Default Best place to buy body armor?

Hey CG,

Where is the best place to buy body armor? either online or in NorCal

I just want to have some, mainly for novelty purposes, but can't hurt in case SHTF

Thanks in advance,

TZL

You can get it on ebay from a company called Marom Dolphin Ltd. Ebay is usually pretty shady but this manufacturer is actually a contractor with the Israeli Defense Force and you can tell the seller, ZFI, Inc is legit because of their rating. Its not cheap tho, its about 400 for a IIIa police style jacket, add another 350 if you can dyeema rifle plates in the front and back to make it Class III.

Yeah, he wasn't worth talking to. FUD Farmer.

The guys with the 5.11 clothes for sale had some level IV plates for sale for $400 for two. Not a bad deal.

Yeah, I bought a "few" 5.11 shirts from those 2 & almost ran thru the parking lot screaming "start the car! start the car!" just like the Ikea commercial......

$20 each..

I bought a couple, and if I had thought to double check the normal price of the 5.11 shirts, I'd have bought tons more. Awesome price. Hopefully they'll be around another show.
