It's a really big vest

I was concerned that this vest wouldn’t be big enough for me. I’m 6’1″ and 420 lbs. It easily fit me. I feel like I could gain 50 lbs. and still fit this thing.

What is Level IIIA, and why does it matter?

Level IIIA (3A) is the third-highest level of protection rated by the NIJ; usually the highest level available in soft body armor. This rating means that the 4XL BulletSafe vest will protect you from everything from a BB gun up to a .44 magnum. Don't settle for other vests that only meet the requirements for class IIA or class II. Class IIIA is the best protection you can find in a bulletproof vest.

Is this the best 4XL bulletproof vest I can buy?

The BulletSafe 4XL Vest is the best value among bulletproof vests. If you have to buy your own vest, taking cost and level of protection into account, it is definitely the best vest.

The 4XL BulletSafe Vest is available in six sizes:

S, M, L, XL, 2XL, and 4XL. You can order the 4XL size from this page. For the other sizes, click here. Your bulletproof vest size might be different from your shirt size.

Another note on sizing your bulletproof vest:

Most importantly, your bulletproof vest should fit properly around your belly. Because of the adjustable shoulder straps, the length of the vest is not as important; the diameter of the vest around your midsection is the important thing to consider. If you are a skinny man with a big belly, you should order at the top of your size range so that the vest fits around your midsection. If you are very fit with large arms, legs, and chest, and a slender waist, you should order at the bottom of your size range.

What doesn't it protect against?

No vests can withstand every bullet, and a Level IIIA vest won't protect against heavy rifle fire by itself. But the BulletSafe vest's protection level can be upgraded by adding armor plates to its front and rear plate pockets. For this reason, we also sell ballistic plates.

What bullets does this vest protect against?

A Level IIIA vest can protect against almost all handgun rounds. Class IIIA vests (including ours) are tested with bullets all the way up to a .44 Magnum, which is a very powerful bullet. This vest will protect against smaller rounds, too. We can comfortably say that a Class IIIA vest will offer protection against almost any handgun you might encounter, and definitely any concealed handgun. Most US shooting injuries are from handgun violence, so the BulletSafe vest will protect you against most gun danger.

Almost anybody can order our bulletproof vests.

We can ship bulletproof vests to 49 states (but not to Connecticut or other countries). It is illegal for convicted felons to order and own a bulletproof vest, but legal for anyone else. The law does not stop you from being safe.

Who buys bulletproof vests?

Bullet proof vests are popular for security guards, private investigators, police officers, pawn brokers, repo men, gas station attendants, hunters, shooting enthusiasts, preppers, and anybody else who wants to be protected from the dangers of gun violence.

Why is it shaped like a vest?

Over time, body armor design has taken on a vest shape because it protects your vital organs while keeping it lightweight, comfortable, and non-restrictive of movement. For these reasons, a collarless vest is the ideal shape for body armor.

What are the front and back pouches for?

A Level IIIA Vest can't stop rifle or heavier weapon rounds alone; for those you'll need ballistic plates. The pockets in the front and rear of our vests perfectly fit these armor plates.

Where can I buy the BulletSafe vest?

Customer Reviews
Bulletsafe Vest

Recieved my vest very quickly, appears to be top notch quality. Sizing chart was accurate to my needs. Still working on breaking it in. Not a concealable style vest. Great value for the price all around. Will be ordering more gear from these guys in the near future!

Best vest for the money.

Purchased this vest in 08. I have upgraded it twice. Recently added the tactical front and Alpha rifle plates.

Very satisfied. It’s not a concealable vest by itself if you have a tee shirt. I didn’t purchase for concealed reasons.

I’m 6ft 4 215 pounds. Size chart calls for a medium. I ordered a large and it is a great fit.

Great service
Arnold Griffis, Jr

Ordered On Saturday when was closed shipped out Monday arrived today. Might take some time to get it worked out to fit underneath uniform shirt. Missed the free patch for security lol but I’ll get one from here again awesome service

Fantastic product
Brian Price

I have purchased the body armor, the uniform carrier and the ballistic ceramic plate. I have owned several different brands of body armor over the some much more expensive. Bullet Safe had a great product and the customer service is 5 ?. I had a button break on my uniform carrier and e-mailed them requesting some extra buttons they immediately shipped me out a brand new carrier at no charge and it arrived within the week. So I’m very impressed with my products and the customer service. Extremely good quality products definitely a great buy.

Excellent speed of service!
Kent Fountain-Rose

I received my vest on Wednesday 1/22/20 And I am pleased with it. definitely will buy from Bullet Safe again. Thanks for the protection!

Vest looks nice. Is it just the best or does this come with the soft body plates as well?

It is a complete bulletproof vest. It is perfect for police, security, and armored car work. This vest is worn daily by over 40,000 people. For most people with dangerous jobs, it is everything they need.

Great products
bryan S.

What can I say….. great quality products, excellent customer service ( which many businesses have no idea) and very fast delivery. I purchased two lllA vests for wife and myself (wife-paramedic myself part time security). I have no problem recommending your company. Thank you!

Great life insurance
Chris Herring

So far I’m happy with the vest in it’s quality but if I had gone by the size chart I would have a big problem. According to the chart I was to get a small but the the lil voice in my head said get a Med. The Med is very snug and I really should have gotten a large. As long as I don’t want to wear the vest over a thick shirt it will work.

Love it!

Even tho they say it’s not concealable, IT IS, if you wear a cotton blend jacket over it and have your straps on properly. The size for me fits perfect and feels oh’ so secure! Payed the money for 1-2 day shipping and came in 21 hours flat, great job. After a while of wearing I’m 100% sure you’ll get used to it like wearing an under jacket! I give 5 stars. Also has backside protection for the people who don’t play too fair.
