Armor for rivers of blood is a type of protective clothing that is worn by soldiers during combat. It is typically made of a thick, water-resistant material such as leather or canvas, and is often reinforced with metal plates or other armor.
The purpose of armor is to protect the wearer from enemy attacks, and to help deflect or absorb the impact of enemy weapons.
Had to order the Icon Field Armor 3 because my Icon Stryker vest ripped and it appears they have stopped making it. So for the extra $65 it is over the Stryker I was expecting a good quality vest with some upgrades from the Stryker.
The 3 is bulkier on the chest but is about the same size of protection in the front length wise. The back feels a little more flexible than the Stryker but also has added padding that can be removed.
The inner padding that can be removed gives you the option to make the vest slimmer. But leaving the padding in definitely feels like more protection if you were to go down. It also feels like it’s been built with better quality materials.
Overall I give it an A- only because the chest plastics are bulkier than the Stryker but as I get used to it I am confident it will be Icon’s best one yet for me. It’s hard to say added protection is a problem at 150mph but still gotta get a good tuck! Solid vest – Literally and figuratively!.
Leatt 3DF AirFit Armored Vest Offering a slightly higher level of protection than the 3DF AirFit Lite Body Vest, the 3DF AirFit Body Vest has a protection score of 11 points in the Leatt protection system.

