Abstract

With other personal protective equipment including the helmet, the ballistic vest has been widely utilized for individual protection against fragmentation as well as handgun and rifle projectiles. In Iraq and Afghanistan, American military personnel have used ballistic vests to protect themselves from injuries from everything from high-velocity bullets to bomb fragments (Michael, 2006).
