K9 Storm Inc. is a Canadian manufacturer and distributor of custom-fitted canine tactical body armor.
Veteran Police K9 Handler, Jim Slater, originally designed the vest to enable his police service dog, Olaf, to meet the demands of progressive tactical emergency response team operations and be protected. The patented design was the result of extensive research and field testing.
The idea of police K9 body armor that can be worn on all calls for service has been patented (Canada Patent # 2249186, US Patent # 6,123,049) and marketed worldwide as K9 Storm Tactical Body Armor. What began as a need for one bulletproof vest has developed into an incorporated business in 1998 whose innovation is now protecting dogs in agencies at home and abroad including the RCMP, the Canadian Coast Guard, The Rotterdam Hodenbrigade, and the Swiss Army.
