We have placed our version 4.4.1 Spall Guard orders on hold due to material shortages. The mill that custom produces the material is backed up about 90-120 days.

Please email us to get on the notification list, and we will keep you apprised of the status.

Thanks for your patience, and patronage.

In the past few months, we here at D-Rmor Gear have been burning the candle at both ends to bring our patrons and loyal end users several new and innovative products.

Just to let you know, it’s going to get even better.

We are preparing to release several more new products, some that have been in development since 2014.

These will include enhancements and improvements for those of you running plate carriers, as well as performance and safety upgrades for existing concealable soft armor.

Finally, for those that have been loyal followers of D-Rmor Gear from the beginning, an exciting upgrade to two of our flagship products.

Stay tuned, and follow us to keep up with the latest!

After a rather long hiatus, we have updated the ever-popular Recommended Armor/Gear Database. There have been some interesting (and surprising) additions, and sadly some items became unobtainable for various reasons.

But time and gear marches forward! Thanks for your patience. Check out the updated page here:

Over the past 15 years, we have been designing, building, innovating, and improving armor, tactical gear, and related equipment. Our philosophy has ever been, “there’s no such thing as over-engineering, merely proper engineering.” After wearing out, destroying, and dissecting more pieces of personal gear than we can recount, there were some themes that kept repeating: stitching geometry, materials, and design are all critical. It sounds like common sense, but after witnessing many gear failures, and tracing them to their causes, we saw that common sense is not so common.

We began to design gear that incorporated advanced materials. Materials normally only found in ballistic armor, such as Kevlar and Twaron. We sought out the best materials, and when they couldn’t be found, we had them custom milled to our specifications. And we realized that using ballistic-rated materials could enhance the overall protective capabilities of the entire system, meaning that pouches and load-bearing gear was no longer pure parasitic weight.

The results of that decade of design, planning, innovation and re-design are now available to you, a dividend that you can benefit from when you purchase any of our FragTuf(TM) gear.

When you see the FragTuf(TM) name, it means that the item is stronger, lighter, better. There are three levels of FragTuf(TM) construction:

FragTuf-A: Utilizes our signature dual-stitching, combining mil-spec Kevlar and Nylon. Can also include advanced HANK (High Abrasion Neoprene Kevlar) laminate.

FragTuf-B: Includes everything found in FragTuf-A, but goes a step further, and contains between one and three layers of fifth-generation woven ballistic aramid.

FragTuf-C The most rugged FragTuf gear includes everything A and B has, with the addition of our custom-milled SpallGuard aramid material, usually in places other makers would use mundane padding.

Our goal is to create a comprehensive line of gear, that is both universally compatible with everything we make, as well as interchangeable and compatible with as much extant gear (current, future, and legacy) as possible. To give you the absolute maximum number of possibilities in setting up your kit, with the absolute best quality and durability.

Here at D-Rmor Gear, we are always striving to give the end-user more options, and more ways to solve gear problems. We believe that the best way to do that is provide as close to limitless versatility, modularity, and compatibility as we can.

Enter the D-Rmor Gear FragTuf 360 panel! As the name suggests this panel provides you with 360 degree load-carriage options. With three rows of four-column MOLLE, and nine integral 1″ loops on the front, and both 2″ webbing slots AND belt-loop attachment points on the rear, it is up to you how to use it. Just a few of the possibilities include:

Low-Profile/Minimalist Chest Rig (When combined with our forthcoming Universal Suspension Rig)
Drop-Leg Panel (When combined with our forthcoming Drop-Leg Suspension Kit)
Shoulder-Rig Panel (When combined with our forthcoming Shoulder Rig Kit)
Minimalist Rear-Panel Add-On for Chest Rigs
Belt-Panel
Micro-Cummerbund Panel
Daisy-Chained Bandoleer (Connect multiple 360 panels together with split-bar SR buckles)
Ruck Panel (Interior or Exterior)

Compatible with 1″ split-bar side release buckles, ITW Nexus G-Hooks, and 1″ up to 2″ webbing, we give you the option to use it as you see best.

And, because it is constructed of D-Rmor Gear’s Innovative and Industry-Leading FragTuf technology, this panel outshines everything else out there: it contains two layers of woven fifth-generation ballistic Aramid, and is sewn at critical points with our dual Nylon/Kevlar stitching method. FragTuf technology both ensures your gear holds together through the most challenging situations, as well as enhancing the overall protective value of your entire kit.

The 360 Panel boasts a FragTuf-B rating.

And because we are looking forward, all of our gear is designed with an eye toward seamless integration with our forthcoming Load Bearing Vests, Plate Carriers, and Chest Rigs.

Finally, what would D-Rmor Gear be without our guarantee? The 360 panel comes with our no-BS, fully transferable lifetime guarantee. If you break it, get it back to us and we will repair or replace at our discretion. Just tell us how you managed to break it!

Everyone loves Kydex. It makes for durable, lightweight, rigid holsters, mag pouches, and knife sheaths.

However if you want to attach a Kydex sheath to a MOLLE panel, or have a blade you want to run on a dundee rig, a drop-leg setup, or attach to a pack…the Kydex leaves much to be desired. Zip-ties or paracord lashing keep the low-profile of the original sheath, but are somewhat…low-speed. Other methods using screws and polymer hardware work, but add significant weight and bulk.

Enter the D-Rmor Gear KTM (Kydex-To-Molle) sheath adapter. Constructed of 1″ Mil-spec nylon webbing and rugged 500 denier solution-dyed Cordura, the KTM adapter gives you an abundance of mounting options. With the use of ITW G-Hooks, Tactical Tailor MALICE Clips, or split-bar side release buckles, you can mount your knife tip-up, tip-down, or horizontally. Set it up as a Dundee shoulder rig, a drop-leg rig, or mount it to your ruck or plate carrier. The KTM boasts four mounting loops and double-sided MOLLE compatible mounting webbing, in addition to a paracord tie-down integral to the design.

The KTM offers positive integration and retention of the Kydex and KTM, resulting in a secure, comfortable, versatile, and low-profile upgrade to your favorite sheath and blade combo.

Intended to work with quality Kydex sheaths (such as those offered by Al Welke of AZWelke Sheaths), the KTM can be crafted for both pancake and taco style kydex sheaths.

Pricing will vary by size, knife shown is a Busse SWatmandu Taco sheath by AZWelke, and would run $49 as-equipped (sheath and blade NOT included). Each KTM is customized to your sheath, and requires end-user to mail sheath with payment.

Color options are Coyote, Black, Multicam.
