a Q u i n o
Wearable Technology I The Future of Fashion
IS IT LEGAL TO BUY BODY ARMOR ?
In general , yes for “ law abiding citizens”. A felony conviction makes a possession of body armor illegal under federal and in many states. We have had civilians clients with many different needs for use of our Body Armor so we understand the needs example law enforcements or military. We cannot ship to Connecticut, or even accept credit cards billed there...for civilians.
Our policy is to only sell to law-abiding adults who have a lawful purpose ( A parent or guardian may buy for a minor with a legitimate need. ) Residents of Connecticut are prohibited from buying Body Armor unless the sale is FACE to FACE ( or unless the buyer is a police officer , law enforcements or military )
FLYING WITH READY TO WEAR BODY ARMOR ?
At the US Transportation Security Administration, Body Armor is NOT on the list of prohibited items. However:
The prohibited and permitted items list is not intended to be all-inclusive ans is updated as necessary.
To ensure everyone's security the screener may determine that an item not on this chart is prohibited.
The best thing before checking in is detach the modular ballistic panel protection and place it in your carry on bag, and avoid hassles then put it back in and insert the panel after your clearance.
WHERE IS OUR BODY ARMOR MANUFACTURED ?
Our product line is manufacture and made in NEW YORK , USA

WHAT ARE THE NIJT STANDARDS FOR BODY ARMOR ?
There are always a trade off between more protection and wear-ability or cocealabilty as the level of protection chosen is a personal choice. Better to get a higher protection level that you will wear consistently, that you can wear.
The best VEST for you is the one you are actually wearing when shot! and the biggest difference between LEVELS is the amount of BLUNT TRAUMA impact protection.
BALLISTIC DETAILS FOR BALLISTIC PROTECTION LEVELS AS FOLLOWS:
- LEVEL II A-generally 1/4 "de grosor o 0.635 cm, might be the best choice if thinness , comfort and conceal-ability are the most important factors, e.g., if wearing for long periods, or with a lot of movement.
- LEVEL II - generally 1/2" thick or 12.7000 mm,, is often worn by police officers. A great balance between blunt trauma protection , versus cost and thickness / conceal-ability/comfort. What we recommend most often...
- LEVEL III A - , generally 3/4" thick or 19.0500 mm, is little thicker. stiffer, heavier and more expensive, but will stop more of the uncommon pistols threats, for example it is tested for 9 mm submachine gun and 44 Magnums. Plus it gives you more blunt trauma impact protection.
BULLETPROOF vs BULLET RESISTANT ?
Being shot carries risks, trauma and severe bruising, serious, internal injury or even death could occur. Furthermore ballistic panels cannot protect what they cannot cover. The garment does not provide any ballistic protection without the ballistic panels.
By using Spectra, Kevlar, Dyneema , Twaron etc., or in combinations in conjunction with a thermoplastic film system, its possible to design and integrate lightweight ballistic panels into an article of clothing. These ballistic panels find extensive use in not only use by military and law enforcement agencies around the world, but by private citizens as well.
By using the latest state of the art technologies available today, our mission is to offer the highest quality bullet resistant products at a competitive prices, responding to customer's needs on a timely basis.
As an example Spectra material having each multiple series of individual layers consisting of four plies unidirectional , crossplied at 0"/90"/0"/90 and sandwich in thermoplastic film which is lighter in weight, provided an excellent comfort and flexibility for prolonged wear, less blunt trauma, reduces thickness and greatly increases ballistic stopping capability while affording NIJ -06 performance and can stop against higher energy bullets (i.e. 44 SJHP magnum with a1555 V50 (fps) and 357 JSP magnum with a 1645 (fts) or 9mm FMJ with a 1705 (fts) @ 0.76 (fps).
By buying Doo Aquino's Body Armor, you assume ALL risks of use or misuse and agree not to hold us liable in any way. In addition, YOU are responsible to ensure that your ballistic panels are position inside the carrier WITHIN, if applicable ( check the inside vest panel )
