BlueStone Safety Reviews

Jamaal Joseph - Gary Indiana Police Department

"I have been a police officer in Gary, Indiana for 12 years. Bluestone Safety formally know as Nate's, has supplied me with highest quality outer vest carries for my career. The first outer vest carrier lasted in the outdoor work environment for 5 years before it needed to be replaced.  They promised me that the vest would be completed in a few days. I received a call the next day advising me that they were finished with my order. That was one day faster than they predicted. The vest fits great along with all of my equipment inside. Overall, I am very satisfied with Bluestone Safety. I recommend Bluestone Safety to all Law Enforcement Agencies."
