VESTPAK™ ballistic panels have been tested and rated to protect the wearer against threats within the specified NIJ rating level of your vest. No ARMOR IS 100% bulletproof. Specialized panels/armor-piercing bullets and ultra-high velocity rounds may not be stopped by armor. No soft bod armor/panels will completely protect against rifle or long gun ammunition. For protection against rifle threats, VESTPAK™ offers NIJ Level IV hard armor to be used in conjunction with your soft body armor. Always refer to your ballistic panels inserts to determine the level of your armor.
"It is absolutely essential that those who select body panel/armor and each officer who wears it realize that there is no such thing as a bulletproof vest/panel. The routine use of appropriate soft body armor/panel significantly reduces the likelihood of fatal injury, but 100% protection in all circumstances is impossible. Bod armor selection is to some extent a trade-off between ballistic protection and wearability. The weight and comfort of soft body armor are inversely proportional to the level of ballistic protection that it provides." -- National Institute of Justice
