I love the SurvivalBlog site and love the product reviews. They are always very helpful. Regarding Pat’s recent product review on EnGarde Hard Body Armor, I thought I would help you and Pat on the BUY AMERICAN front, and recommend Infidel Body Armor, which is made right here in the USA. (In Texas.)
The Infidel armor sues the same AR-500 steel panels. Great carriers, and great add-ons. I bought one 8 months ago and I love it! I’m going to buy some more. Check out their video tests of the panels under repeated fire. That is what sold me on them.

JWR Replies: Thanks for that suggestion. We too prefer American-made products, but we also run un-biased reviews of imported products, for the sake of fairness. Pat has already posted one favorable review of Infidel Body Armor, and he has one more that is being readied another review about the latest soft body armor from the same company.
