RMA Armament’s Contego Concealable IIIa Vest (The “CCV”) is one of the most advanced level 3a soft body armor vests on the market today, boasting lightweight NIJ Certified IIIa body armor for maximum concealability. In Latin, “Contego” is a verb that means to shield – precisely what the CCV is designed to no matter the ongoing operation.

The CCV is even more concealable than the Protego Concealable IIIa Soft Body Armor Vest with a weight of 1.18 lbs psf. Combine its top rated IIIa soft body armor with its 10×12 plate pockets on the front and rear, and this vest is option from RMA that should be at the top of your concealable armor wishlist. We recommend up-armoring the Contego with the Lightweight Body Armor SRT Plate. Weighing just 2.5lbs, the SRT plate will turn this Level 3a bulletproof vest into a rifle rated kit against many common rifle rounds.

Contego Bulletproof Vest Features

The Contego Concealable Level 3a Soft Body Armor Vest features a moisture-wicking, anti-microbial inner liner which draws moisture away from the body for faster cool-down while maintaining its lightweight breathe-ability and water repellent qualities.  This vest includes NIJ Certified soft armor inserts that provide full torso coverage, a 4-point adjustable strapping system and side opening design. The CCV also features heavy duty shoulder straps to accommodate the added weight that 10×12 ballistic plates can add to the system. Without 10×12 plates, the CCV boasts a ballistic thinness of just .25″, which makes this concealable vest perfect for all day use.

The Contego Concealable IIIa Vest discreetly protects the wearer from all common hand gun rounds – .357, 9mm, .45ACP and .44 magnum, etc.

  1. Verified Buyer (verified owner)

    Works as advertised. The vest doesn’t conceal perfectly and definitely will not conceal if you have 1155s inserted inside. That being said, I’m happy with the purchase and wear it everyday for work
