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

Always aiming to achieve comfort and value for money, our Hawk body-armour (NATO STANAG 2920 V50 – 450m/s) is versatile enough for deminers and supervisors, providing vital area protection whether walking around or excavating anti-personnel mines. It is lighter and more comfortable than alternatives, and includes several special design features.

hawk apron

With a multi-layer Kevlar/polyamide inner covered by a washable outer designed to be exceptionally longlasting and resistant to abrasions, tears and scuff, it weighs less than 2.5kg.

After adjustment to suit the individual, the shoulder straps should not need to be undone again.

The Hawk includes genital-protection that can be worn when wanted, and folded away inside the armour cover when it is not wanted.

The armour cover is made using Cordura® textured nylon which is washable, exceptionally long-lasting and resistant to abrasions, tears and scuffs, so makes an excellent outer to the high-performance core of the armour. Colours may vary between dye lots.

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.
