ORIGIN

Ares Defender™ was created to provide cutting edge wearable armor to law enforcement, military, and first responders.

 

Aptly named after the Greek god of war, the Ares Defender™ is military grade technology inspired by NASA's Mars Rover Mission.

 

Between our passion for high tech gear and that Mars is the Roman name for Ares, our tactical shirt couldn't have a more fitting moniker.

The Ares Defender Tactical Shirt was originally created to provide cutting-edge wearable apparel to law enforcement, military, and first responders. Aptly named after the Greek god of war, the Ares Defender™ is military-grade technology inspired by NASA's Mars Rover Mission.

The shirt's core is our patented SWX™ textile. Not only is it cut, tear, abrasion, puncture, flame resistant, and thermally rated, it is USA-made and Berry Amendment Compliant.

The Ares Defender was designed by the operators at Shadow Works, a service-disabled veteran-owned small business.  All of our apparel is designed with inspiration and input from our diverse team; 2 Navy SEALs, a former ATF Chief, a US Army Officer, and a British Military Veteran.

CONSTRUCTION

Our goal was to create a tactical shirt that brought mil-spec gear to your daily life. In order to do that, we started the only way we know; with our dynamic SWX™ protective textile.  

Our patented SWX™ textile combines military-level protection with everyday comfort and style. Not only is SWX™ cut, puncture, tear, and flame resistant, but it is also durable, breathable, and machine washable.

 

Designed by our ATF Chief and Navy SEALs, the Ares Defender was created to exceed the standards of current military-spec gear. By combining the unparalleled protective qualities of SWX™ with moisture-wicking, fire-resistant DriFire™ panels, and Kevlar® thread, the Ares Defender delivers the most comprehensive levels of everyday protection.
