ABOUt dayton Armor
How we started
Dayton Armor, LLC started off in 2010 as a small Research and Development company. Our projects included lightweight body armor for the U.S. Department of Defense. After several years of research we started producing lightweight armor for our Special Operations Forces.
Why Dayton Armor?
We make the lightest body armor in the world. Our armor is used by the most elite Special Forces on the planet. We are proud to be able to offer this proven technology to our First Responders and Civilians.
"Absolutely awesome armor. I had steel plates before and the weight difference is completely amazing. Great people working at Dayton Armor and care about protecting their customers." Michael S.
"I highly recommend Dayton Armor. Their products and staff are top notch. I have been wearing the ICW AR Plates (front and back) with my lllA body armor now for two weeks and don’t even notice a difference in comfort. We were fortunate enough to see what these plates can withstand in person which is truly amazing being that they only weigh 1 lb each." Sean G.
"The manageable weight and thickness of Dayton Armor plates allows me to slide my plates in along side my issued armor. I can wear these all day long comfortably, even when getting in and out of the cruiser. It’s nice to be able to wear a vest with such durability 24/7." Jordan J.
