    There is no such thing as 'bulletproof' body armor, only 'bullet-resistant'. The field vest looks nice, thanks for the link.

    A bullet proof shirt?

    You can't get any performance data until you "pre order". To slick for my liking.

    How does it protect against blunt force trauma and energy dissipation as from a handgun projectile?

    Okay so the projectile is retarded but it still has hit the target and has compressed flesh, bone, and/or organs in the process.
    Does this clothing have any sort of padding on the backside to reduce impact forces against the wearers frame?

    It looks like you might wind up with a bullet wrapped in cloth buried about 5 inches deep in you chest..??? At least the hole will be well plugged up.

    I know this stuff has been in development for several years with the Army, and other agencies. In fact, according to the media our new leader is wearing some variation of it.

    Looks like just the thing for a night out in Chicago or DC.

    I have never lived where I thought I would need such. If I did I would move. I realize some would carry at least two guns, a good fighting knife, and body armor, but with my own lifestyle that would be ridiculous.

    After reading closely they mention "inner panels" and the propper fitting of them. Unfortunately they don't sell anything meeting Geco45's concerns, .338 Lapua!

    If you need protection from anything up to .44 magnum they might be what you are looking for.

    The "legal" section of that site says they are "bullet resistant" up to "NIJ standard".....

    Some demonstrational videos and benchmarks would be cool.
