Verco Materials UrbanShieldMH ballistic vests originated as a spin-off of high-performance boron carbide technology developed at the Georgia Institute of Technology. After a number of years of DOD-supported (Army Research Laboratory, Army Natick, NavAir, DARPA) development, we are pleased to offer a unique product for rifle protection of US law enforcement personnel.

The armor is based on an imbricated (nested together) pattern of carbon fiber-wrapped boron carbide tiles, encapsulated with and backed by layers of soft ballistic fabric. UrbanShieldMH is backed by numerous US and international patents, rigorous testing at nationally-certified ballistics laboratories and NIJ Level III certification.

The armor, which draws into and molds to the body, is remarkably comfortable, permits freedom of movement, shows enhanced multi-hit capabilities\ and has customizable, extended and continuous coverage.

Every individual in law enforcement has a different role to play. For Verco’s extended coverage systems, there are no standard sizes, no standard coverage; the armor panels, and their carriers (outer tactical vests), are custom-made to the measurements and needs of each member of the law enforcement team.

The vests are manufactured in the heart of Atlanta, Georgia.


  • Drop-in replacement for hard plates (shooter’s and rectangular cuts) in standard carriers.
  • Conforms to and moves with male and female torsos.
  • Comfortable, lightweight, durable against rough handling, remarkable multi-hit capability, low back face deformations.
