See Our Flex Fused Core™ IIIA Soft Armor pushed to the limit in this Body Armor 101 segment. Rob Orgel of ER Tactical tests various calibers including 9mm, .357 MAG, .45 ACP and .44 MAG at point blank range (3 feet). We use clay as a visual to demonstrate blunt force trauma, but note that actual human tissue behaves slightly different. This video will help you understand what to expect if your body armor takes an impact for very close distance. While taking a round at such a close distance is going to do some damage, it is a survivable ordeal when wearing quality body armor such as our Flex Fused Core™ IIIA Soft Armor.
