Safeguard Armour is committed to keeping all of our armour in line with the highest standards of testing and grading, and as part of this goal, we keep all of our stab and spikeproof vests compliant with the latest HOSDB standards.

The UK Home Office Scientific Development Branch (HOSDB), now known as the Centre for Applied Science and Technology (CAST), is widely regarded as the world leader in the testing and standardization of edged blade and spiked weapon testing for body armor.
