I’m leaving only two stars because I would give them 5-stars for the medic kit, but zero stars for the customer service.
The medic kit itself is great, very well-designed dangler pouch with quick access to the essentials. I repacked it with my own IFAK items and set aside the sealed “modules” it came with as spares for later (since they’re sealed).
However, like the other reviewer I received the wrong ballistic insert and noticed the price increase some time AFTER I had ordered. I ordered one with level IIIa, but received level IIa, and this is a very big difference in performance as well as liability purposes when you’re wearing armor on-the-clock. It seems they decided they weren’t charging enough at first, and when they bumped the price they shorted those of us who ordered at the lower price by sending us inferior armor. When I emailed I received a response initially, offering to “allow” me to purchase the IIIa insert THAT I ORIGINALLY ORDERED for an addition $50. I reluctantly agreed, but never heard back from them after that and no transaction took place. They do not appear to offer these inserts as individual items on their website.
Very disappointed with this outcome, this was not the first item I purchased from UARM and my previous experience was fantastic and I recommended them highly to some colleagues, one of whom recently ordered several expensive items from them including their armored puffer-vest and a plate carrier. Hopefully he doesn’t get screwed like I did.
If anybody at UARM is reading these, I’d still like to receive the correct armor insert that I ordered, feel free to email me about it.
This pouch is a fantastic product, however, I’m leaving a 3 star review for customer service. I ordered this pouch in a Lvl IIIa protection and it shipped from Europe with level II insert. The price has been changed on the website. I have inquired via email for a change request, but nothing. I also asked a question about this product before I ordered, and no response. Due to the mistake, and non-responsiveness to the inquiries, I can’t fully recommend this product because you may not reliably receive what you ordered.
That being said, the design and ruggedness of this pouch is excellent. There is no other product I’m aware of in US that compares. Offering Medical gear and also armoring up, that alone was worth the price. My old IFAK pouch was large and stuck out like a tumor on my kit. There was no where to put it where it wasn’t in the way and I could get to it easily. This pouch solved the problem. The included medical supplies are well sealed and while I haven’t opened them to inspect, they seem robust and as advertised. The shears included are adequate, but you could always replace them with your own pair. I was able to also stuff this pouch with some additional medical supplies in addition to what was provided. An exterior pouch could also accommodate extra tools. The velcro fasteners are well designed and you have the ability to pull a tab and get whatever emergency kit you need. There is even a loop in the back so you can secure this to your belt so it’s not flapping on your stomach when you run. Very well thought out. Would have rated 5 stars if not for bad customer experience and quality control.
I bought one to place in my collage backpack waited quite a bit on them. They admins are really fussy and I like that this doesn’t cause a lot of suspicion.
I use these for my climbing and trekking trips and it has already paid off. A fist-size rock fell on my head and just bounced off, slight scrape on the forearm.
A very important camping tool for me. It’s easy to carry and easy to change the bladder inside. And it can be strapped safely to the pack.
Once my company of fully grown adult men finished with the puns, we field-tested the holsters. They are very easy to attach to the belt, and can become covert in an instant, which comes quite handy if you don’t mention that you need to cover your USPP.
Very handy, and the line can be attached without pulling out the device. I don’t believe that there would be any modern radio that wouldn’t fit, but the older ones might be a bit too wide.
The shirts came after the plates and carriers for some reason, but no matter. It’s a surprisingly high quality shirt.
I ordered this in a much larger batch and was really surprised that it’s really a good baseball hat. Kudos guys!
Can’t believe I found this by literally googling sharp looking cap… not the hero we want but the hero we need I guess.
These are much more comfortable than I though they will be. The straps ain’t grabby and they hold in place even when you run.
Honestly, I didn’t know it was armored when I ordered it. It is a good belt, good size, solid straps, and easy on the hips. The armor for me is just a bonus.
I keep this on my side with the mag holsters under it. Works really good and doesn’t obstruct me when not in use. I recommend.
Upgrading from a Level III and a Level III+ AR500 plate combo to these plates helped me drop 11+lbs (~5Kg). Mobility vs. firepower means a lot when you can raise your arms without experiencing pain in your shoulders, back, and traps. I cannot recommend these plates, or the great customer service at UARM Protection enough. I will be purchasing from them in the future, for sure!
I found this piece to be very functional. I can place it on the helmet in seconds and it allows me to keep coms and everything up there and not around my neck.
A very functional peace of gear. I don’t know how much it helps camouflage because the helmet is already stealthy, but it helps attach the comms better.
