Looking to stay cool, dry and less sweaty beneath your body armor? Try this for body armor ventilation!

Do you wear body armor on the job? Do you ever find it unbearable at times due to the heat and excessive sweat build-up? Hate having to wear that sweaty, stinky shirt and body armor for an entire shift? Hate having to constantly wash your body armor carrier...which destroys the velcro and straps? Ever break out in that rash from the heat and bacteria build up? Ok....I think you get the picture! 

For many who wear ballistic body armor or a stab vest on the job the pain and suffering that comes with the heat, sweat and constriction of the vest drives some to not want to wear their vest at all. And in today's day and age, you should NEVER go on duty without body armor. 

Over the years there have been many attempts at creating a solution to this age old problem. Many use Under Armour beneath their body armor. However these shirts simply can't do their job of wicking moisture when they are suffocated by heavy body armor. They need space to breath in order to do what they are meant to do. That's why when you take your body armor off on a hot day, you find your Under Armour shirt is soaked in is your vest and skin! This leads to dangerous skin infections and that foul body armor odor (you know EXACTLY what I'm talking about). In the end, your undershirt needs to be able to breathe. And therein lies the problem...lack of separation between your base layer and your body armor!

In 2014 a Police Officer from a small town in the middle of New Jersey developed a product that would change the lives of police officers, first responders, military personnel and anyone who wears body armor forever!

The Maxx-Dri Vest, developed by Suresh Madhavan, a 13-year police veteran, is now worn by nearly 70,000 police officers, first responders and military personnel. It has received thousands of 5 STAR REVIEWS by those who wear it beneath their armor around the world. Getting five star reviews from police officers is no easy task! That alone tells you works THAT well! Thousands have said that The Maxx-Dri Vest for body armor ventilation and cooling is the best purchase they've ever made.

Madhavan went on to found New York City based 221B Tactical of which he is now CEO. The company offers a full line of innovative gear for Police Officers and First Responders which Madhavan invents and designs specifically for the needs of his fellow officers. Madhavan holds the thin blue line and the police brotherhood near and dear to his heart. His roots and time (13 years) in a patrol car has lead him to develop solutions to issues cops have been dealing with for decades. 

If you're looking for relief this summer as the temperatures rise and it's getting hot outside, you're gonna want to get yourself a Maxx-Dri Vest for body armor ventilation. Because when it comes to body armor ventilation, the proof is in the numbers... 70,000 satisfied officers and counting with thousands of 5 star reviews. The Maxx-Dri Vest works for body armor ventilation and cooling. It helps keep you cooler and drier...and ultimately safer while on the job.
