NIJ Safety Notice #01-2018: Pacific Safety Products Ballistic Body Armor Model GPAII-2-F4

Published November 29, 2018

The National Institute of Justice (NIJ) hereby advises that Pacific Safety Products ballistic body armor Model GPAII-2-F4 has been permanently removed from the NIJ Compliant Products List due to unresolved safety concerns. Any armors of this model should be replaced as soon as possible.

NIJ encourages law enforcement and corrections officers to continue to wear their body armor until it is replaced. Wearing armor that may have reduced effectiveness is better than not wearing any armor.
