Shipping and Return Policy

Lead Times

We manufacture all of our body armor in house from the ground up. All armor is manufactured to order and payments are processed at the time of checkout.

As a result we may have production lead times posted on applicable products, such as body armor. Production lead times are updated with our best estimate based on our production schedule and order volume. In some cases manufacturing may take a little longer than expected - in this case we'll be sure to provide updates along the way and notate accordingly. Due to the level of demand and production lead time, all armor is manufactured to order and payment will process at the time of checkout.

Know that we make every effort to ship as quickly as possible. We will however, never sacrifice the quality of our product and integrity of our business by rushing sub-par products out the door. Good things take time to do right, and there are no exceptions with our product.

If the product is in stock and has no production lead time posted then we typically ship with 3-5 business days. This may vary with holidays, sales, and changing  political climate.
