So far level IV stands for the highest level of personal protection products, and can defend against 30 Armor Piercing (M2 AP). The high-level bulletproof performance is remarkable. But the weight and thickness may influence your flexibility and movement, which should be taken into consideration before use. The following are our level IV ballistic protection products.
What are the materials used in your body armor?
Early body armor was made of metal such as steel. Steel is a widely used hard bulletproof material, which can provide excellent ballistic protection. But it was not suitable for military use once new bulletproof materials were introduced because steel body armor is heavy and can make it difficult to move.
We typically use PE to produce body armor, whose strength is five times as steel, and features lightweight performance. PE body armor is light and will not weigh you down, even during extended missions.
Which level of body armor should I choose?
First of all, you need to assess your potential dangers. Different levels of danger require different levels of body armor. If your bulletproof level is far beyond your danger level, the high-level protection may also influence your flexibility and movement. Among the same-material bulletproof vests, high bulletproof level ones are typically heavier. But if the bulletproof level is lower than your danger level, the body armor cannot ensure your safety. According to your environment of task execution and NIJ ballistic tests, you can determine the suitable NIJ level body armor. The following are different levels of NIJ standards.
