    First, they are only bullet resistant. Mainly only handgun rounds unless you add rifle plates. You have to pay to play. My armor setup cost almost $1000.

    I was gonna say that too. There is only armor- like as in no guarantees. I can shoot any armor made with my rifle and it's gonna get defeated. Soldiers with M4's and AR-15's will have trouble getting through a good armor setup but then again even the best helmets made won't stop even that. Helmets stop stuff more like glancing blows and rocks falling and to protect from someone swinging a ball bat at your skull or falling off a vehicle and bashing your head. They don't really stop bullets, SURE as hell don't stop rifle rounds of just about any kind. And you have to keep in mind, too- if you are wearing just a vest and helmet, and the helmet doesn't really stop bullets, WTF happens when a round clips you in the shoulder socket or god forbid takes a kneecap out? Maybe hits a femoral artery? Now those guys who robbed that bank in LA and challeneged the whole police force, they were wearing some high tech serious balls-out full body armor. Even they were taking rounds in the feet and hands and that's what eventually got them.

    Might as well save your money. Buy once, cry once. It's not worth possibly your life relying on cheap or surplus armor.

    You have to think what is your life worth???

    Entry level in Galls or Gh might be appealing to you for the price stated.

    If you start looking into pointblank or dragonskin, pull out a loan.

    I'd skip the Dragon Skin due to questionable certification processes.
