This is a very affordable soft body armor solution and it is Made In USA. The Defender series from US Palm offers a variety of models but we prefer the Defender 308 which provides pouches for three (3) .308 magazines and three (3) pistol magazines. The Defender provides level IIIA protection in an easy-to-use package. While the base unit only provides front panels, you can purchase a soft rear panel and the Defender also works as a plate carrier too. For the price there is almost nothing like the Defender series which offers a practical entry-level package for everyone. There is no excuse to not have body armor with kit like this available!
