Before buying a police bullet proof vest, you have to make sure that it is authentic first. Your life depends on it, and you do not want to spend on a ballistic vest that cannot protect you from bullet shots and knife stabs. To check the authenticity of a bullet proof vest, you have to pay attention to its label. The label must contain the following information:
· Size and Lot number- The size tells you if the police bullet proof vest is small, medium, large, and extra large. You should know your size before buying one so that the police bullet proof vest will fit your perfectly. The lot number should be written as well on the label of the ballistic vest.
· Model and Manufacturer- The label of the police bullet proof vest should tell you also of the model of the vest. Is it Kevlar, Goldflex or Dyneema? Along with the model comes the name of the manufacturer of the bullet proof vest.
· Rating- The rating of the police bullet proof vest should be included on the label as well. It will tell you if the vest is a Type I, Type II, Type III, or Type IV. If the vest that you are buying is between the ratings Type I and Type III, it should include additional information of disclaimer that it cannot protect the wearer from very sharp weapons and rifle bullet fires. If this disclaimer warning is not present, you should return the police bullet proof vest from the store where you bought it.
· Issue Date and Serial Number- The date of issuance and the serial number of the bullet proof vest should be indicated as well on the label.
If any of these information are not included in the label of the police bullet proof vest, you should return it immediately from where you buy it. The authenticity of the police bullet proof vest is important for your safety and protection.
