We have to consider several things when purchasing and wearing concealment body armor. With all the options on the market, we must look first at overall applicable to our lives and what is the likelihood it will help.
Let’s start with what clandestine body armor can do for me? Low-profile body armor is usually IIIA rated. This means it will handle almost all pistol threats to include 44 magnum. More often than not we're likely to encounter 9mm pistols and this body armor is well rated to handle that type of threat. As we understand the ammo shortages we can make sense of a lot of information that’s being handed to us. What’s not available is obviously some of the most common types of ammunition. This shows us that 9mm is by far the most common ammunition in pistol ammo, therefore, is the most likely threat.
Just like our everyday carry firearms, we have to scrutinize its ability versus its versatility. When we put our Glock 19 in our holster and then place our shirt over it, we check in the mirror to make sure it doesn’t obviously print as we walk through the workplace as well as when we tie our shoes or grab groceries from the top shelf. We need to have the same considerations for our body armor. Low-profile body armor is usually the soft type. A great option is the Spartan Armor Concealable Wrap Around Vest. Unlike most low-profile kits where you add a soft body armor insert, this kit wraps entirely around you and maintains a low profile.
