First Look: BulletSafe Vital Protection 3 Vest
The BulletSafe Vital Protection 3 (VP3) Vest is a new and significant addition to BulletSafe’s impressive collection of life-saving products. The vest is easily concealed beneath a working uniform, making it well-suited for law enforcement, security personnel and anyone working in a dangerous profession. Priced to be affordable, the vest is also a good choice for working-class citizens who want extra peace of mind as they go about their daily routine.
This American-made vest is lightweight and able to protect against most calibers up to .44 Magnum. The vest fits snugly to its wearer thanks to the quality and consistency of the manufacturing and the provided height-and-weight chart. The XS vest weighs 3.9 pounds, while the largest size, 4XL, weighs 6.9 pounds. The vest is also modular and can be upgraded to provide even more protection. It has wrap-around, front & rear ballistic panels to maximize protection over the heart, lungs and other vital organs, and can carry larger plates to provide Level IV protection against rifle calibers.
As part of the process of perfecting this new product, dozens of BulletSafe vests were subjected to sustained, harsh treatment to simulate years of hard use. The BulletSafe vests passed these tests with flying colors, with an NIJ Standard of 0101.06.
