Body Armor Protective Levels
The NIJ (National Institute of Justice) ballistic resistance standard classifies body armor by levels of ballistic performance. In order for products to be classified at bulletproof, the NIJ's standard requires that the bullet not perforate the insert, panel or vest and offers blunt trauma protection. This is the only standard recognized by law enforcement and military in the United States. All Diamondback Armor USA ballistic protective body armor is proudly made in the U.S.A.!
