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

Our latest body armour design (NATO STANAG 2920 V50 – 450m/s) is lightweight and comfortable, providing vital area protection whether walking around or excavating anti-personnel mines. The weight is designed to sit on the hips, with the fold-down flap shaped over the thighs with shaped inserts so that leg straps are not needed. Protection for the genitals can be folded back inside the armour cover when not wanted.

the Kestrel body armour

A generous chest pocket and a shoulder strap for clipping a radio make the armour suitable for deminers or supervisors.

The collar has been designed to interface with our SD Platinum visor or the SD Mask Visor, but can also be used with the SD Standard visor or SD Half visor. The relatively small collar allows the wearer an easier view of their feet without compromising safety.

With a multi-layer Kevlar/polyamide inner, it weighs less than 2.9kg. 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.
