Bulletproof Jackets / Bullet Proof Jackets

Our bulletproof jackets available greatly improve your chances of surviving the next critical mission. We offer bullet proof jackets in many colors, sizes, and levels of protection. Concealable bullet proof jackets are the most widely used kind of body armor worn under the normal uniform shirt. Our concealable body armor feels safe, lightweight, not overly restrictive to movement, and available in a number of designs.

Strangely enough the only real bullet proof jackets armor that's absolutely certain to fail to protect the wearer may be the armor that isn't worn. When a handgun bullet strikes body armor, it is caught inside a “web” of fibers. These fibers absorb and disperse the impact souped up that is transmitted towards the vest from the bullet, resulting in the bullet to deform, or “mushroom”. Our bulletproof jackets are constructed with several layers of material that work to soak up the additional energy from the bullet. Varying levels of protection are offered to defeat most typical low- and medium- energy handgun rounds. Body armor designed to defeat rifle fire is of either semirigid or rigid construction, typically incorporating hard materials such as ceramics and metals. Due to the weight and bulkiness, semigrid bulletproof jackets (bullet proof jackets) are impractical for routine use by uniformed patrol officers and are restricted to use in tactical situations, where it's worn externally for short periods of time when confronted with higher level threats.

Stab-resistant bulletproof jackets (bullet proof jackets) works by many of the same principles as ballistic-resistant body armor. Stab- and puncture-resistant armors are made from a number of materials. The most common designs use multiple layers of materials. These layers are manufactured from extremely strong fibers that may be either woven or laminated together. Many other materials used are metals and composites. Since the threat impacts the bulletproof jackets armor, the types of materials either deflect the threat, or because of their high levels of tensile strength and cut and/or tear resistance, they slightly “stretch” before breaking or being cut. This “stretching” spreads the impact forces on the larger part of the armor and dissipates the strike energy in the threat, eventually stopping the threat. Most often, multiple layers of materials are essential in bullet proof jackets to successfully stop typical threats. A few of the top layers of material may be defeated, but if properly designed, the armor will stop the threat with virtually no penetration. The backing layers provide additional strength towards the armor, and each layer assists in dissipating the strike energy.

Typically, concealable bulletproof jackets (bullet proof jackets) are made of multiple layers of ballistic- or stab-resistant materials, assembled into the “protective panel.” The protective panel is then inserted to the “carrier,” which is made of conventional garment fabrics for example nylon or cotton. The protective panel might be permanently sewn into the carrier or might be removable. Although the overall finished product looks relatively simple in construction, the protective panel is very complex.

When caring for hard armor inside your bulletproof jackets (bullet proof jackets), you should keep in mind that hard body armor, particularly ceramic material, should be handled carefully since it is fragile. Ceramic materials-such as boron carbide, aluminum oxide, or silicon carbide-are extremely brittle. Such armor shouldn't be dropped on hard surfaces so when used, the ceramic must function as the striking (exterior) surface. It should also be inspected before each use to ensure that no surface cracks are present that would degrade ballistic performance.
