While vests and plate carriers are well-known, bullet-resistant backpacks and even bulletproof clothing are now on the market. They all follow the same principle: by putting a layer of ultra-strong material between your vitals and a bullet, projectile, or blade.
At Bulletproof Zone, we know it's important to understand such a potentially life-saving piece of equipment before you decide which one to purchase. That's the goal of this guide: we'll help you understand body armor and when to use it for your tactical loadout.
People have been using body armor in one form or another since we first realized sticks and stones can break our bones. As weaponry grows more sophisticated, so does the gear we use to protect ourselves. This brings us to one of the most common types of body armor used today - the bulletproof vest.
If you're wondering who wears them and why, you're in the right place! We'll explain who needs a bulletproof vest and how they can help you.
The threat levels for ballistic vests are set by the NIJ (National Institute of Justice). There are currently five levels in use - Level IIA, II, IIIA, III, and IV - and each covers a different caliber of bullet. We'll help you understand all the NIJ levels so you can assess which level defeats the range of threats most likely to come your way.
Plate carriers have become more and more popular, and now are a great safeguard not only for military personnel but also for civilians. If you're looking for the best ballistic vest to add to your tactical gear, you've come to the right place!
We'll take you through our picks for some of the best plate carriers you can buy plus teach you the basics of plate carriers, and how to choose the best one. Let's go!
