No armor is one-hundred percent effective in all situations. Body armor will protect you from the vast majority of ballistic threats; however the following may defeat body armor. Rifle rounds, high velocity pistol ammunition, Pistol ammo fired from a rifle barrel, armor piercing ammunition, shots fired at unusual angles, sharp-edged or pointed instruments (e.g., knives, icepicks, etc.) and other unusual ammunition or situations. Also, at some angles projectiles can slide, or deflect off the edges of Armor, or ricochet. Furthermore, projectiles that are successfully stopped by armor will always produce some level of injury, resulting in severe bruising, broken bones, and possibly serious internal injury or even death. Ballistic steel body armor defeats most projectiles, but no vest on makes you invulnerable to all threats. Getting shot always carries serious risk. By buying armor you assume ALL risks of use or misuse, and agree not to hold us liable in any way. In addition, you are responsible to ensure that your ballistic panels are positioned inner side in, and outer side out if applicable.
