The basic principles of selecting a bulletproof vest

A bulletproof vest can protect you from being hit by cold or firearms and from being injured by shrapnel. Life often depends on this means of personal protection. Read in this review how to choose the right one.

Concealed-type body armor can be disguised under an ordinary jacket. It is invisible to others, it is easy to move, it can be worn without much discomfort for a long time. But it will serve as a barrier only from a knife or small caliber bullet impact – all such models have a low protection class. But if there is no need to protect yourself from a killer’s bullet with a sniper rifle, such protection will be quite sufficient.

Armor vest of the highest, sixth class of protection will cover the body from a bullet 7.62 mm with a heat-treated steel core fired from a rifle. But it will also weigh more than 10 kg – it will require training and endurance to wear it.

Therefore, before you buy a bulletproof vest, you need to clearly determine what type of weapon it must protect against, how often and for how long it will have to be worn, and whether it must be hidden from the eyes of outsiders. After all, the category of body armor includes a variety of personal protective equipment, which differ from each other in a number of characteristics.

Body armor for dogs

Body armor for dogs is not very common. In fact, they are useful in two instances: when a dog is on duty, such as at the border, or when demising areas.

Canine body armor vests have classes of protection: from minimal to special protection class. Such flak jackets can protect the dog from firearms, blows with sticks, etc. Such vests are made to order under the individual characteristics of each animal.

Hunting vests for the dog are necessary for professional hunters who want to have protection for their pet.

It is difficult to buy in the free sale of such body armor. But perhaps you can buy premier body armor.

Models of vests for dogs vary in weight: lightweight and heavy (up to 4 kg). Heavier vests will give good protection, but in them the animal runs slower and feels constrained. Dogs are not allowed to swim in body armor, as they may drown. However, the upper part of the vest has a strong handle that will help quickly pull the pet out of the water.

Sew vests for dogs from durable materials: Kevlar, nylon. Protection depends on the layers, there may be more than seven. The appearance of the vest is usually black, dark blue or orange, but if you sew a vest to order, you can choose any color. The vest is secured with straps or Velcro.
