Size & Weight Table

RECOMMENDATIONS FOR CHOOSING THE CORRECT VEST SIZE

  1. Take body measurements with a soft tape measure according to our guidelines below.

  2. Using the generalised sizing guideline tables, find the closest size based on your chest measurements. When between sizes, pick the lower one for an easier-to-conceal fit or the higher one for a looser fit.

  3. Confirm your armour coverage by unfolding the 'BODY COVERAGE MEASUREMENT CHART' in the first accordion at the bottom. Using the toggles above the chart, you can switch between our 'regular' and 'tall' body profiles and check the 'front' and 'back' panels, respectively.

  4. Ensure you're meeting your protective area requirements per the sizing regulations set by your agency or department by unfolding the 'ARMOUR COVERAGE AND WEIGHT TABLES' accordion at the bottom and locating your body profile and size.

HEIGHT: Run the measuring tape in a straight line from the top of the head perpendicular to the floor.

WAIST: Bend your torso to one side to find a natural indentation, revealing your natural waistline. Run tape around the natural waistline, keeping the tape measure parallel to the floor.

CHEST: Measure under the arms and around the fullest part of the chest at the front. Relax your arms at the sides while keeping the measuring tape parallel to the floor.

IMPORTANT: When choosing a size, you should always defer to the sizing regulations set by your agency or department. Never select a size that provides less coverage and/or protection than suggested or required by your agency or department.

Choosing a smaller sized vest than recommended by this sizing guide can prevent vital areas of your body from being covered and protected by the armour. This could result in severe injury and/or death.

BODY COVERAGE MEASUREMENT CHART

CHECK YOUR COVERAGE

Refer to this armour size chart and the reference illustration to check your coverage, confirm movement won't be impaired, and ensure all vital areas are protected.

The front panel's top terminating point for measurement D should sit 2.5-3 cm (1”) below the suprasternal notch, while the bottom terminating point should sit 2.5-3 cm (1") above your natural waistline.

All coverage dimensions are ±3% or ±100 cm², and all weights are ±5% or ±250g or whichever is greater.

Total coverage is the sum of the ballistic protective area of both the front and back panel.
Total weight includes the carrier along with the front and back ballistic panels.

TAURUS™ IN DETAIL

ARMOUR OVERVIEW

With the varying needs and different roles within security services, law enforcement and among military users, a one-size-fits-all solution to armour is inadequate. To alleviate this, we offer multiple armour layups built around unique design objectives for differing operational roles.

Our diverse layup options allow you to choose your ideal balance between price, weight, thickness, and protection to match your wear profile and threat mitigation requirements.

PALLAS™ LW

Built for common threats. Trauma mitigating, cost-effective, flexible and thin.

Our armour layups are available in standalone plate sizes and cuts here.

If you need help determining which armour layup is right for you or have questions regarding a specific layup, don't hesitate to get in touch with us using the email below.

PROTECTION TO THE CORE

Our soft armour inserts have an integrated pocket sewn into the cover, designed to accept our proprietary CARNA™ SA anti-trauma inserts and provide enhanced spine and sternum protection.

In the event a bullet strikes the sternum or the spine area of the vest, the insert will prevent critical injuries, such as rib or sternum fractures, alongside severe numbness from damaged vertebrae.

Constructed out of a consolidated layup of ultra-thin polypropylene fibers in a hardened matrix, the 2 mm thin insert doesn't restrict movement, and provides exceptionally efficient energy dispersal without the risk of fracturing or breaking during impact.

COMFORT, NO MATTER THE CIRCUMSTANCE

To increase wearing comfort and cooling performance, the TAURUS™ wraps its inner SPACETEC® liner around the front of the carrier, acting as an air duct and increasing effective circulation.

This wrapped liner acts as padding whenever the user assumes a shooting stance, eliminating any discomfort that typically occurs from pressing your biceps against the sides of a ballistic panel.

KEEP YOUR COOL FOR ALL-DAY WEAR

Featuring an internal liner based on Heathcoat's SPACETEC® volumetric mesh, the vest maintains breathability while promoting airflow and naturally regulating air distribution.

With embedded COOLMAX® fibers and ingrained silver ions, the liner draws moisture away from the body while also preventing the buildup of odour-causing bacteria.

In addition to keeping you cool and comfortable, SPACETEC® also provides excellent pressure distribution, eliminating possible hotspots and uncomfortable pinching zones while having remarkable compression recovery. This, in turn, yields excellent additional shock absorption, acting as an integrated trauma pad, minimising the effects of potential impacts.

WHERE CONCEALABILITY MEETS COMFORT

The TAURUS™ features edge-to-edge padded shoulder closures, providing a larger resting area than traditional concealable vests, making it especially suitable for multi-threat armour layups.

With full wrap-around shoulder closures terminating on the back panel, the TAURUS™ maintains its concealable profile and convex outline despite its double-stacked padding, making it as concealable as competing offerings but with significantly increased comfort.

INCREASED VERSATILITY WITH FUNCTIONAL EXTRAS

To increase stability and prevent the vest from shifting around or riding up when sitting, three included mesh tails can easily be added or removed from the carrier through on demand.

Additional upgrade paths to increase utility as a modular equipment-carrying platform for undercover operatives are underway and will be added when development has concluded.

INDUSTRY-LEADING WEAR RESISTANCE

We use a unique cover material made of lightweight, abrasion-resistant polyamide face fabric coated with a durable water-repellent. Our internal liner is TPU-based and features UV-blocking pigment to protect the ballistic materials from photooxidation caused by the sun's UV radiation, ensuring consistent performance throughout the insert's lifespan, no matter the environment.

Our two-stage sealing process ensures that every insert is safe from hydrolytic degradation from water, vapour, or general moisture. We accomplish this by pre-sealing the edges in custom-made moulds for consistency, sealing potential leaks from material bending and creasing before finishing the edges using an ultrasonic welding process to fuse the cover materials together.

DESIGNED IN EUROPE, MADE IN EUROPE

The TAURUS™ carrier is designed and manufactured by Anorak Hellas, a Greek family-owned manufacturer with over 40 years of experience manufacturing high-quality textile products.

Material-wise, it features genuine VELCRO® manufactured in Spain, a high-performance shell in the form of Dry Comfort XT® manufactured in Sweden and SPACETEC® lining materials manufactured in the United Kingdom, all sewn together with high-quality thread made in Italy.

We manufacture all available armour packages in Denmark using cutting-edge European and US-made ballistic materials from industry leaders within each respective material category.
