MDM – ArmorWorks Is Back!

Wednesday, September 28th, 2016

After a brief hiatus, ArmorWorks is back in the market actively supporting several prime contractors with seating and armor systems both here and abroad.

Right now they are concentrating on the vehicle market, manufacturing seats for armored vehicles along with vehicle armor, including metal composite armor. However, they’ve got a long history of PPE development behind them they can reach from, based on customer requirements.


New Armor Carriers From ArmorWorks

Monday, October 7th, 2013

When I visited the ArmorWorks booth at Modern Day Marine I ran into Steve Reichert who showed me a few new armor carrier designs that he had a hand in helping develop. In the photo below you can see all of the carriers.

And here are some additional shots:


This is a full on assault carrier in AOR 2.


This low viz model was intended to be worn under a shirt or jacket and has an interesting take on magazine carriage. As you can see it utilizes elastic pouches right into the vest. Additionally, they’ve developed a set of belt mounted mag carriers.


You may notice that these carriers also offer the capability to integrate chest rigs such as the D3 Chest Rig from Haley Strategic Partners.


As you can see, the simple, streamlined design of the concealable vest means that chest rigs can also be worn with their integral webbing.


Word is that these should hit the street this Fall.

MDM – Additional Photos of ArmorWorks Protective Combat Shirt Mod2

Thursday, September 26th, 2013


On Tuesday we showed you the new Protective Combat Shirt Mod2 from ArmorWorks but I wasn’t satisfied with the photos. I want you to see the various features of this innovative design. In particular, check out the shawl collar, ventilated torso and short sleeves. Many in the SOF community cut off their sleeves in the heat and ArmorWorks has acknowledged this by pairing it with an FR long sleeved undershirt.


This diamond shaped section is a jacquard mesh for ventilation.


The OD sections of the garment are a proprietary two-layer, double-sided Kevlar knit/jersey construction first used in the Protective Under Garment (PUG).

ArmorWorks Protective Combat Shirt Mod2

First seen on SSD at SOFIC 2012, the ArmorWorks Protective Combat Shirt has evolved with new materials and a new look. The genesis of this shirt is the ArmorWorks Protective Under Garment (PUGz) first fielded by the US Marine Corps in 2011 and subsequently by select units of USSOCOM. Like the PUGz, the Protective Combat Shirt is flame resistant (FR) and designed to protect the wearer from IED blast fragmentation and associated small particle debris.

The shirt is designed and cut to provide the wearer with additional protection for all the areas not covered by PPE. As seen in the accompanying pictures, the lower abdomen, lats, arms, neck and throat are all protected by a proprietary two-layer, double-sided Kevlar knit/jersey construction (sage green material in the photos). The Kevlar knit on the outside provides the combat proven protection while the inner jersey layer provides the moisture wicking comfort.

The high v-neck zipper-less collar provides 360 degree protection around the throat and neck without the uncomfortable bulge of a zipper under your plate carrier or body armor vest. The torso and back of the shirt features a diamond shaped jacquard mesh ventilation pattern commonly seen in state-of-art sports apparel that maps directly to the heat zones of an operator wearing body armor, providing breathability and cooling where needed most. As mentioned previously, the shirt is FR throughout and features X-STATIC antimicrobial technology that inhibits the growth of bacteria and fungi.

Whether you’re planning a short notice trip to EUCOM or you’re already ankle deep in spent brass, this is the shirt you want to have on! The Protective Combat Shirt will be on display at the Modern Day Marine, September 24-26 at ArmorWorks Enterprises booth #2003.

ArmorWorks has been hard at work developing new designs like this jungle load system demonstrator. They’ve also been working with integrating new materials into those designs. Look for something completely new, coming soon.



SOFIC – ArmorWorks

We first showed you the ArmorWorks Modular Plate Carrier during SHOT Show. They had this cool, laser engraved one-off there but we didn’t get a photo. Fortunately, they also had this special version featuring a Tribal design at SOFIC. The Modular Plate Carrier is coming soon.


SOFIC – ArmorWorks Protective Combat Shirt

ArmorWorks has applied lessons from the Protective Under Garment program to a Combat Shirt. The green panels (contrasted for effect) are aramid and help mitigate injuries. Also, note the under sleeve.