Best thing ever. I am a receptionist at a hotel and they don’t let us wear normal vests, I keep this in my locker and no one’s the wiser.
This is the best way to carry your radio. I just take the baggie everywhere and slap it on myself or any Velcro surface when I want to leave it. I just hope not to forget the radio somewhere.
As a recommendation from a friend we bought these for our hotel staff. Comes in very handy as they can all be kept on a wall in the staff room and taken on rounds when needed.
My firm usually has guys on patrol without too much ammo and armor, so it is a nice thing that they can just get to the car and get ammoed up when they need it.
I’m not a fan of Velcro and it always looked flimsy to me, but these hold perfectly and you really need to press in to rip them off when you don’t need the mags any more.
Our firm got only half a dozen to test. There is a slight issue with disposing of empty mags, as you need to angle the corner. But as far as usefulness goes, this holster has few equals.
I did need to wait two weeks for this to arrive, but I like the product quite a bit. The pads are really strong and they keep everything as if it’s a single piece.
I work in maritime rescue and often wore my backpack on the front as I only wear a sidearm. This one works perfectly because I can get geared up in a matter of seconds and everything is right there.
The future is here. Lightweight, incredibly tough. I cannot understand my anyone would still run steel plates. UHMWPE has been in use in industrial applications for many decades and well proven for many applications. I am looking forward to UARM’s neck, collar bone, and deltoid protectors. Superb product.
I’m still new to additional armor modules, but we tend to find a lot of makeshift explosives on the job so it’s a must. I find them easy to carry.
I bought this one after the LPC from the same maker and I prefer the LPC. I don’t care about the release, and everything else is the same.
This is now the go to for the whole company. They are lighter even than our old Level 3 plates, and they offer more protection. Win-win!
I used this type of plate in the army, and I like having it now that I’m back. I keep it in my carrier under the seat, you never know when you’ll need it.
I’m very happy with this shirt. We are seeing a lot more outdoor maintenance now, so I hope this keeps me cool as the hear rises.
Fits in my PC perfectly and it’s not as heavy as people say. Hope I won’t need it, but I’m more than glad I have it.
This is my main carrier. It has excellent specs and I can adjust it depending on what I need. I strap a body cam to the vest, making it easier to operate.
It looked silly when we got them, but this stuff works. We used them with the WPC and the LPC, and in both cases the up the comfort a mile.
This is some pro stuff right here.
It did take a while to arrive, but it seems like a high quality belt. Not even 2lbs for a 3a, that’s some very good specs.
Everything you need, nothing you don’t.
Extremely impressed with the quality and layout of this vest. Panels are ergonomically shaped for a canine torso with excellent coverage of the vital organs while allowing full shoulder movement where many vests are bulky and awkward for the dog. Stitching is superb, panels are arranged tightly butted against each other with no gap or overlap, maximizing protection with no wasted bulk. Each armor panel is individually labeled with specs, serial number, and warranty information. This product EASILY outshines competing vests that cost 2-3x as much and are not as well thought-out.
This is amazing, I work with BEAR division clearing out homeless people that loot run down places, and lemme tell ya this thing makes me feel snug and secure and holds my plates the best. Im sad I got a 9×18 slugged into it and now its torn open but other than that it works great!
Everything is very open with a clear explanation of the issues.
It was really informative. Your website is very helpful.
really fast to get on especially now when passed to light III plate that are really light, just need a sec to pull the PC on with all the gear
got these for the whole crew
it is excellent
preparation time is cut in half and most of the gear can be on the belt and PC to begin with
moving to these completely after a short test and I couldn’t be happier)
visibly lighter than the last model we used and those few pounds really make a difference
lazer MOLLE is slightly tricky to see, especially in black, but the vest itself is very good
This is not nearly as heavy as I thought. I’m not a big guy and I can easily pack two for hours with no issue.
lighter than my shirt under it. IDK how the pouches will fit, but so far it might be my favorite option for a PC
It needed about two weeks to arrive, but I’m very happy with this belt. Space is adequate and it breathes well
like to have a middle row of molle though
This pack is on the small side, so I need to think about what I will place in. But, when it comes to surveying my property on foot, this is the go-to now
it took more to arrive 😡 but…
it’s easy to attach, fills up the gap, and has a very useful pocket
Fighting the urge to test my AR on this, but that will wait for the spare.
