What level of protection does the Bulletproof Vest provide?
We choose a NIJ Level IIIA (3A) vest. This is the highest level you will find in soft armor. We did not want to sell a bulletproof vest with any compromises. Our vest is more protective than a level I (1), level IIA (2A) or II (2) vests. Our level IIIA (3A) vest will protect you from almost all handgun rounds. It is tested for rounds up to a .44 Magnum.
If you are looking for protection against rifle caliber rounds, you will need to also look at adding ballistic plates to your vest. These plates will upgrade your BulletSafe vest from level IIIA (3A) to level IV (4). A level IV plate will protect you from rifle rounds up to a 30-06 if used in conjunction with our soft armor. Rifle plates come as individual units, not as a set. If you are looking to have rifle protection in the front and the back, you will need to order 2 ballistic plates.
