Warrior West – Introduces FLEX9 Armor with Soteria Armor Technology from Protect The Force

Warrior West FLEX9 Protect The Force

 Law Enforcement Technology Magazine’s Editorial Director; Frank Borelli, & Managing Editor; Jonathan Kozlowski review the Safariland/Soteria Armor gloves premiered at ShotShow 2017.

“Safariland’s Soteria Armor SoterX glove line uses a patented material – no Kevlar, no Dyneema, no glass. The demo had you do the highest level glove. The material was thicker than typical, my dexterity was slightly limited (emphasis on slightly). Once my hand was out flat, the then lit the torch up to temperature. The best way I can describe it is that the glove turned what should be a third degree burn to feeling like holding your hand over a birthday cake. Now think of using your hand to clear a window of broken glass, gripping the hot rifle barrel, or avoiding rope burn. Safariland has this scheduled to launch Summer 2017.”

SOTERIA ARMOR develops light weight, comfortable, anti-microbial, and breathable apparel, that provides the wearer with un-paralleled protection from fire, cut, slash, stab, puncture, abrasion and low velocity frag.  Our products are designed to meet the specific needs of those who put their lives on the line, and ONLY contain natural and synthetic fibers, avoiding the use of metals, glass, Kevlar, and Nomex.

Built with our proprietary SoterX™ multifunctional materials and light weight exoskeleton composites, SOTERIA ARMOR apparel enhances the survivability of the individual, improving protection and survivability, while reducing injury and fatigue.

Watch for the SOTERIA ARMOR product launch, 1st quarter, 2017.


SOTERIA ARMOR products are built with our patented, and proprietary SoterX™ multifunction textiles.  What makes SoterX™ textiles unique, is our approach to using commercially known fibers and materials commonly found in other applications, but using them in unconventional combinations, constructions, and composites.  In some cases, it is necessary to modify fabrication equipment and techniques to withstand the higher mechanical thresholds required for working with engineered yarns which are unique to SoterX™ materials.  Yarn engineering and textile fabrication is an ancient art form and at this stage there are probably few undiscovered ways to blend, wrap, plaite, twist etc. fibers; however, this is precisely our approach.

Additionally, SOTERIA ARMOR has invented unique surface bonding and coating techniques that unlike traditional coating methods, do not diminish critical and functional qualities of fibers integrated in our textiles.




Working with industry leaders, our SOTERIA ARMOR Technical Design Team solves the toughest of protection problems, while creating new products and market opportunities for our strategic partners.  SoterX™ textiles are specifically designed and performance based, meeting the needs of the end-user, while optimizing costs for our strategic partners.  SoterX™ is product agnostic, and can be used and embedded in products including: uniforms, boots, gloves, riot suites, scarfs, balaclava, and other apparel.

The revolutionary new Safariland/SOTERIA ARMOR Urban Assault™, Land Warfare™, and
Heavy Weapons™ gloves will be available for purchase in May. Stop back for updates and details.


The SOTERIA ARMOR team is comprised of technology, aerospace, defense industry, law enforcement, and first responder subject matter experts with more than 100 years of combined operational experience working with US Special Operations Command (SOCOM), the US Department of Defense, Department of State, Department of Justice, Alcohol, Tobacco, & Firearms (ATF), Department of Homeland Security, Aerospace Industry, and British Military.