Very comfortable. Woudln’t want to carry if for the whole day, but it only takes a second to strap it on when exiting the truck
needed to wait a bit to get these but they are perfect for my company… took a shot at one from my AR15 didn’t budge an inch
I do surveying so I need to place my computer on all kinds of surfaces. So far this case protected it from everything Washington weather had thrown at me
We do house clearance and these boots were suggested to me by a work friend. So far they are awesome, very comfortable and easy on the ankles 👍
Take this vest hunting, or to WalMart for that matter 😁 It looks nice and is quite comfy, so I wear it like a normal vest
For some reason I needed to wait more than two weeks for this one, but it was well worth it. Does everything as my army pack did, and more.
Our company ordered a larger batch and it did take longer to arrive, but the guy at CS was very nice and helped us figure out the ETA. This is now our standard vest and our company is growing, which says a lot about the quality of the product.
One of the best bags. Light and flexible. I can spread it open to find exactly what I need when I need it
We work park security and were waiting for these for a while. Works perfectly with robust phones we use, and beats the pocket any day
obvious choice for any K9 squad
especially useful when the dog is dealing with other animals
obvious choice for any K9 squad especially useful when the dog is dealing with other animals
aparently it’s not heavy enough because my GF stole it inside a day of arrival, lol
I was amazed how flexible these pads are 🙀 Even the small ones you can almost fold. I did test one with a 1911 and there wasn’t even a hint of penetration
Bought these in bulk for testing and so far they proved to be amazing. Still waiting for one to rip, but it seems that I’ll need an AR for that job
tough, sturdy, and dries very quickly
loved the Metropolis and love this redesign
guess they were out of stock, because I waited 3 weeks for the bag to arrive 😑😑😑 but it is probably the best duffle bag I ever owned
probably the only way to carry a plate under your shirt
still visible when you close but you not able to notice it from long distance
it’s for peer security under new guidelines
how annoying these can get, this one is excellent and after an hour you don’t even know it’s there
didn’t know what to think when they arrived, because it looked ”Army-like” and not army issue
seems that someone who served did make these because they work probably better then the molle vest
Probably my best PC. It has all of the options of an army vest but you can wear it with a soft plates all day without it bothering
Use this cap when running and there is no better thing. Like a baseball cap that takes in sweat like a bandana. Easy to clean.
It missed my first camping weekend due to a late arrival, but I brought it with me last time and there is an astonishing difference. Much warmer, much more comfortable, and easy to carry
Requires a bit of fiddling when you are organizing everything. But, after it’s done, it’s probably the smallest full aid kit
good thing for testing armor
Bought these to shield robot parts from shrapnel and I am very happy with how they work. Even after a pad is hit, it won’t lose integrity. We had shrapnel hit the same pad three or four times and the hardware on the inside was always unharmed
so easy to attach
I work alone and not needing someone to adjust my vest is a must
You need some time to adjust to the weight, but the mechanism works good and the protection area is more than enough
very comfortable for such thin pants, and very durable
I have an open mag holder from the same company and it fits my needs better. This is more for some active role than for patrol
For some reason the part needed more to arrive. But it works as described and weighs next to nothing. The clips really help with the adjustment. Good stuff!
Switched to this because I use my bike to go fishing now. Perfect for lures and spare line, and you can store the knives safely on the bottom
Love that fact that it is so easy to attach. This should be the industry standard, lol
I work alone and not needing someone to adjust my PC is a must
On one side this feels like I’m wearing a book on my chest how light it is. On the other, I shot 4 round of a .44 and there is barely a buckle on the back.
works as promised
didn’t need to shave for this balaclava to fit perfectly
my regular issue vest was killing me, so this came as a blessing
this one is light, comfortable and I can wear a jacket over it not problem
It goes over the ears so I can’t wear this with my N95 mask easily. But, it does reflect the sun and makes cooling easier.
Waited about three weeks for these pouches to arrive, but as far as the product goes it’s a-ok
Solid quality and good straps, that’s all that we were looking for
love the fact that colors from the plate carrier and the tshirt match. hope to see more merch soon!
You can attach it both permanently and in a situation.Such a small change made all the difference
It is a product of strong and good quality.
However, this wallet couldn’t carry many cards because of the small number of pockets.
