Black Weatherproof disguised Bullet/Stab-proof jacket
“This is, without doubt, the best disguised bullet/stab-proof jacket
we have ever come across. You won’t find it anywhere else and you
will never find a protective jacket as smart as this one. The
protection levels it offers are quite unheard of in such a light,3
kilo, and discreet jacket.
This jacket offers a protection level to NIJ STD 0101.04 level 11A and
European Police Standard for tactical vests RPS B (1999).
The armour protects against 9mm Full Metal Jacket Round Nose (FMJRN)
projectiles, with a weight of 8gm (124gr) at 430 m/s. Full Metal
Jacket Round Nose (FMJRN) type DM11A1B2 (DN or MEN) projectiles with a
weight of 8gm (124gr) at 415m/s. 44 Magnum jacketed Soft Point (JSP)
type Norma 11103/61103 projectiles with a weight of 15.6gm (158gr) at
390 m/s. 44 Magnum Jacketed Hollow Point (JHP) projectiles with a
weight of 15.6gm (240gr) at 430 m/s. Eastern European Tokarev LC 7.62
x 25mm steel core projectile with a weight of 5.5gm at 455 m/s.
This jacket also protects against stabs, cuts, slashes with sharp and
blunt edged weapons like hypodermic needles, ice picks, knives and
broken bottles up to 25 Joules according PSDB (2003).
