Bulletproof Vest, Level IIIA+
What is level IIIA and why is it the right vest for me? Level IIIA (3A) is typically the highest level of protection you will find in soft armor. Our vest will protect you from everything from a BB gun to a .44 magnum. That is great protection. Don't settle for other vests that offer level IIA or level II. You want level IIIA.
What is IIIA+? The plus is not an official designation, but our company and others use it to indicate that the vest also offers protection from stabbing, knives, and slash protection. Not all ballistic materials will stop a knife, but the BulletSafe Bulletproof Vest does, so we call it IIIA+.
Is this the best bulletproof vest on the market? The BulletSafe Vest is the best value in bulletproof vests. If you have to buy your own vest with real money, it is by far the best bulletproof vest.

XS Vests are too small to contain an accessory pocket on the front and back, so they lack this feature.

Another note on bulletproof vest sizing: Your bulletproof vest needs to fit in one main area: around your stomach. The length of the vest is not important as you can use the shoulder straps to adjust it; the important factor to consider is the diameter of your midsection. If you have a large belly try to order at the top of your size range so that you can fasten the vest around your mid-section. If you are a competitive cyclist or bodybuilder with a slim waist, order at the bottom of your size range.
What bullets can this vest protect against? A Class IIIA vest can protect against almost all handgun rounds. IIIA vests (ours included) are tested with bullets up to a .44 Magnum, which is a really powerful round. This vest will protect against smaller rounds as well. We are quite comfortable in saying that a class IIIA vest will protect you from almost any handgun you will encounter and certainly any handgun that someone conceals. Handgun violence makes up most of the shooting injuries in the US, so this bulletproof vest offers a great level of protection for you.
