Keep yourself safe with these bulletproof jackets. They stop or reduce the impact of firearms and shrapnel from explosions. Made of ballistic material, they spread the impact of bullets to a larger area, thereby reducing their fatal action. They are mostly worn over your regular dress and come in darker colors. Police and the army frequently sport these jackets that look a lot like vests. They are not a men-only attire. Women can wear the protective gear too. You would find that these jackets usually come with warranties and are soft though they look heavy-duty.
