What Protection Levels Do Your Vests Have?
There are handgun threats and rifle threats. Soft bullet resistant material stop handgun rounds and fragmentation but only a rigid rifle plate stops a rifle round. Level IIA, Level II and Level IIIA will stop the majority of pistol round plus 12 gauge and OO buckshot but no material is ever 100% ‘bulletproof’. We only sell the current NIJ Level IIIA 0101.06 standard, which also protects against Level IIA & Level II. We recommend staying away from the old 0101.04 standard as testing protocols have moved on since the old standard was in force!
Rifle rounds require Level III or Level IV ballistic plates made from either steel, ceramic or polyethylene – usually 10″ x 12″ weighs from 4 to 9 lbs per plate to cover the Chest and/or Back. Doubling up two Level IIIA WILL NOT stop a rifle projectile! We only sell Level III plates.
