Notwende @ http://notwende.wordpress.com commented on my recent post concerning the possible future of body armor, and included this video. It is not very long and it could be important to you. The shank-resistant armor worn in detention centers is a very different critter compared to bullet-resistant street armor. You can pay an exorbitant price for a vest that incorporates resistance to blades AND bullets. Not having seen such a vest, I am guessing it will be thick, heavy, and hot. Perhaps one of my readers can comment from experience. Anyway, watch the video. If you were unaware of the differences in armor it will open your eyes.
