Bulletproof vests are sometimes referred to as a ballistic vest or bullet-resistant vest. This is an item of personal body armor. Bulletproof vests are worn to help absorb the impact and reduce or stop any penetration to the body from firearm fired projectiles or shrapnel from explosions. Most of the time it is worn only on the torso of the body, although in some extremely dangerous situations it would also be worn on the lower extremities. Soft vests are made of many layers of woven or laminated fibers. They can protect the wearer from small-caliber handgun and shotgun projectiles, and small fragments from explosives such as hand grenades.

They offer the unfaltering protection of a tactical vest, yet remain so comfortable and concealable that the wearer will forget they have it on. It is designed to be suitable for discrete use in high-risk situations as it is for extended wear.
