The team at WarBird has combined decades of upper-echelon experience in law enforcement, military service, individual tactics instruction, and personal protection product development to create a brand you can trust for your vital needs.

Our goal at WarBird is to provide you with excellent personal protection, and make it available at a reasonable price. Your health and level of survivability should not depend on your income.

MATT DAVIS

CEO

With decades of experience in helping develop and grow the body armor industry, Matt Davis was also the founder of the Great Lakes Law Enforcement Challenge (GLLEC): an annual training conference with classroom style debriefs and training, as well as team-based live fire training and competition. The event was a collaboration with Armor Express, the Michigan Tactical Officers Association, Illinois Tactical Officers Association, Indiana SWAT Officers Association, Ohio Tactical Officers Association and the Association of SWAT Personnel Wisconsin. Combined, this gives Matt experience and perspective of both manufacturer and end-user considerations for body armor design. Matt’s mission is to continue the legacy of his family, not only in the body armor industry, but to also save lives by protecting the cop on the street, the soldier in the field and the many responsible citizens pursuing their right to protect what matters most.
