Safariland Armor

Body armor is not actually bulletproof, it really is bullet resistant. No body armor will shield you from every thing.

This can be a very good rule of thumb that if an individual carries a firearm then you ought to be wearing a vest that has the potential of stopping a bullet coming from your own personal firearm. For instance, should you carry a 9mm hand gun, then you ought to be wearing no less than a level IIA if not a level II vest.

The life span of soft body armor has various opinions. Law enforcement agencies commonly use and rate soft body armor as having a life span of five years. Although, it really depends upon simply how much it's been worn. in the event body armor is worn every day then in all probability it will lose much of its protective capabilities in five years, but again it depends on how it has been treated or mistreated. Are there creases or holes or any visible damage?

Kevlar is not the only bullet resistant fiber now available. There are right now several dozen different ballistic fibers being utilized. The two most widely used woven fibers being used for body armor are Kevlar and Twaron.

The majority of body armor vests consist of 2 basic elements, an outershell which usually has an integrated carrier built into it along with detachable ballistic panels and also trauma insert plates. It needs to be mentioned that almost all ballistic panels must be inserted one particular way and one way only.

Unless a vest is made of a unique fiber and weave intended for knife attacks it won't be stab resistant.
