The Gabriel Compression Vest is an ultra-concealable, lightweight vest, that offers the highest rated soft body armor protection. The goal of the Gabriel was to decrease bulkiness, and increase efficiency. Featuring our state of the art panel suspension system, ballistics will not sag or roll like other compression vests you may see on the market. Ergonomically designed, the Gabriel provides complete, uninhibited mobility, while leaving a nearly invisible footprint under most garments. Proudly made 100% in the United States at our Massachussetts Facility.
