I love how it keeps the vest away from the body. The contact points that allow the separation take a little getting used to, but they are not uncomfortable, they are just different. As it gets even hotter & more humid I am anxious to ""

I had the pleasure of doing T&E for approximately four months with the Cool Shield shirt. I can say with the utmost certainty that if you wear any body armor (PPE) professionally that this product falls in the category of something you cannot do without. ""

“It’s like PEDs for my vest.”

Some days, it’s too hot for me to wear my vest for long periods of time. With these shirts, I’m no longer forced to choose between comfort and safety.

I face long odds out there. This tilts the scales in my favor.

I can’t believe something this simple can make such a difference.

How Does CoolShield™ work?

CoolShield™ was designed to marry two things that you need every day: comfort and ballistic protection. Cool Shield provides enhanced airflow giving you an extra margin of safety and performance that comes from wearing your armor longer while staying cooler.

Heres how it works:

We start with safety

CoolShield’s vertically elongated ribs hold the vest away from the torso. The ribs improve your likelihood of wearing your vest longer and more often.
Ballistic testing by an independent, NIJ-certified lab demonstrated how CoolShield can reduce backface pressure by up to 30 percent against a .40 S&W round. The patented concept is proven not to compromise the function of your armor. Armor is a must, and the CoolShield baselayer makes wearing it a better, safer experience.

We engineer in comfort

These elongated ribs let air flow freely through cooling ventilation channels. This airflow pushes heat and perspiration vapor out the neck of the vest.

Then we add the perfect fabric

The fabric of the shirt was engineered to keep you cool and dry during physical activity. The 2 layer fabric of the shirt allows for regulation and cooling of the body while wicking away unwanted moisture.
