Everyone knows that guns are great for protecting yourself.
But most people forget that all adversarial contests involve both offense and defense. If you’ve got a gun – but the bad guy gets off the first shot with his gun – you might still get killed.
Moreover, while you might be a quicker draw and better shot than a single bad guy breaking into your house, you might get ambushed by terrorists, gang bangers or other bad guys … and got shot before you even have the time to draw, point and shoot.
That’s why military and law enforcement officers wear body armor. If you’re playing to win, you need defense as well as offense.
But civilians – especially those of us who work in financial services, legal, accounting or other professional settings – can’t walk around in bulky Kevlar vests.
But that doesn’t mean that we have to be defenseless …
A new company called Bullet Blocker (a subdivision of MJ Safety Solutions) tailors a new generation of Kevlar into everyday clothing. For example, t-shirts:
(The t-shirt, called the Gabriel, is used by some undercover police officers. And Bullet Blocker’s VP told us that secret service agents have purchased the Gabriel.)
Every single clothing garment made by Bullet Blocker meets NIJ IIIA standards that will stop a 357 Magnum, 44 Magnum, 9mm, .45, hollow point ammunition and more.
Threat level IIIA is the highest level of protection available in soft body armor, and is the provides the same anti-ballistic protective coverage area as traditional law enforcement body armor vests.
And all of Bullet Blocker’s clothing can be cleaned like normal, as the Kevlar panels are removable.
What’s even better, Bullet Blocker’s experienced tailors can satisfy your special requirements. For example, they were requested to make a bulletproof lab coat:
So they could certainly make you a bulletproof button down shirt, or anything else you might want.
Bespoke and bulletproof!
We tested the Gabriel and the long top coat. Specifically, we shot each with a ___ caliber gun. They worked as advertised … they blocked the bullets, and my punching bag (which I used as a test dummy) remained untouched.
We also tested the clothing for comfort. I hit the gym wearing the Gabriel and worked out like a maniac.
The Gabriel was as cool and breathable as my normal work out shirt.
The top coat is well-tailored from a blend of wool and cashmere. It’s stylish enough to wear at formal or casual events.
Bullet Blocker also makes a line of bulletproof briefcases, bags and backpacks.
So now even civilians working can protect ourselves while in professional or casual settings, and help shield ourselves from ambush by terrorists or thugs.
