Is it possible to sweat less and actually be comfortable while wearing body armor on the job??

Posted on December 18 2015

For the first time in history the number of complaints from people who wear body armor on the job has ACTUALLY decreased!!  How can this be??

With over 10,000 police officers and first responders around the country and across the world using and loving The Maxx-Dri Ultra Comfort Vest, there's a good chance that you may have seen or heard about this amazing new innovation.

However, many times when new innovations like this first come to market there is a lot of skepticism....especially with cops!  I know because I've been on the job for 13 years and have seen and tried MANY products that have looked and sounded great but in actuality were garbage and just plain hype.  I'm sure many of you have experienced this first hand and know exactly what I'm talking about here!

So rather than tell you about how amazing this product really is and how it has changed the lives of police officers and first responders in all 50 states as well as in 15 other countries....I've decided to let you read what some of the officers themselves have to say about it.  I feel like this is truly the most authentic way to let any of you who are still suffering from sweat, (heat) rash, stink vests and discomfort from wearing body armor on the job see how The Maxx-Dri Vest is helping officers across the country and around the world!

Comfortable and definitely a good value. I typically walk a beat in San Francisco for at least three hour periods, sometimes in cold foggy conditions and sometimes in hot sunny conditions. My undershirt was always soaked when I took of my vest at the conclusion of any shift, irrespective of the weather. The Maxx-Dri vest is a wonderful addition to my uniform as it increases the general comfort of wearing the ballistic vest all day, and the improved air-flow keeps my undershirt dry on all but the warmest days when I'd be sweating in just a t-shirt and shorts anyway. Maxx-Dri is well worth the cost, and it can be machine washed very easily.

Love my DriMaxx vest in Edmonton Alberta

Works as advertised.

Where has this product been my whole career? This is hands down the best new product for comfort I've seen in years. So many other companies have tried but 221b tactical have done it. I've been recommending this and have actually lent it out on my days off for others to try. Look forward to wearing my vest

Great product, you can feel the difference. I would suggest wearing dri-wick (under armor) type undershirt. I have worn both the 5.11 cotton and Under Armor. The UA is more comfortable.

Police officer approved!!! So, I've been a member for almost a decade. I have always had issues with my vest, especially during the hot summer months. I live in a very hot climate in southern Alberta and the day shifts are almost unbearable. I am also unfortunately required to wear long sleeve shirts due to an archaic policy...but I digress. I found myself getting red rashes all over my chest from the constant heat and moisture that was trapped under my vest. These rashes turned to dry spots and became very itchy and uncomfortable. I purchased the Maxx-Dri and WHAT A DIFFERENCE. The vest doesn't prevent me from sweating but allows air to blow through my shirt and keep me dry...and comfortable. I've bought more vests and given them to 2 of my coworkers and they have come to the same conclusion...This is a great product!!

Great product. I put my arm out the window and to my surprise I felt cold air roll down my back and chest. This doesn't happen when wearing Kevlar vest without this product. A+

Jamal W.

Great vest. It works really well to wick away the sweat and keeps the actual vest off of you.

Ashly M.

Worth the money. This is a great product. Makes wearing a vest much more comfortable. You feel cooler and your under shirt is more dry after shift.

Fantastic. Keeps me cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Does a great job keeping the air circulating. I still sweat some but nowhere near what I did without it. My only complaint is the price. But overall I'm happy with it.

Phillipa M.

It did bulk my vest out a little but, but working 12 hour shifts, the (Maxx-Dri) comfort vest made me a lot more comfortable. I would highly recommend to allow circulation under your bulletproof vest.

Great buy. I'll keep it simple, it's worth it. It wont keep you completely dry, and it won't magically lower your body temperature. But it does a good job of creating some space between you and your vest to help with air flow. I've worn the vest for 2 weeks now and while at first it was a bit cumbersome to put on as well, I can't imagine not using it. It doesn't add too much bulk, light weight, and has a quality feel. The customer service is also excellent! Extremely quick responses, representatives are friendly, polite, and professional, and the company will work with you as much as they can. Happy with my purchase.

I've worn one for over a year, and love it. I cringe to think about putting on my vest without it. It's a MUST HAVE!

James Miller

My S.O. bought mine. I won't wear a vest again with out one! I am in FL and it's hot as Haiti here. Keeps you drier and cooler without a doubt
12/4/15: I just wanted your company to know I was recently given the under tank / shirt that goes between my vest and body. I contracted MRCA/staph infection while investigation a triple stabbing scene. After returning to patrol I started wearing my ballistic vest everyday. Because of the heat and moisture in Florida (and because I am now a carrier of MRCA) I started getting recurring infections. I stopped wearing my vest because I didn't want to be infected around my family. I found your product and since I started wearing it, no infections. I would be interested in your company using my testimonial and name. Thanks. J. Miller

And those are just a few of the THOUSANDS of REAL testimonials from REAL cops and other first responders who are out there on the job every day....just like you and me.

So if you've been considering giving this amazing product a shot maybe now, after reading what your brothers and sister on the job have to say about it, you'll give it a shot. After all....when it comes to your comfort and safety....aren't YOU worth it???
