If you are moving without an armored vehicle, there are chances that you may be faced with a potential threat. In such a case, close combat may cause serious injuries. Bulletproof vests make sure that you do not get injured, even when you are face to face with danger. These vests are specially designed to protect you or mitigate damage when confronted with ballistics.
A head injury could cost you your life, and therefore it is necessary to give your head adequate protection – especially when you are in strife prone areas. Bulletproof helmets are designed using special composite materials which would protect your head from ballistic and traumatic injuries. The helmet may or may not come with a shield for your face. Depending on how much protection you desire, you can order your helmet accordingly.
Tactical armored vests can be worn externally or under your clothes as well. Either way, it is enough to give you ballistic protection even in close combat. If you have some threat, or sense some potential danger, you should use these vests to protect you from it. These professionally designed vests may be concealable, if you don’t want anyone to know that you’re wearing them.
The biggest advantage of having a bulletproof jacket is that it can be worn over your clothes. This is ideal when you do not need to have your armor concealed. Such a jacket can be easily worn and removed. Since it is also worn over your clothes and does not need to be concealed, it can be as thick as you want. Usually, the thicker the jacket is, the more protection it would give you. However, it should not be too thick.
