Easily concealed beneath a working uniform, the BulletSafe Vital Protection 3 (VP3) Vest is ideal for law enforcement, security personnel and anyone working in a dangerous profession. At $299.97, this vest is affordable for working-class citizens and provides the necessary peace-of-mind to perform their job and return home safely.

Able to protect against most calibers up to .44 Magnum, this American-made vest is lightweight and fits snugly to its wearer via the provided height-and-weight chart. With American-based manufacturing, the size specifications are reliable and simple. The XS vest weighs 3.9lbs, and the largest size, 4XL, weighs 6.9lbs. It has wrap-around, front & rear ballistic panels to maximize protection over the heart, lungs and other vital organs, and it can carry even larger plates in its Velcro pockets to provide Level IV protection against rifle calibers.

Boasting an NIJ Standard of 0101.06, dozens of BulletSafe vests were subjected to sustained, harsh treatment to simulate years of hard use. The BulletSafe vests passed these tests with flying colors. Because the vests are Made in the USA, they boast modularity and unrivalled longevity. More importantly, BulletSafe is an American company that provides on-the-spot customer service and product expertise.

The VP3 Vest arrives work-ready at your door, and it boasts a 5-year warranty as a testament to BulletSafe’s faith in the VP3’s protective capability.
