The History of The

RMA Legacy

red-line_below

RMA (which stands for the company founder’s daughters Renee, Meghan, and Alexis) was founded by Blake Waldrop, a US Marine (2001-2005) and a sworn police officer (2007-2013). Blake knows what it’s like to wear body armor and put your life into a product’s hands and it’s his mission to design and produce the highest quality armor at the most affordable prices.

Here at RMA, we did something unique; took the concept of a body armor plate and made changes to every detailed part. We changed materials, adhesives, ceramics, and more. Every part – down to the thread – was analyzed and made better through science and chemistry. The end result? A record-breaking ballistic plate that outperforms every competitor in the industry. Why go to great lengths to make such a product that’s costly, and labor-intensive? Because it’s our passion to make a product you can truly put your life behind.

RMA was borne of the BLUE and it's our passion to protect the BLUE
