A vest, usually worn by police in potentially dangerous combat situations involving guns. The vest is intended to stop low-calibre projectiles shot at the body of the person.

Todays vests are typically made of Kevlar®. Despite what people usually think, regular vests can only stop pussy rounds... A normal 7.62mm target rifle shooting round will make quick business of the Kevlar®...not to mention a sniper using armour-piercing ammunition!
