Bladerunner T-Shirt - Slash Resistant - White
The Bladerunner slash resistant T-Shirt is lined with woven kevlar aramid fibre. It will provide protection against slashes and cuts yet gives no indication that it is a protective garment. It can be worn as a stand-alone garment or as a protective under layer. This makes it perfect for use by under cover (UC) police officers, door supervisors and security operatives. Although this T-shirt is not HOSDB KR rated, the benefits of having a low profile slash resistant layer cannot be overstated. This T shirt will give you greater safety and confidence when working in dangerous situations. Dry Clean Only. Unisex.

Without a Doubt Great Buy
Reece Mann, Security Dog Handler
I took on this slash proof t-shirt from the Patrol Store not really knowing what to expect, although I have heard of security colleagues purchasing them for added protection in many different sectors of the industry. I almost expected a mini version of the classic stab vest but with added sleeves, so when it arrived I was shocked. It appeared to be a T-Shirt, no bigger, no smaller. Compare it to another white t-shirt and you wouldn’t be able to tell the difference just from appearance. Looking inside the t-shirt you can see there is the protective yellow layer but this is not visible at all when the T-Shirt is being worn. Do check the sizing when purchasing using the Patrol Stores sizing guide. My xxl size T-Shirt was snug and had I have been wearing it overtly I would have opted for a slightly bigger size, but sizing was perfect for covert wear. In fact wearing it under my duty shirt I was asked on more than one occasion if I'd lost weight! (Can't be bad) Looking hench!
I would test this T-Shirt over my 84hour duty week ahead. My first duty wearing this t-shirt was VIP residential security. As a dog handler I am self sufficient, all activities originating from my dog van. For this duty I always wear plenty to help keep the cold out despite the constant activity. On this occasion I decided to wear the slash proof t-shirt under my shirt and tie and a standard lightweight coat. With temperatures hovering around 5 degrees I thought I would regret this decision, however the t-shirt came into its own in this climate. The materials used in the slash proof t-shirt seemingly provided a layer of thermal protection that may be overwhelming in hot weather. Throughout the shift I bonded with the T-shirt, and at no point during the numerous patrols, getting in and out of the vehicle or falling forward, my head bouncing off the steering wheel as I make a momentary visit to the land of nod did the t-Shirt impede my performance. The comfort you just don't get with higher level stab vests that on lower threat level assignments are just unnecessary.
The cleaning guidelines for this garment are dry clean only. I tried washing it in a domestic washing machine for the review and the T-Shirt fared well. A standard 'hand' eco wash and it was as bright and wrinkle free as when it went in. Placed on a hanger overnight and it was dry the next morning. Quality materials are clearly used and the construction of the collar is robust and hasn't fatigued during the test.
Blade runner has this short sleeve white T-Shirt up for sale at £53.99, but buying through patrol store you get a nice discounted price of £46.99. Rest assured of the quality of protection as Bladerunner only use Kevlar and test all new products at their UK Test house. For added peace of mind they have made their test results available on request, and in my opinion this shows true confidence in their products.
Without a doubt a great buy. After reviewing the T-Shirt I'm of the firm opinion everyone should have two! In both available colours, black and white in order to match well with ANY uniform worn for ANY occasion. The one thing I didn't review during my test? The slash protection!! I'll happily leave that down to the experts..... In BladeRunner we trust!
