Body Armor Question
#1
Does anyone make a Kevlar vest that would fit a large guy? Like 3x large? Would kevlar stop just pistol rounds or rifle also? I honestly dont know much about these things. If anyone can give me some advice/suggestions it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you. Dom

If you can handle the weight, then check out AR500 Armor

When you get into the ceramic hard armor plates you have different types and different costs. There are one hit plates and multi hit plates. Then you have stand alone plates and plates that work in conjunction with the level IIIA armor you wear underneath. (A little scary if you ask me)

I've been looking hard at AR500 armor for awhile. You can get a pretty decent setup that will take multiple hits from a 308 for under 300 bucks. I'm sure if you look around you can find a plate carrier that will fit you, then just throw the AR500 plates in there.
