PPSS Group has confirmed its new NIJ Std 0101.06 Level IIIA bullet-resistant vests also offer protection from full contact shots.

“Too many law enforcement officers are being shot by their own firearms from extremely close range,” said PPSS Group CEO Robert Kaiser. “Understanding this particular risk was crucial during the development phase of our new high performance body armour.”

PPSS Group’s latest body armour also offer consistent protection from Tokarev Ball 7.62 x 25mm and Makarov 9 x 18mm, handgun rounds primarily used in the Russian Federation and Eastern European countries.

This design has been successfully tested against a general issue taser device, the company says, which was recently conducted in a realistic operational setting—with a no effect on the wearer.

The hybrid ballistic package has been created using a new ultra-resilient European ballistic material, an integrated solution that combines high ballistic performance with a high level of comfort, improved flexibility, and substantially reduced Back Face Deformation (BFD), according to PPSS Group.
