) if it occurred within the special maritime and territorial jurisdiction of the United States. (b) Affirmative Defense. - (1) In general. - It shall be an affirmative defense under this section that - (A) the defendant obtained prior written certification from his or her employer that the defendant's purchase, use, or possession of body armor was necessary for the safe performance of lawful business activity; and (B) the use and possession by the defendant were limited to the course of such performance. (2) Employer. - In this subsection, the term "employer" means any other individual employed by the defendant's business that supervises defendant's activity. If that defendant has no supervisor, prior written certification is acceptable from any other employee of the business.
