Safariland Adds Its First NIJ-06 Female Model to Its SAVVY Line of Products
Safariland, a BAE Systems line of business, announced today that it has released an additional armor model that satisfies the requirements of the National Institute of Justice’s (NIJ) new Voluntary Body Armor Compliance Testing Program under NIJ Standard-0101.06 (NIJ-06).
The SM01F Type IIIA is part of the SAVVY, Armor For Women™ Series of concealable armor. It is the first NIJ-06 compliant, form-fit female armor to be added to this brand. Tested against the .357 Sig & .44 Mag. NIJ-designated rounds, the SAVVY SM01F Type IIIA is also the first NIJ-06 certified armor panel to use the exclusive, waterproof protection of Gore-Tex® fabric as a panel covering. The Gore-Tex fabric panel covering is form-fit to the armor panel, seam-sealed and provides odor and stain protection against environmental elements. Gore-Tex fabric can also be provided as an upgrade for other Safariland certified armor models.
