Like any public safety profession, corrections work and prison duty can get dangerous in a hurry. Prison riots and uprisings remain a concern for penitentiary workers, and those in police or protective custody can often turn vicious or themselves be the targets of violence. But modern body armor can often be heavy, uncomfortable and rigid, making it difficult to do your job. ArmorSkin® tactical vests for corrections officers are the new and improved way to carry soft body armor for those who need protection. With the Blauer ArmorSkin ballistic cover system, you can operate as you normally would without feeling weighed down.
A full three-piece ArmorSkin system includes everything for all-day comfort. Our corrections officer tactical vests are designed to be worn over rather than under your uniform, making it easy to take on and off. And since they look just like an everyday uniform shirt, you can avoid raising alarms to passerby. Blauer makes tactical vest covers out of the same materials as our regular corrections uniforms, including sturdy cotton, breezy rayon, warm wool and breathable polyester. We’ve added mesh lining and side panels for ventilation plus unbreakable zippers so they won’t come apart during a fight and leave you exposed.
With their universal body armor fit, durable construction and crisp appearance, corrections tactical outer vests are perfect for public and personal safety needs. Use them with our ArmorSkin tactical base layer shirts and duty belt suspension systems for a complete penal officer uniform to wear during high-stakes supervision and safety activities. Fast-drying lightweight base uniform shirts have additional moisture-wicking properties in both short-sleeve and long-sleeve options with a traditional uniform look. If you struggle with back pain due to heavy equipment belts, duty belt suspenders will help support these loads while improving posture. You’ll feel the difference during normal activities and during combat when you use the Blauer tactical vest system for prison duty.
