Protective Kevlar Vest
These DuPont Kevlar® ballistic vests have been tested and certified to a specific NIJ Level or HOSDB (UK Ratings). These standards are practically interchangeable and almost identical, the NIJ and HOSDB work together on body armour and their standards. They share their information, and are regarded as the two top standards in the world.
These vests are genuine British Army issue and vastly superior to vests imported from China.
We only deal with Kevlar® protective panels in our stab vests and our bullet proof vests because Kevlar® is the only protective material that has passed the standard of time. Kevlar® only degrades by being subject to extreme temperatures and direct UV sunlight, which none of our ballistic vests have been exposed to (the UK Police and Military tend to treat their equipment better then any other force in the world). Dupont (who own Kevlar®) say “Ballistic decay without use is unlikely assuming it hasn’t been mistreated during storage”. With Kevlar® the shelf life was considered ‘Practically unlimited’.
These vests are NATO size 7080/1020 or size 180/116 this equates to civilian XL.
Although these vests are slightly used they are in mint condition and good as new. The covers are woodland camo but can be easily dyed covert black if required.
