Inspected & Refurbished inside and out, at the factory.
New nylon cover to the ballistic panels and a new outer-shell carrier to look Like-New.
100% Twaron Aramid Vests – VERY flexible, comfortable, and concealable.
Other companies refurbish used vests by mass-producing cloth carrier outer-shells that don’t properly fit the Kevlar vest panels. You will see an extra 2″, or more, of excess cloth material for the Kevlar to slide around in.
Size: Adjustable Large
Ballistic Protection Levels
The National Institute of Justice has a rating system for body armor. As you add layers of a ballistic fiber, such as Aramid fiber, you add protection.
Vests are tested not just for stopping penetration, but also for blunt trauma protection – the blow suffered by the body from the bullet’s impact on the vest. Blunt trauma is measured by the dent suffered by a soft clay backstop to the vest – a maximum of 1.7″ (44 mm) is allowed.
NOTE: The standard NIJ test rounds are listed below – tested vests stop many other comparable rounds, and lesser threats.
NIJ 0101.05 Standard:
9 mm FMJ, at ~1,175 fps
.357 JSP at ~ 1,400 fps
A great balance between blunt trauma protection, versus cost, and thickness / comfort / concealability. Handles the blunt trauma of higher velocity +P rounds better.
What we recommend most often for concealable wear.
It is important to know that Level II-A, II and III-A all stop the overwhelming majority of pistol projectiles you are ever likely to encounter (plus 12 gauge, OO buckshot), and also to know that NO armor is ever 100% ‘bulletproof’ under ALL conceivable circumstances.
