We like the fact that all of their armor is made with the same ceramic of alumina and polyethylene materials as other high end armors are (i.e. ESAPI and SAPI),and that it is tested at the same facilities and by the same people who inspect and certify other high end tactical body armor. Though their armor is of the same make and certifications, it is much more affordable than other armor. It is also a bit heavier and thicker than more expensive vests. The vest comes with level IIIA soft armor and a plate pocket on the front and the back to hold their level IIIA ceramic plates. When used in conjunction with one another, the plates and the soft armor offer a combined level VI protection package that blasts the competition in price.
Let’s get specific for a moment. The vest weighs in from 5.2-6.4 pounds depending on the size without the plates, and sells at a very low price of $299. The plates weigh in at 5.65 pounds a piece, and they sell at only $169.99 each. Now, you’re probably wondering how Bullet Safe can offer ESAPI quality plates at the price of a steel plate and a soft armor carrier for them at such an affordable rate. Well like I said, these guys are a relatively new company and are marketing specifically to the basic security officer and the emergency prepared individual. The vest doesn’t cost as much as a higher end vest for several reasons. First, its written right on their website that Bullet Safe makes less profit on their products in order to offer the quality to the base end of the industry’s customers. We have spoken to them in detail and they are working hard to even save $5.00 where they can. Second, the vest cover does not come with all the bells and whistles. There are no quick releases, M.O.L.L.E. webbing, or anything fancy. It is a simple, comfortable platform that gets the job done without your wallet taking a beating. Also, though it isn’t exactly a feather weight vest that you may be able to get from a higher end company, but, the vest doesn’t have a competitors price of $600-$800 either. Bullet Safe has really done a great job of matching quality with a more all around affordable price.
This vest offers multiple wearing styles. You can chose to wear it outside your clothing with or without the plates inserted for protection on the job, or it is slim and comfortable enough to wear under your uniform or outer shirt. Finally, let’s say you’re one of those guys that wants to have the option of having the extra protection of plates but you don’t necessarily want or need to wear them all day. An easy solution would be to wear the soft armor vest while on patrol and if the need for that extra protection arises, simply have the plates staged in a separate plate carrier and slip it on. Or, if you are wearing the vest as an outer, simply slip the plates in the pocket. This allows you to never have to leave the protection of your armor while still adding more protection to meet or exceed the threat. This is one vest we definitely recommend.

After searching for an excellent tactical bullet proof vest for those in the fields of entry level law enforcement and emergency preparedness, this is the one we chose! We feel it is the ULTIMATE in body armor.
The armor is made with the same ceramic of alumina and polyethylene materials as other high end armors (i.e. ESAPI and SAPI). Bullet Safe’s body armor is also tested at the same facilities and by the same people who inspect and certify other high end tactical body armor. BUT, though their armor is of the same make and certifications, it is much more affordable than other armor. They do this by making a very simple designed carrier whose sole purpose is to carry your armor.
The vest comes with level IIIA soft armor and a plate pocket on the front and the back to hold their level IIIA ceramic plates. When used in conjunction with one another, the plates and the soft armor offer a combined level VI protection package that blasts the competition in price.
A Class IIIA vest can protect against almost all handgun rounds. IIIA vests (ours included) are tested with bullets up to a .44 Magnum, and will protect against smaller rounds as well. Bullet Safe is 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. No vest will protect against every bullet, and a IIIA vest won't protect against heavy rifle fire without added armor plates. For added protection against rifle fire, you will need the plates that slip into the pockets or can be placed in an armor carrier. You can purchase this by following this link.

Please use this helpful BulletSafe size chart. We use your height and weight as a good way to fit a bulletproof vest. This size might be different than what size shirt you wear. Bulletproof vests do not stretch, and not have to contain your shoulders so you cannot order them the same way that you order a t-shirt.
