BodyArmorNews.com – For The Latest News About Body Armor

This website is dedicated to providing you with the latest science, news, and updates related to personal ballistic protection and bulletproof vests including the physics of protective armor. Since the launch of this website in 2005 there have been enormous advancements in the industry. Both concealable armor as tactical armor solutions have become lighter, more flexible and more resistant due to the development of new materials and innovative designs.

During this same period, the types of threats faced daily by those whose job it is to protect us have increased. For hundreds of thousands of police officers, soldiers, security guards, journalists, firefighters, EMS personnel and even K-9 dogs, their daily routine now includes putting on a ballistic vest.

As a result, the standards for testing have been updated and improved so that users can be confident that the vest they’re wearing will meet the level of threat they’re likely to face. We now know that vests must be replaced every five to ten years so the wearer can be certain their vest is continuing to provide them with the rated protection level.

Another advancement has been the development of protective vests designed for females, including the integration of breast sizing. Female soldiers and those in law enforcement no longer have to wear ill-fitting protective armor designed for men, which can never offer them the protection they need and deserve.

At this website you’ll find articles on body armour and ballistic helmets for law enforcement, private security, and all the military applications. You’ll also receive important tips for increasing the lifespan of your protective vest, choosing the right piece of concealable armor to suit your specific needs, and how to wisely balance protection and comfort.
