Does bulletproof mean it will stop all bullets?
Ballistic protection is rated to stop various calibers of ammunition from specific firearms. For example, most body armor on the market is rated 3A. This is the highest rating for soft armor you can get and it will only stop handgun fire. So if you’re concerned about a specific threat like a 5.56 round fired from an AR-15 then you need level 3 and above rated armor.
What do the NIJ Levels mean?
You can download the National Institute of Justice (NIJ) Ballistic Rating Guide HERE
The NIJ ratings in order of levels of protection 2A, 2, 3A, 3, 4
Soft Armor Ratings

Level 3 will stop Rifle rounds 5.56 and 7.62 FMJ rounds

How long does body armor last?
The industry maximum is 5 years – and Bodyguard Personal Armor gives you the industry maximum. After that time it will start to degrade.
Over time moisture and normal wear and tear will break the fibers down decreasing its ability to stop bullets.
Can ballistic armor stop edged weapons?
Ballistic protection and protection against spike and edged weapons use different technology. Ballistic protection is designed to absorb energy and displace it, while technology used to stop edged weapons (spike, stab and slash ratings) are designed to “catch” or snag the blade or spike – this is in direct contrast to what it takes to stop a bullet.
However ballistic plates can stop edged weapons and in the case of soft armor (Level 2A, 2 and 3A) it takes a fair amount of force to penetrate the armor - so even though you see guys stabbing their bulletproof jackets…they don’t have the rating and you still need a separate certification.
What is the ballistic material made of?
Twaron, an aramid fiber similar to kevlar.
