Safariland, a BAE Systems business, proudly introduces the next generation of ABA Xtreme body armor: the XT02 Series.

The new ABA Xtreme XT02 Series is NIJ Standard-0101.06 certified and features an advanced Berry compliant hybrid design that incorporates our most innovative armor technologies, resulting in body armor with the greatest level of protection against a wide array of both NIJ Type and special threat rounds. The new Xtreme XT02 Series hybrid design combines Twaron, Honeywell Gold Shield, and exclusive Dyneema ballistic material.

“The ABA Xtreme XT02 represents the perfect balance of performance, comfort, and value,” said Tim O’Brien, Category Director, Concealable Armor. “The Xtreme XT02, with its use of Safariland-exclusive Dyneema material in a lightweight powerful design, carries on the proud tradition of Xtreme body armor.”

The new Xtreme XT02 is only available through Safariland exclusive Armor Advantage distributors and is offered in IIA, II, and IIIA threat levels. All Safariland concealable armor models are certified using NIJ-approved size templates C1 and C5, which offer law enforcement agencies the widest range of production sizes available. In addition, the Xtreme XT02 comes standard with a Universal AJ Carrier.
