Bullet Resistant Vest

A bulletproof vest is designed to capture a projectile, and provides protection against Level III-A- 9mm and .44 mag and by default it’s NOT stab proof as it’s an additional and you need to mention it specifically if it’s required.

Generally bulletproof vest has a predetermined life expectancy of 5 years. But there are several factors that come into play. The NIJ has conducted a study which shows that factors such as: How much has the vest been used - How has it been maintained – If the vest has fit properly (most people lose/gain weight over the years) - and whether it is generally worn down, what the straps look like, who has worn it. So keep all the above factors in mind one can decide the condition of Vest.
It is not illegal to buy a bulletproof or stab proof, but one need to check with their own country if it is legal to wear or if there are any restrictions.
