Police Officer Invents Breathable Ventilation Vest to Keep You Cool, Dry and Less Sweaty Under Your Body Armor

If you wear body armor there’s no need to explain how hot and miserable it can get. Between the sweat-soaked undershirt, indescribable odor and itch/rash caused by bacteria build up, it’s no wonder why some are tempted to not wear their body armor at all. But in today’s day and age, not wearing your body armor is NOT an option.

How it came to be

This is precisely what lead 13 year Police Veteran, Suresh Madhavan, to develop a product that has completely transformed the experience and mindset around wearing body armor. And now his invention, The Maxx-Dri Vest for body armor ventilation, cooling and comfort, is being used by police officers, first responders and operators in all 50 U.S. states as well as 31 other countries.

“I’ve been wearing their (Maxx-Dri) ventilation vest to work for 2 years. It’s a must have for me now and I won’t wear my armor without it. I recommend this to anyone wearing body armor for work.” -Officer Austin Decker (SC)

The Maxx-Dri Vest has 5 Star Reviews from the nearly 140,000 users (as of the date of this article) world wide. Five star reviews don’t come easy from such harsh critics and demanding users such as police and military. In fact, it was the thousands of 5 Star Reviews that caught the eye of The United States Military. Custom Maxx-Dri Vests are now in development for soldiers in The U.S. and abroad.

What's in it for you?

When it comes down to it, staying cooler, drier and more comfortable while wearing body armor is a matter of safety. When you’re not focusing on how miserable you feel you’re able to focus on the threats at hand. Truth be told, you can’t put a price on your safety and making it home.

“I used to go home with my undershirt completely soaked. Since using the (Maxx-Dri) vest my shirts are dry and my vest no longer stinks.” -Officer Gabriel P. (TX)

The Maxx-Dri Vest by 221B Tactical comes with a limited Lifetime Warranty, is machine washable (hangs dry...does not even go in the dryer), and comes with a “No Sweat Guarantee.” If for any reason you’re not 100% satisfied with your purchase, 221B Tactical INSISTS that you send it back to them (for those who purchased it through them directly) for a full refund. They’ll even cover the return shipping cost. But it doesn’t end there. Upon receiving your return, they’re gonna mail you a free gift as a token of their appreciation for you trying the product.

“I used to have significant neck and shoulder pain from wearing body armor. Since using the 221B Maxx-Dri vest my pain is completely gone. The cushioning of the vest is just as incredible as the ventilation it provides. I won’t work a shift without it, even in the winter.” -Officer Gary S. (CA)

The proof is in the numbers

If you’re sick and tired and being soaked in sweat all day, hate peeling that awful smelling shirt off your body at the end of your shift and are tired of dealing with pain, itchiness and rashes, The Maxx-Dri Vest for body armor ventilation, cooling and comfort was made for you. And according to about 140,000 of your will not regret it.
