Basics of Body Armor – Gear Tasting Radio 67

By The ITS Crew

Body armor may sound simple in theory, but there are wide range of types and ratings available. This week on Gear Tasting Radio, we discuss some of the basics of body armor, including the National Institute of Justice rating system.

In addition, we discuss body armor materials and some good options for manufacturers for both armor and armor carrying solutions.
