Quick Overview

NEW PRODUCT now in stock!
OPTIM3 for unrivalled protection, comfort and price!!!

ELMON OPTIM3 is a new kind of NIJ IIIA Dyneema vest giving you certified protection, comfort and best possible mobility. Actually, it is a modular ballistic protection device rather than a vest. It can be used as covert (under clothes) or overt (visible). After trying this vest most users tell us they will never use anything else again, unless higher protection level or larger protection area is required.


The shape of OPTIM3 is special as the protection area is designed to cover human body front and back critical areas. OPTIM3 is very different in comfort and shape. Compared to a typical NIJ IIIA vest OPTIM3 is about 0.5...1.0 kg lighter (depending on the size). OPTIM3 does not capture body heat inside the ballistic panels, but provides better ventilation and user mobility. In addition to this the inside is lined with 3D Spacetec ventilation material which keeps the ballistic panel 1-3 mm away from the body allowing air to move between user body and the vest creating a remarkable cooling effect.


Since this vest does not provide 360° side protection, we urge our customers to evaluate the risks they may confront and select the correct vest according to their individual needs and threat level. If 360º protection is a must, we recommend our R2R IIIA or Hybrid IIIA vest instead.

All materials used in this vest are the best you can get: the protection panels in NIJ IIIA have 39 layers of Dyneema SB 21 manufactured by the leading ballistic material developer and producer Royal DSM in Netherlands. These layers are covered with a high strength ballistic cover material and stiched with a special thread.


The carrier has a very special design and is made from ventilated 3D Spacetec, Rip-Stop and military specification compliant high resistance Velcro. Also Coolmax Fresh treatment, which is a silver ion -treatment for fabrics has been used for preventing of bacteria growth and odor. This treatment is Ökotex -certified to be totally non-toxic. The carrier has also Drycomfort XT -treatment for water-resistance. Warranty of the carrier is 3 years from purchase in normal use.


Optional suspenders (3 pcs) are available (not included in the delivery). These are sometimes preferred by users having to move/sit down and stand up a lot during the work. These suspenders help to keep the vest in correct position when user moves a lot. OPTIM3 can also be ordered with a special strap set enabling use of a single panel only; either in front or back.


OPTIM3 complies with ballistic protection standards NIJ-STD-0101.04 standard and Interim 2005. It protects the user from handgun bullets according to NIJ specifications up to .44 mag.  OPTIM3 is suitable for conditions where the ballistic threat do not exceed .44 mag handgun calibers.


OPTIM3 is manufactured in two sizes: S-M and L-XXL. Because of the special design these two sizes cover the needs of more than 90% of ballistic body protection users. Size S-M is designed for users being 150...180 tall. Size L-XXL is designed for users being 181...200 cm tall. Because of the design, selecting the correct size is as simple as this. OPTIM3 adapts to the body regardless the body shape. Both sizes have the same price.


If you still are unsure when selecting between these two sizes, please add the following measures as a comment to your order:



  • your height

  • weight

  • measure from front neck pit to navel when measured over your body surface (1)

  • chest circumference (2)

  • waist circumference (3).


For orders having this information included, we re-check the correct sizing prior to shipping.
With our advice the size selecting will succeed every time.
