SD Hornet apron - with a NATO STANAG 2920 V50 of 450m/s

Our 2012 body armour is called the Hornet. Designed to provide protection that exceeds the up-to-date IMAS requirements, the Hornet is comfortable to wear while squatting, kneeling or walking. The weight is carried on the wearer’s hips, and the front of the thighs are protected by flaps with the SD (design registered) shaped polycarbonate inserts.

Hornet armour in sizes

The armour is available in Large, Medium and Small sizes.

Hornet fromside and back

The Hornet has a generous chest pocket and two collars designed to interface with the SD visor
range, so providing secure face protection while avoiding restricting downward vision.
Broad webbing straps and quality buckles make the hornet comfortable and easy to wear.

With a multi-layer Kevlar/polyamide inner covered by a washable Cordura® textured nylon outer that is exceptionally longlasting and resistant to tears and abrasions, the SD medium sized Hornet armour weighs less than 2.9kg.

Colours may vary between dye lots.

Your logo, radio-clip straps of other refinements can be added. Contact us to discuss your needs.

NOTE: Like most other PPE, SD armours are designed to be water-resistant. Users should avoid getting the core of any armour wet because this can reduce the protection it offers. If the core of armour gets wet, allow the garment to dry naturally before use. Do not tumble-dry or expose to heaters.
