Commentary and Opinions

As any Security Operative will be aware, body armor is a wide-ranging term that covers a number of products, and understanding exactly which is best for you can be difficult. Being aware of the different options available to you allows you to better understand how to keep yourself protected. However, even after you have chosen the correct style and level of protection according to the environments you will find yourself in, it can be difficult to know how best to care for your armor.
Body armor should be considered a necessary piece of equipment for all Security Personnel. This is not only because of the dangers inherent to their occupation, but because of the myriad benefits a bullet proof vest for example can offer. Protective clothing is more accessible than ever before, and the protection it can provide is unparalleled. This is why it should be considered necessary for all Personnel. However, body armor is a very broad term, and understanding what exactly is available will help ensure the right protection is utilized.
