Overt stab vests are worn over the clothing so they can be seen, whereas covert are worn under the clothing. This is a general purpose overt stab vest suitable for wearers doing all sorts of job roles.

Many overt stab vests on the market don’t include spike resistance (standard SP1), and it’s crucial to note that our overt stab vest also protects from syringes, including hypodermic needles.

We also have other styles of overt stab vest available- see our main stab vests page. They include a hi-vis version and a “duty”-style similar to what the Police may wear, as well as a bodywarmer-style for a more casual look.