And I think it’s because of the corona virus, the shipping took more than a month 🙁
as a black man I have an axe to grind with your naming department, but the rucksack as it is in one of the best job-packs I’ve ever owned
Velcro on the top is very strong, so I propose patches for those who don’t use that side
Ok, not Sahara, but South California, and its already reaping benefits 😅
Keeps the skin cool and protected when on patrol and I don’t sweat as much
Remember to attach them ASAP. I lost one out of three the second day they arrived
This is my main work shirt! I work doors in several clubs, and wise guys are a plenty This keeps me safe and doesn’t scare the customers🌚
We use these at work for inspections and they have proven invaluable. Pressurized bolts can pass through a normal hard hat like butter, but not through this one 🤘
did need to wait two weeks to get this plate, but I’m more than happy with the result. especially with the summer coming, I’ll just fit this in my hard place carrier which I rarely used so far
so easy to clip on and adjust that I often do it on the fly
Satisfied. 4.5/5 stars. It doesn’t fit everything as the regular medpack, but holds like 85% of what you need for half the weight
My wife bought me this as a gift, and I must tell you that it does feel better when you know your gut is protected
the utility is nice, but we are having some issues with the waist size
for some of the guys we needed the extra cummerbund attachment
Used these for the Alaskan outback. Very soft, very warm, and altogether comfortable.
GOOD ONE! I LEFT THE BAG WHOLE NIGHT IN THE RAIN WHEN CAMPING AND THERE WAS NO DAMAGE TO INSIDES AT ALL!
I have the WPC from UARM and I took this one because of the MOLLE loops
advise everyone to carry the ventilation pad under it, as it is more comfortable, and with that pad and two pouches I don’t think it passes 2 lb
We wait about two weeks for it to arrive, but it is one of my favorite models. Very light, very comfortable
Usually use it on my MCVF, but sometimes I need to go plain and I found out that these come in real nice when you need to cover everything. Obrigada!
It’s okay. The attachment on the back for military webbing- I don’t use that. Seems generally sturdy so far
It’s about the size of a cool box, can fit ten of our MREs, so not a full case, but it is extra easy to transport
very cool pc
should’ve taken one in black
so far so good. extra light and slides on like a glove
Too many bells and whistles. The case is okay and does its purpose, but I often mistake it for a documents bag
full camping gear for 3 people, with only the tent strapped on the top
Didn’t expect the padding. Bonus!
This one now goes straight on the chest. It’s on my paramedic vest and makes it 10x faster to take them out
Need a female model guys! We exist and don’t have the same thighs. This is a good piece, but I needed to tighten it up!
My dog is called Rambo. Why I bought this is self-explanatory. 5 stars!
Waited about three weeks for these new helmets to arrive. Basically it’s the same as the HCBC but now as a single shell without holes, which is a very big step in the right direction
I have both these and the doubles, and I prefer the single-mag ones quite a bit. Most missions don’t require a full layout and I like having the option of putting on just the amount I need
I really wanted to test this PC out when I saw it, and it didn’t disappoint. The logic behind it is sound, and it makes it really easy to slide a plate once everything else is on you. I’m sold!
Took about 3 weeks to arrive, but these are perfect! Very light in comparison to older plates, and I did some testing on one and it works even better than advertised.
They are surprisingly soft. I have a pair of UARM crossovers and these are much softer and lighter. They tend to be my daily driver now.
haven’t yet had the time to test it, but it’s really comfortable and keeps the OC holster up high like a sports shooter
Got it in black, with the belt and vest. Snug as a bug
Simple is good. As I work in a good community as a guard I usually don’t carry a spare mag, but this is a nice way to keep it constantly on stand-by
keep my doctor’s kit inside, as well as most meds that don’t need to be cool
not heavy, and my glock fits as well
Fits well on my PC and attaches some of the tech stuff I often need. It’s not really for heavy loads, but does a good job for the essentials
Literally the first day I tried these, a shell run back and hit them. Not even a scratch. I’ll be keeping this pair as lucky.
The added rails for additional gear as just as sturdy as were the bolts on the previous model 👍
I can’t testify on the structural integrity, but I get the logic of having a single piece
Really good sweatshirt! I didn’t expect that, though it was just merch. Good show, it is really comfy
Have an UMP from UARM as well, works better for single mags. Seems too loose like this, don’t like returning an empty in the same place
If you want to have a covert mag at hand for CC, this is my recommendation. Very light, very slim- like the mag is floating in place
using this one in my car and still have the MOLLE on my vest, but I think that might change
They took about two weeks to arrive, but apart from that no complaints
Very easy to use and came in very handy. We bought them in both colors. Recommend black because the tan ones are really bright and stain easily
Not obtrusive at all, and I pray to God that is the only thing I will ever need to say about armor like this
client wanted us to ‘wear hard plates on patrol at all times’, which made these plates a godsend. It is a construction place so these are more than enough and can sleep in them for all I care as both as about three pounds in total