Love this thing. Gives you all the protection you need minus elbow pads and is super comfy and low pro. Havent ridden in super hot weather yet, but seems to breath well so far. Pads are super easy to remove and reinsert for washing.
Has held up well after several rides. If youre like me and dont like to wear outer protection over your jersey do yourself a favor and swoop on one of these. Best low pro protection out there. Im 6′ 1″ 220.
Always been someone who works out so I have some muscle bulk, but also a dad bod, because lets be real, kids get in the way of everything! Haha, gotta love em though. I ordered a large/X-Large and it fits nicely.
Now keep in mind its a compression shirt so its supposed to fit real tight. If youve ever been any kind of athlete and worn Under-armor type base layers, it fits like that. The zipper makes it way easier to take on and off though, nice touch.
Have taken a 4 day trip and numerous short outings with this gear. Its comfortable for several hours and not restrictive at all. I do mostly street and adventure riding, some single trail but nothing really difficult.
Haven’t tested it’s crash protection yet. I do like how it keeps the armour in place, unlike some jackets I’ve tried, and the coverage of the padding looks good. A little pricey. I like the options it gives of what to wear overtop.
I don’t think it would provide a lot of abrasion resistance if worn by itself.
BODYARMOR EDGE combines hard-working hydration with a boost of caffeine that gives you an edge. BODYARMOR EDGE contains natural flavors and sweeteners and no colors from artificial sources or dyes. This variety pack comes in three delicious flavors: Berry Blitz, Power Punch, and Tropical Chaos.
BODYARMOR EDGE contains potassium-packed electrolytes in each bottle. The flavors contain extracts of the real fruits that are included in each of our BODYARMOR EDGE varieties as well as 10% coconut water.
Potassium is critical in the hydration process by preventing cramping due to its role in nerve function and muscle control. Most traditional sports drinks use sodium as their key electrolyte. However, Americans get enough daily sodium via their food consumption and not enough potassium.
Too much sodium can cause high blood pressure and potassium helps to lower blood pressure. There are no dyes in BODYARMOR EDGE. BODYARMOR EDGE uses colors from fruits, vegetables and vitamins such as Beta Carotene.
BODYARMOR’s portfolio of products provides essential hydration before, during and after activity or anytime you need hydration throughout the day.
Hydration and caffeine?? My family already loves body armor, but with the addition of caffeine to it really knocks it out of the park! They taste great and help give you an extra boost. Overall great buy, hope they stick around at Sam’s club instead of being limited time!.
POC’s body armor is highly impact absorbent, lightweight and adapts to create an individual fit. Our body armor has been developed to provide the highest levels of protection with a complete freedom of movement, with no compromise between safety and comfort.
The efficient ventilation technology will keep you cool and allows you to focus on your ride.
I purchased a Men’s small for my 12 year old racer in prep for a Super-G race. He really appreciated how easy it is to just slip the vest and cinch up the belt to hold everything in place rather than other options available.
He commented that it’s comfortable, flexible and light – not restrictive at all. On the 1st training day he used the vest, he took a nasty fall and credited the vest avoiding an injury. Not the highest end option out there, but seems like a really good value for the protection it offers.
I have sizes small, med, and large of this style vest back protector. My sons (one 5’7″, one 4’8″) are on the free style ski team this season and back protectors are required. They have tried them out on the summer training air farm ramps and so far so good.
Fits well. They’ll also use them mountain biking. Good easy fit for them. They are slender, so this fits well.
The VPD System vest provides confidence and protection with zero drawbacks. I wear this product everyday while skiing park and freeriding, the design offers free range of motion and breath-ability without sacrificing protection.
Super comfortable, the vest stays in place all day and is sleek enough to fit with any layers. Vents on the back work exceptionally well and the entire vest breathes, even when hiking I have never been too hot wearing the vest or been really sweaty from it pressing against my back.
Quality construction, no signs of fraying or stretching after a few standard crashes while wearing it. Very pleased.
Comfort, Safety & Function, all wrapped in one! Your orange vest should offer more than just the required inches of color. The Ballistic Vest makes shooting more comfortable with a reinforced foam shoulder pad and is treated with a Durable Water Repellent finish, making it an essential part of the Sitka rifle season system.
Had a hard time pulling the trigger on this a couple of years ago. Had always ran the little cheapies that last 1-2 hunts. This has now been around for 3 years and is going strong. Vest is tough, no holes, scrapes.
Having pockets is quite nice. Even has a shoulder pad for shooting.
I had been borrowing a weight vest similar to the 5. 11 vest for several months before purchasing the Rogue. It wasn’t until receiving the Rogue vest that I realized how terrible that vest was. The Rogue vest has so many little features that I wouldn’t have appreciated without using the inferior vest first.
-The internal straps to hang the plates inside the pockets is genius. -The Rogue vest is super compact and a lot easier to get on and off. -The shoulder straps stay in place and are pretty comfy. -The double Velcro waist strap is way easier than any buckles or clips.
-The material is all scratch free so I’m not raking my face off every time I put it on or take it off. -The contour of the plates themselves fit super well and are extremely comfortable. -The overall build quality seems super high and I can tell this vest is going to last me for a really, really long time.
When I ordered it I was pretty annoyed at how expensive it was but once I got it I’m honestly cool with it now that I see how excellent of a product Rogue has designed.
1) It is one of the cheapest and high-quality vests compared to the rest of them. 2) It is the slimmest and is less profile compared to the others. Meaning that the Rogue plate carrier does not have any extra bells and whistles attached to it.
The two other plate carriers are for military purposes and have pockets to hold magazines and other tactical stuff. The Rogue plate carrier has pockets for only the weighted plates. 1 pocket in the front and 1 in the back.
When running with the Rogue plate carrier, your arms do not hit or touch the sides of the vest when swinging your arms. For shorter people like me (I’m 5’5″), I feel like this weight vest fits my torso/chest very well and does not feel “too long”.
Meaning that the bottom of the vest does not rub up against my belly button, does not get in the way when doing an air squat, and does not pinch where the top of my leg meets my torso. When you put the plates inside of their pockets, they fit perfectly and do not have any extra room, thus reducing the amount of movement when running or performing other movements (pull-ups, push-ups, burpees, etc.
) Because of its simplicity, adjusting the shoulder straps is very easy to make the vest fit the way you want. If you take a look at the Rogue plate carrier online, it may look poorly and cheaply made, but the material is actually very nice, durable, and made in the USA (a huge plus).
Since I am a smaller dude (5’5″) I got a size small, which was a perfect fit for me. What makes the vest feel snug and comfortable against the front and back of your body are the plates that you use to insert into the vest.
I got the curved 10lb weights (Rogue Echo/USA Cast Weight Vest Plates) and they feel so comfortable resting against my chest and back. I would say that the only thing that I wish the Rogue vest had is more comfortable shoulder pads (to me this is a very minor thing).
Don’t get me wrong, the shoulder straps feel perfectly fine resting on your shoulders but would probably feel irritated if you wore a shirt that exposed more skin on your shoulder area. I would try and not wear a tank top.
If you wear a regular shirt, the vest will feel perfectly fine. You also have the option to buy extra padding for the should pads if you want. After using this weight vest for over a month, I would highly recommend this product to anyone! It was definitely worth the money and I am fully confident that you will not be disappointed if you consider buying this product!.
I used to have a 5. 11 vest but always felt like the plates bounced around no matter what I did. Plus it looks a little ostentatious but in kind of a cool way. Anyway, I sold it and bought this instead.
It definitely doesn’t look as cool because it has more of a minimalist look and it’s much smaller but I like it though. The plates don’t bounce and I can breathe pretty easily. I took off a star because I think shoulder pads should have been built into it from the start instead of having to add them on as extra items.
They shouldn’t cost extra. This is a trend I notice that Rogue does a lot. Also, some instructions on how to secure the plates would be helpful. I had to mess with them for like 15 minutes before I figured it out.
And because the pockets are so slim it was kind of a pain to manipulate the straps.

