NTOA Logo GoldTacprogear BLACK (TPG), the exclusive line of American-made products offered by TPG, is proud to announce that the Citadel™ 64 Series hard armor plates have received the highest score of 5 out of 5 from the National Tactical Officers Association (NTOA) Member Tested and Recommended Program. TPG has the privilege of displaying the prestigious gold NTOA Member Tested and Recommended Logo in their marketing materials.

The testing officer remarked, “The Citadel™ 64 Series is head and shoulders above the plates that are currently issued by my agency. Offering the same ballistic protection, they are half the weight and half the thickness, but actually have a greater coverage area. They have a slight form fitting curvature, helping to contour the plates to the body. I would highly recommend taking a look at this product if you are in the market for new plates.”

Made in the USA, the Citadel™ 64 Series has undergone Independent Special Threat Testing conducted in accordance with an abbreviated and modified NIJ Standard 0101.06 and Tacprogear internal Testing Protocol. TPG Internal testing was conducted at the state-of-the-art TPG ballistic test range in Miami, FL. The Ultra-Lightweight hard body armor plates are made from polyethylene and ceramic with a protective cover made of polyurea or Cordura with welded seams.
