  • The system fit perfectly into my kit and I did not have to make any adjustments to it. I could tell immediately that my body heat was no longer being trapped like before and I was more comfortable in my kit.

  • I sweat a lot. Summer, winter – it doesn’t matter. I have been dealing with a wet or soaking wet t-shirt under my armor for the last 5 years. Thankfully, those days are over.

  • From a ‘comfort’ perspective, I have never been comfortable in my armor. However, ARMORVENT has provided me with relief from the build-up of heat and has improved the way I feel when wearing my armor.

  • When I took my kit off I noticed my shirt was completely dry. It was so obvious that a couple guys noticed it and asked what I had attached to my kit. I will never operate without this piece of kit.

  • When I first received the product, I was skeptical that it could do anything to keep me cooler and more comfortable. But after my first day, I noticed a dramatic reduction in the amount of sweat soaked into my combat shirt.

  • The ARMORVENT panels have been a big hit here at MPD. They fit well, are comfortable and very functional. All the patrol personnel, bike officers and SWAT operators who are using them enjoy them. It assists in keeping them cooler in the summer, reduces heat rash and regulates their body temperature regardless of the weather. The product is an excellent one.

  • ARMORVENT has my seal of approval. I recommend it to all my partners. Best $50 spent.
