ALPHA Sizing
Armor Express is proud to launch its Alpha Sizing System. In a perfect world, everything would be custom tailored to fit the unique characteristics of the individual user; however, this cannot always be a reality and standard sizing is often necessary. Unfortunately, most standard sized body armor results in discomfort and a poor fit. That is why Armor Express developed this new Alpha Sizing System, which consists of new concealable body armor patterns based on anthropomorphic data and human engineering factors. With 21 gender neutral sizes, the Alpha Sizing System will accommodate 95% of the population. The simple and straightforward measuring process makes it easy to determine your proper size. Available in X-Small Short thru 3X-Large Long.
