ArmorFit securely attaches to armor plates, adapting them to the body contours of female soldiers and police officers for a secure, individualized fit—addressing issues women have faced for decades with ill-fitting armor that was designed and built for the male physique.
“I can confidently say that wearing other armor fitment systems feels like torture. ArmorFit is a game changer—providing individualized fit and comfort so women can wear armor with confidence and ease.”
Suzanne Van Wagner – Business Operations Manager, Rival Technologies
By bringing together next-generation DARKMATTER technology and Rival’s manufacturing expertise, ArmorFit delivers:
- Optimized Performance: Secure, individualized fitment increases load-carriage support and removes restrictions on mobility, agility, and endurance.
- Enhanced Protection: Cutting-edge DARKMATTER technology disperses impact force, providing superior protection to standalone armor plates.
- Unparalleled Comfort: Soft, breathable padding eliminates pressure points, hotspots, and discomfort, even during extended wear.
Gerry Van Wagner, CEO & Managing Director of Rival Technologies, expressed his enthusiasm about the collaboration, “Our partnership with DARKMATTER marks a significant milestone in advancing new protective solutions for women. By introducing ArmorFit, we are addressing a critical need in the market and ensuring that female soldiers and police officers have access to the best possible fit, performance and protection.”
Joe Cufari, CEO of Monarc and DARKMATTER agreed, stating, “We are very excited to be addressing this critical issue together with Rival Technologies. Rival has a phenomenal track record of delivering innovative solutions that meet the highest quality standards.”
ArmorFit is showcased this week at SHOT Show 2024 at the Rival Technologies Booth (#51626).
