Ballistic Fabrics

Bullet Resistant VestsKevlar Fabric used in multiply layers can be used to manufacture a Bullet Resistant product , for handgun protection.

At last, the general public now has a reliable and knowledgeable source to purchase the same ballistic fabrics that the large bullet resistant vest / body armor manufacturers use. All of our ballistic fabrics are proudly made in the USA. Most, if not all fabric mills only sell in very large quantities, making it impossible for most individuals to make small purchases to experiment or make their own bullet resistant products.
We do have a minimum order of 5 yards!

These ballistic fabrics can be used to make Bullet Resistant Vests / Body ArmorBomb Blankets and Vehicle Floor Fragmentation Blankets.
