Here’s the RTS TACTICAL Gear You Need to Know About

A brand built for tactical pros and the prepared. Here’s the gear that caught our eye.

By Brent Hannify – July 22, 2022

RTS Tactical’s mission is to empower those who put their lives on the line in defense of country and community, outfitting them with the best gear to effectively do their jobs and return home safe at the end of the day.

Originally conceived in 2015 as a resource for law enforcement, military, and government contractors seeking high-end protection gear, RTS Tactical is continuing to innovate in the ballistic protection space, testing, retesting, and certifying gear capable of meeting any challenge.

As one of just 10 body armor manufacturers in the United States, RTS Tactical is proud to provide made-in-America ballistic protection out of their factory in Miami, FL. Now with GovX ID enabled at checkout, here’s the gear that’s destined for your loadout.

Level III+ Rifle Special Threats Mini Shield

Surprisingly, many department-issued handheld ballistic shields are not rated to provide any protection against rifle fire. Law enforcement pros must be prepared to defend against threats from AR-15s. RTS’s Mini Shield is made of Level III+ rated steel, designed to counter the small, fast-moving 5.56, M855, and Steel Core 7.62 x 39 rounds that have the tendency to punch clean through some armor. This handheld ballistic shield is less than a quarter-inch think and encapsulated in a Polyurea coating to ensure long-term durable use, and the heavy duty handle and quick-release strap system lets you move and operate with ease.

Hero’s Level IIIA NIJ 06 Concealable Vest

Developed for law enforcement professionals, this vest is low profile enough to be worn by regular civilians seeking peace of mind in a dangerous world. The level IIIA front and back armor panels provide full wrap-around protection, and is designed to be worn underneath your clothes, though it’s perfectly comfortable and effective when thrown over a shirt as well. The LevelIIIA NIJ-certified armor can stop all common handgun rounds including .357 Magnum, .357SIG, 9mm, .40 S&W, 45ACP and 44 Magnum and .38 Special. It also stops most shotgun rounds including slugs and buckshot.

Sleek Carrier

The latest addition to the RTS Tactical arsenal is the newly re-engineered RTS tactical Advanced Sleek 2.0 Plate Carrier. Strategically designed as a lower profile carrier, this versatile and comfortable carrier offers full ballistic protection and can be thrown on easily over one’s clothes. The elastic side construction keeps the armor inserts snug against the body even at a full sprint. Fits standard 10x12 plates including Level lllA Soft, Level lll & lll+ Steel, and Level IV Ceramic. It’s a robust and rigorously tested carrier built for the prepared and the vigilant.
