Testing


We have a singular goal and that is to produce the most advanced and safest bullet proof vests available anywhere. Our body armor is meticulously engineered and outperforms government, law enforcement, and military standards. We use only the highest quality, lab tested, super dense, American made armor plates. All of our body armor exceeds United States government standards for ballistic resistance provided through the U.S Department of Justice and National Institute of Justice. All armor also exceeds every government stab and spike protection benchmark. Every piece of body armor is inspected, tested, manufactured, and hand assembled in the USA. All testing is also performed at impartial 3rd party government accredited weapons labs. We believe proper testing and assembly can only happen in the U.S and at government approved arms testing facilities.The Best Bulletproof Vest isn’t just a name it is what we do and it’s all we do.
We only make one vest because there is only one Best Bulletproof Vest.

 

We coordinated with current and former military personnel in multiple branches of the armed forces. We also received detailed consulting from paramilitary forces and mercenary units to hone our vest down to the most utilitarian design while still implementing the most useful tactical achievements that integrate seamlessly and perform in both the lab and on the field.

Testing:

Our armor is tested exclusively by government accredited weapons laboratories based in the United States. Any armor used in our vests must not only meet government weapons grade standards but exceed them by a significant margin in order to ensure that our ballistic vests are far superior even to those held to national, military, and law enforcement standards. To ensure proper oversight and execution on every vest all business operations, sourcing, materials, testing, and assembly are performed only in the United States, 

We only offer the highest quality body armor in the United States, the military tactical vests and armor plate carriers that hold that armor must also meet our insane quality standards. An innumerable amount of tactical advancements have been implemented into the plate carrier systems that come standard with all of our body armor packages.

Testing Standards


"The NIJ standard is the only nationally accepted standard for the body armor worn by law enforcement
-The United States National Institute of Justice

We use the United States Government's National Institute of Justice Standards as a rating system. We test our bullet proof vests at government sanctioned weapons labs using those ratings as benchmarks. Every piece of our armor exceeds all government safety standards for ballistic resistance and materials set through the United States Department of Justice by the National Institute of Justice. We consider the government rating used for law enforcement and the U.S military a bare minimum, not a goal. Our armor will always surpass its listed government rating in every metric from ballistic resistance all the way through plate size. On every single testing metric listed by the NIJ The Best Bulletproof Vest outperforms the government standard.

NIJ Body Armor Testing Levels & NIJ Body Armor Standards

NIJ Body Armor Testing Process

The National Institute of Justice is a branch of the U.S. Department of Justice and provides NIJ levels as government standards of stab and ballistic resistance for body armor and bullet resistant materials. In order for a bulletproof vest to be approved by the NIJ, all armor and materials must go through a week long torture test, followed by a controlled firing by a programmable cannon. The same armor put through the torture test must also meet or exceed NIJ standards at the subsequent firing. This ensures that regardless of the environment or handling of the bullet resistant materials, the armor will remain bulletproof even after being exposed to extreme heat, freezing cold, and harsh abrasion. This test is often filmed and must be administered at a independent government approved third party testing facility / weapons laboratory in the U.S.

Every bullet proof vest offered here at The Best Bulletproof Vest has been thoroughly tested in United States government approved facilities and far exceeds any government standards for its stated NIJ rating.

Every aspect of our armor surpasses the highest government standards including the NIJ Standards & standards in place for police, military, and civilians.

The Best Bulletproof Vest is guaranteed and proven to be the best body armor the world has to offer. All armor is hand made, 100% sourced and assembled in America, and tested in U.S. government sanctioned weapons laboratories to exceed all government regulations both for NIJ Standard-0115.00 for spike and edged blade protection and NIJ Standard-0101.06 Level III for ballistic protection.
