Each Bullet Blocker’s NIJ IIIA Women’s Fortress Fleece is designed and manufactured entirely in-house in our Massachusetts facility. Constructed from high-quality, ultra-soft polyester, this vest can be worn as a top layer or underneath other layers for added warmth and protection. Using your exact measurements and color preferences, we create a custom garment specifically for you that offers maximum concealability without impeding comfort, style or mobility. From its modern design to its durable build, the Fortress Fleece is constructed to insulate without overheating for all-day discreet ballistic protection. The vest is engineered with two internal conceal carry pockets with straps to secure the barrel or slide during transit, and a front zipper that extends into an insulating stand-up collar that protects your neck from the elements. No matter your lifestyle, the Fortress Fleece is a wardrobe essential for anyone who desires light-weight, ballistic protection.

"I purchased the Fortress Vest. Quality sewmanship. However, while I fit into the measurements of the vest (L) the vest hit the middle number and not the larger number and left no room for anything heavier than a t-shirt. Take your measurements over what you plan to wear under the vest." -Anna
