So let’s get the biggest claim out of the way – affordability. The VP3 vest costs just $299.97 which is quite affordable compared to some other options currently on the market in the soft body armor category. The VP3 vest also claims to be breathable and in addition to its protection from handgun calibers up to .44 Magnum and stab and slash resistance, the vest is also modular and upgradeable.

The vest is also quite lightweight with the smaller variants such as the extra small weighing just 4lbs while the 4XL vest weighs 6.9 lbs. The vest also features Velcro pockets where you can add ballistic plates to provide additional protection against greater threats such as rifle calibers. BulletSafe has earned an NIJ standard of 0101.06 for its new vest and they are proud to also offer a 5-year warranty for the vest. The Vital Protection 3 Level IIIA vest is available now from BulletSafe and shipped to your door ready to use for $299.97.

    Nice; you can slot hard plates in there. Basically a revived Ranger Body Armor that can be worn concealed

      @Uncle Yar I'll take my mbav heavy rig or my shellback light rig over this personally but armor and pistols are two things where one size definitely doesn't fit all
