      Nice hoodie but $230+ is ridiculous.

      Best sweater on the market!

      Love it! I'm glad I order 2 xl and it fit perfectly. Comfortable riding on my Indian scout rogue I feel fit for this bike. That way I don't look funny in sportbike jacket on cruiser. Best thing is zipper on side pockets! Also Comfortable. Doesn't look like you have pads or anything.

      What is an Armored Hoodie?

      Defining the Armored Hoodie

      Our hoodie is your classic, comfortable sweatshirt but with a twist: it’s engineered with added reinforcements such as aramid abrasion resistant lining and strategic padding. These innovative aspects are adeptly woven into the fabric, offering a sophisticated defense against impacts and harsh wear, all while flaunting a sleek, everyday look. The NBT armored hoodie is the epitome of undercover protection, designed for those who want safety without compromising on style or comfort.

      Differences from Traditional Hoodies

      The distinguishing factor between armored and traditional hoodies lies in their intent and construction. Standard hoodies are often made for comfort and style with materials like cotton and polyester blends, meant to provide warmth and a relaxed fit. In contrast, our armored hoodies incorporate robust fabrics such as aramid or other abrasion-resistant textiles, along with CE Level One padding or armor plates positioned at critical points of potential impact. This advanced approach to design positions the armored hoodie as a staple for those who crave an extra layer of security in their everyday wear.

      What are the key features?

      Materials Used in Construction

      Our armored hoodies are a testament to durability, primarily thanks to the aramid fibers lining each garment. Aramid is a class of heat-resistant and strong synthetic fibers used in aerospace and military applications for its robust properties. It brings unmatched resistance to abrasion and tearing, making it an ideal material for protective clothing. 

      Our aramid-lined hoodie is designed to offer superior protection against the rigors of everyday adventures. Not only is it resilient in the face of challenging conditions, but it also provides the wearer with climate-adaptive comfort. Whether braving a chilly breeze or a sunny day, the NBT Bodyguard aramid-lined armored hoodie maintains a balance of warmth and breathability, standing as a shield without the weighty feel.

      Protective Elements: Padding and Plating

      Key to an armored hoodie's design are the protective components—pads and plates—inserted into the lining at vulnerable areas like the back, shoulders, and elbows. While padding provides a cushion against falls, plating can disperse the force of an impact, minimizing the risk of injury. The placement of these elements is meticulously calculated so that protection is maximized without restricting movement or adding uncomfortable bulk.  They are also perfectly sewn as to remain stationary while in place but also be removable if you wish to take them out.  

      Design and Aesthetics

      While the focus is on protection, style isn't neglected. Our armored hoodies come in a range of colors to suit various tastes while maintaining their protective function. The aesthetics are tailored to blend safety features seamlessly into the overall look of the hoodie, ensuring that function and form go hand-in-hand while still maintaining that stealth protection.

      Is it just for riding?

      Practicality in Various Settings

      Casual Wear Considerations

      Armored hoodies are not just limited to action-packed environments; they also offer practical benefits for everyday casual wear. They bring peace of mind to those who want extra protection in their daily routines without standing out. The design of our hoodies includes ample pocket space, ergonomic fits, and adjustable features for added convenience and comfort.

      Use in Sports or Active Lifestyles

      For sports enthusiasts and people with active lifestyles, armored hoodies provide an added layer of safety in activities that involve the risk of falls or impacts. Skaters, bikers, and extreme sports aficionados find these hoodies ideal for their combination of mobility and defense against injury, enabling them to push the limits while staying protected.

      Protective Gear for Motorcycle Riders

      It’s no surprise that our hoodies are designed from the road up with the everyday motorcycle rider in mind. The road can be unforgiving, and wearing an armored hoodie offers a blend of protection against road rash and impact that traditional motorcycle jackets offer, while maintaining the comfort and ease of a sweatshirt. Our specialized hoodies serve as an alternative to bulky and restrictive riding gear, delivering on protection while catering to a rider's desire for a more casual appearance.

      Is it Comfortable?

      Breathability and Flexibility

      Our armored hoodies are designed with a wearer's comfort in mind, incorporating breathable materials that allow for air circulation to prevent overheating. The flexibility of the fabric also plays a significant role in comfort, ensuring that the additional safety features do not impede natural movement. Wearers can expect a balance between a true to size fit that provides protection and a full range of motion.

      Ease of Maintenance and Care

      Understanding that an armored hoodie might be subjected to rugged use, the design facilitates easy maintenance. The Bodyguard Armored Hoodie is machine washable, simplifying the cleaning process. Practical details like removable padding make it possible to keep both the protective elements and the fabric shell in top condition.

      Weight and Range of Movement

      Despite their additional padding and protective layers, our armored hoodies are crafted to remain as lightweight as possible. They are less cumbersome than traditional protective gear, enabling wearers to retain a full range of movement. This consideration is vital for ensuring that the hoodie can be worn comfortably for extended periods, no matter the activity.

      Technology in Fabrics and Armor

      Innovations in Material Technology

      The advancements in material science have been pivotal in the development of armored hoodies, especially with our aramid lining. With a focus on blending protection with comfort, manufacturers are constantly exploring new ways to improve the fibers and fabrics used. These innovations result in materials that offer unprecedented durability, abrasion resistance, and tear strength without adding significant weight.

      Evolution of Protective Wear

      Here at NBT, we embrace the evolution of protection with open arms, as our armored hoodies stand at the forefront of modern safety apparel. We harness the power of smart textiles, marrying them with the latest design innovations to elevate the standards of protective wear. Our armored hoodies are a product of this progress, enhancing not just the security they provide but also their overall comfort and style. The advanced technology woven into every hoodie ensures that they fit seamlessly into your lifestyle, offering diverse functionality. 

      From the daily commute to a weekend adventure, NBT armored hoodies are tailored for a broad spectrum of users who no longer have to choose between safety and style. They’re designed to be your trusty companion, ready for whatever life throws your way.

      Choosing the Right Armored Hoodie

      Fit and Sizing

      The effectiveness of an armored hoodie is partly determined by its fit. A proper fit ensures that the protective elements are situated correctly over the body. It should be snug enough to keep armor in place, but not too tight as to limit mobility. Taking accurate measurements and consulting size charts are vital steps in selecting the right armored hoodie. Check out our sizing guide to make sure your hoodie fits perfectly! You can also use our WaiR Sizing app which has thousands of data points across customers of many different sizes to ensure you find just the right fit.  Our Bodyguard Armored Hoodie fits true to size. 

      Care and Maintenance

      Cleaning Guidelines

      To ensure the longevity and effectiveness of armored hoodies, it's crucial to adhere to the cleaning guidelines we provide. This involves removing any armor inserts before washing, using a gentle cycle, and avoiding harsh chemicals that can degrade the protective fibers. Proper drying techniques are also important, as high heat can damage both the fabric and the armor.

      Handling Wear and Tear

      Timely repairs to minor damages can extend an armored hoodie's lifecycle. Simple maintenance like patching small tears or reattaching loose fittings can prevent further deterioration. However, significant damage, particularly to the protective elements, may require more substantial repairs or altogether replacing the piece to ensure optimal safety.
