Safariland uses Honeywell Spectra Shield in new protective vests for female law enforcement officers

Jan 9 2017

Honeywell announced that Safariland, a recognized leader in the armor market, has selected Honeywell’s Spectra Shield and Gold Shield ballistic composite materials to create some of the industry’s thinnest, lightest and most comfortable vests, including new vests designed specifically for female law enforcement officers.

Traditional vest models are designed only for male or neutral body shapes. Honeywell’s premium Spectra Shield 5000 series provides optimal material to produce concealable, lightweight ballistic protection for all body types with the Safariland Armor SX vest family.

Spectra Shield 5000 is the latest version of Spectra Shield, which is a patented Honeywell technology and is designed to optimize the ballistic characteristics of Spectra fibers. Spectra Shield and Gold Shield products have been widely adopted and proven for the most advanced armor applications globally, from bullet-resistant vests, breast plates and helmets to combat vehicles and military aircraft—all of which require lightweight solutions and superior performance.
