Police bulletproof vest VS. Elite Armor
One of the questions we often get from out customers is whether there is difference between Elite Armor and the vests that the police carry. The answer of this question is that you are equally protected with a vest from Elite Armor or a vest from the police officer.
In the US police force 41,4% of the police officers use bulletproof vest in level NIJ II (2) and 35% of the officers are using bulletproof vests in an even higher level IIIA (3A).
This means that if you buy a bulletproof vest at Elite Armor, you are as well protected as 35% of the US police officers – and better protected than 41,4% of US police officers!
Bulletproof vests of standard NIJ IIIA protect you against weapon like 44Magnum, 9mm automatic weapon, 357SIG, 357Magnum, 9mm Luger and 40 Smith & Wesson.
Do you need more protection – e.g. against a AK47 or another rifle ammunition – you can buy a hard armor plate. With a hard armor plates, you get an even higher level of protection NIJ IV (4) – reaching the level of the bulletproof vests used by the US SWAT teams.
Note: The safety level of a bulletproof vest used in the Danish police is not something that is publicly available in Denmark.
