Ballistic Body Armour is basically personal armor made from woven or laminated fibers (soft armour vests), which absorb the impact of the projectiles like sharpened knifes or bullets and reduces or stop their penetration to the human.  These vests are sometimes reinforced with metal or ceramic plates or inserts (hard armour vests) for imparting additional resistance to the projectile attack. Soft vests are mostly worn by police men, VIPs, security guards and bodyguards, however hard armour vests are mainly worn by soldiers, police tactical units, and hostage rescue teams.

Body Armour’s are made up of multi layers of highly strong fibers which catch and finally deform a bullet like in the shape of mushroom. Because of this situation, a major part of bullet’s kinetic energy is scattered over the larger area of the vest fiber. Some layers might also get penetrated but during the time period where in bullet deformation takes place, the energy is absorbed by a larger and larger fiber area. Although, a vest stops bullet penetration, but still during this course of action the vest and wearer absorbs the bullet’s impulse to cause blunt force trauma which is numerically expressed in terms of back face signature.

Protective Vests or body armours are of two kinds: – ballistic-resistant and stab-resistant body armor that protects the torso. Different kinds of armor are suitable for different kinds of threats. Ballistic-resistant body armor provides protection against bullet penetrations and the blunt trauma associated with bullet impacts. They further classified as soft and hard body armour. Soft Body Armour protects against handgun bullets and they are highly flexible and comfortable to wear. On other hand, hard body armour protect against rifle bullets and they are not so flexible. Stab-resistant body armor provide protection against knives and spikes. When given the choice between the soft & hard armor panel, the selection looks rather obvious initially. If there is a higher probability of shooting, one would prefer to use hard body armor with vest rather than opting for soft body armor. It’s important to make ourselves well aware about their working which will make our understanding more clearly about choosing the right body armor for the right situation.

As far as the legality regarding wearing Ballistic Body Armour is concerned, police and armed forces are for sure permitted to wear Bulletproof Vests in almost all parts of the world.  Although for civilians, it is a matter that depends upon the laws in their state or country. Generally, sellers of bulletproof vests make sure that the bullet proof vests are not sold to minors or persons with some criminal records.
