Our Story

Owner and CEO, Chad Cooper

Chad is a former civilian Law Enforcement Officer and served six years in the US Air Force as an Intelligence Specialist, finishing as a Staff Sergeant (NCO). He then worked as a military contractor for four years providing support to the USAF and Navy.

During that time he realized that armor was an essential part of gear for those in dangerous areas, but that the cost and weight of the armor often made it so that people didn't want to purchase and wear it. That spawned the idea of making armor lighter and more affordable, not only for those serving overseas, but for patriots serving in their homes and communities.

From its humble beginnings, Infidel Body Armor has provided equipment to 13K+ individuals and organizations and continues to grow. Chad now runs Infidel, flys, boats, motorcycles, and enjoys spending time with his wife and four children.
