A bulletproof vest is a protective equipment. Putting on body armor has a great safety guarantee on the battlefield, but some people have said that body armor can prevent bullets, but it can not prevent cold steel, what's going on?
In fact, this has something to do with the material of the bulletproof vest. You must know that from the material point of view, a bulletproof vest is divided into a soft bulletproof vest, hard bulletproof vest, and soft-hard composites bulletproof vest. Soft body armor is mainly made of Kevlar. Made of strong fibers, such body armor is lightweight but not very protective.
The hard bulletproof plate is made of metal, ceramics, and other materials, so the hard bulletproof vest can protect against bullets and cold weapons, but it will still be greatly impacted when attacked, causing internal injuries, and a bit heavy, The quality body armor will be a little inconvenient.
The Aramid soft bulletproof plate is textured, which can block the bullet, but for cold steel like a blade, the sharp tip may penetrate the gap of the protective fiber and hurt the human body, which is why everyone says that the body armor cannot The reason for cold weapons.
So, If you won't get the bulletproof vest that can block the bullet and block the cold steel also, you can choose the soft-hard composites bulletproof vest. It combines the advantages of hard body armor and soft body armor, which can not only prevent bullets but also prevent cold weapons but compared to soft body armor, the weight is still a bit heavy.
