Second Chance and ABA are well known.

You are gonna have to contact them, as they personally fit and make each individual vest.

You can probably buy a universal vest, but this is something that you are going to wear for 10+ hrs a day (I work 12's so I wear mine closer to 13hrs) if it doesn't fit it will suck and you will not make it.

Second Chance goes by the name Armor Express now. Just for clarification. That's my personal choice, even tho it's not what I have now.

Make sure you duct tape a couple of plates to your chest and store a few in your briefcase to use as a shield.:rofl:

I know those are both good brands, I was looking for a place that sells them. I will check out GT's new store and C&G. Thanks for the info.

Go to bulletproofme.com they will help you out. I almost bought a vest from there but convinced my department to buy me a brand new one.

U.S. Armor is the best company ive dealt with by far when you consider all aspects of buying a vest.