But, upon impact, they stiffen to provide reliable protection. Ideal for mountain biking where you want to remain as mobile as possible but still protected.
sizing is spot on, but the length could be a little longer (~2”) lightweight and breathable netting. removable back piece is a bonus as i carry a bladder bag for longer rides. easily reinsert ,back piece when the rough gets going.

Introducing the most adaptable Level IIIA soft body armor vest to hit the market in years. The Concealable Armor Vest is the best body armor vest designed to shine in ANY situation. A bulletproof vest that is sleek enough to be worn concealed under a button-down shirt AND stylish enough to be worn as your outermost layer.
Vest fits great, used the measurement chart as well as confirming via email to make sure I was getting the correct size. Everything went smoothly, needed the vest that same week, ordered it on Monday and the team was awesome enough to get it out next day, arrived on Thursday! Comparing to a safelife defense, I saw another review stating the vest is lighter, which I can confirm.
Also to add, the vest is less bulky compared to safelife, which is what I was looking for. Even had one of my partners questioning if I was wearing a vest or not during our shift. For reference, vest is used for LEO, I got a size medium at 5’8″ 165 lbs.
with roughly a 37 inch chest. Glad I stumbled upon this company while browsing reddit of all things.
Very impressed with the vest, the weight and range of motion for the coverage you get is great. Compared to safelife, the vest weights significantly less, forms to the body much better and the breathability is superior to the latter.
I’m definitely impressed with my purchase and feel confident with the product. My only issue is the velcro cummerbund is too short and small to grab and install on my own. (usually need a busy to help or swim it over myself) not a major issue.

I am 73” and weigh approximately 215 lbs. I ordered the large / long for the vest size. It actually is slightly too big around the sides, where the flaps meet up. They don’t quite exactly touch. It takes a while for this vest to break in and form to your body.
It comes with extra straps and an extra carrier, which is nice. Looking back I should have ordered the medium / long. Overall, the vest isn’t too heavy and works very well for me.

Nice option for running in a plate carrier. Picked up one to run in my lapg atlas plate carrier. Using it for the front and an lapg level4 10×12 for the rear. Great weight for the protection level and economically priced.
Running it for range training. Great way to get started in personal armor, in stock more often than not and great price. Reliable shipping and decent looking product. Fyi, made in China. YouTube reviews have it performing as expected.
Very happy with the price and reliability of LAPG brand products.
Obviously have not shot the plates but they receive great reviews from others who have. These are the larger plates and as i am 6feet 250lbs i appreciate that. They are a bit heavy but still lighter than my old level 3 steel plates.
They fit my carrier perfectly and are fairly comfortable for when i need to wear them. Great price and i would buy them again.
Really good level Iv plates at a price you can’t beat. Look at the Youtube reviews for actual performance – pretty amazing. Harder to find in the larger 11″ x 14″ design.

Fit my son’s backpack perfectly. I bought him an Addidas brand pack and simply measured the laptop compartment. The compartment has double zippers so I used a small zip tie to secure them together. This prevents my 10yo from messing with it.
He wears it to/from school and his teacher is aware of its capability. In the unfortunate event of an active killing event/attempt at his school, the teacher knows to wear the pack in reverse fashion while securing the classroom.
I pray this will buy necessary time for the SRO to neutralize the assailant. Well worth the cost.
