Military spouses are often left behind when their servicemember is at work training or deployed for long periods of time. Do you feel safe while your spouse is away? I know I’m not alone in wanting more protection and education when it comes to safeguarding our family, especially if there is an intruder. Maybe you’re a female veteran who desires additional protection for home or work. Our friends at SafeGuard have answers for you.
Did you know that there is body armor specifically designed for a woman’s body? For years, bullet proof vests were not designed with a woman’s body in mind, but over the years, the need has been heard and met. Why it’s important: a vest designed for a male will not provide women with optimum protection. Maybe you’re a woman with an ample chest. If a woman with a large chest wears a Kevlar vest that was designed to be worn by a male, her breasts will become squished and may become exposed out of the sides of the vest. This can create a dangerous situation for the wearer because the exposure could lead to a woman being shot in the exposed area.
Safeguard is proud to offer vests which are specifically designed to be as strong and durable as the male counterparts. Even better, they are made with streamlined stitching to ensure that the edges do not scratch the woman’s skin. The darting used to create the female vets is different than that used in a vest for males to ensure the vest will fit over a woman’s chest comfortably. Four panels of material are often stitched together to create a female vest for not only comfort, but also to provide optimal protection to stay safe during a home invasion.
