A comfortable bullet proof vest?

SafeGuard Armor Presents: The StealthPRO

 

One of the main reasons most people avoid a covert Bullet Proof Vest is because they see it as a heavy and bulky piece of equipment that will be uncomfortable and obvious to wear. While this is certainly true of some covert vests, and traditional steel armors simply can’t be worn covertly, there are some covert vests available that are practically imperceptible. SafeGuard Armor has dedicated themselves to making their vests as comfortable as possible, and the StealthPRO Covert Bullet Proof Vest represents the ultimate in discreet, ergonomic, and breathable protection.

The StealthPRO from SafeGuard builds on their popular Stealth design to offer the high levels of protection usually found in a Tactical vest while staying breathable and comfortable to wear even for extended periods. The StealthPRO provides a high grade alternative to the Stealth as part of SafeGuard’s range of covert vests. Designed for a number of professions, from Private Security to Federal Officers, this unique vest offers a discreet and ergonomic bullet proof vest with the option of high caliber protection.

This unique covert bullet proof vest uses the discreet and breathable design of the Stealth with a 100% CoolMax lining to aid breathability and temperature-regulation. The flexible and adjustable cover draws moisture away from the skin, keeping the wearer cool and comfortable. In addition to the complete front, back, and side protection of the flexible and lightweight Kevlar panels, the StealthPRO features front and back pockets to house SAPI plates.

The StealthPRO can provide protection against even armor-piercing ammunition thanks to its compatibility with rigid plates of ceramic and/or polyethylene. The SAPI plates SafeGuard provides are far thinner and lighter than ever thanks to a dedication to the research and development of materials. This means that even at high levels of protection you can stay discreet, protected, and comfortable with the StealthPRO.

The StealthPRO is available now from the link below, and comes in a range of colors, sizes, and levels of protection.

How Can You Protect Yourself in a World Without Guns?

How Can You Protect Yourself in a World Without Guns?

 

If you went back to a time before guns, much like visiting the UK, you would still be in danger. As any good survivalist knows all too well, there are a million ways to die, and a great many of them can be avoided by taking simple precautions. For example, most illnesses that can prove fatal can be treated easily with a basic first aid kit. Even the smallest scratch can kill you when you have no access to fresh water or medicine.

Nevertheless, these threats are relatively benign compared to the numerous weapons and tools available to those who may try and attack you. After society collapses, your foresight may make you a target, and once guns- or rather bullets- have run out, you may be facing attackers armed with any number of improvised weapons. Here are just some of the things that a stab or spike proof vest can protect you against in a world without firearms.

 

Axes and Swords

As almost everyone is well aware, axes and swords are already deadly weapons. While they may be at the extreme end of the spectrum, edged weapons like these are fairly easy to obtain, and all too easy to do serious damage with. Indeed, in a time or place where guns no longer exist, these weapons are reliable and durable, and a good choice for a weapon. Furthermore, your bullet proof vest won’t stop them. These weapons can cut through the soft fabric in a vest. This is why you will need the highest levels of stab vest.

Spears and Arrows

These long-range weapons have been used for thousands of years to great effect, and while they may require more skill to use successfully than a sword, they can be just as deadly. Moreover, they give the attacker the benefit of range, meaning you can be attacked from even further away, and will rely more on your protection. These spiked weapons are capable of passing through a vest, and need hard materials like plastic to stop them.

Fists and Rocks

These two weapons combine all the positives of the weapons mentioned before, with far fewer disadvantages. Rocks and fists are perhaps the easiest tools to wield, and can both do serious damage. The damage done from fists can be relatively low, but may just be enough to give you an injury that you are not equipped to deal with. Rocks can be used at close or long range, and can do a lot of damage. Body armor will, surprisingly, help keep you safe against these weapons, as the Kevlar in the vest is capable of absorbing the energy.

Explosions

Depending on the size of the explosion, a vest may do you no good whatsoever; a hydrogen bomb, for example, will do quite a bit of damage. However, at range, and against low-grade explosives, a stab or spike proof vest may help save your life. Not only will the chainmail or plastic in the vest stop debris and fragmentation found in IEDs or grenades, but the Kevlar will absorb the energy of the explosion and could save you from potentially life-threatening injuries.

Teeth, Claws, and Horns

It should never be overlooked; animals can be just as deadly as humans. As every good wilderness expert knows, animals are far more deadly than most people realise, and can do a serious amount of damage. Body armor can help stop teeth, claws, and horns, as well as mitigate the impacts from attacks. This means that, when foraging for food, hunting, or being hunted, you can feel confident going up against such a primal force.

 

These are just a few examples of the kinds of things you may come up against in the wild, after the SHTF, or in a place where guns simply aren’t available. A stab or spike proof vest is a useful piece of equipment to have as it can protect against so many threats, but this should never be a substitute for your own experience and preparation.
