This also has advantages over the summer, allowing a better ventilation along the sides and the Triton plate carrier then is considerably fresher than a full body armor.

The the protection value is under U.S. NIJ-3A(04) standards, where the 3A represents a ballistic protection against small arms calibers 9x19 mm and .44 Magnum with normal ammunition. This is a realistic value protection against the most common pistols and revolvers here in Europe are privately owned (bulletproof vest belgium). It is wrong to compare all NIJ 3A vests as simular. There are regular updates performed by the NIJ 3A standards. This ballistic packages meet the NIJ 0101.04 update (-04) and were the American standards in 2001. The American standards NIJ 3A (04) are still today here in Europe quite large utility. After all these vests NIJ-3A (04) stop all normal 9x19 mm cartridges and also the heavy .44 Magnum revolver bullets. This type of jackets is quite large utility because they resist the realistic situation in Belgium where the possession of heavy magnum revolvers is permitted for citizens. Here in Belgium, the heavy magnum revolvers become fequent for up to caliber .44 magnum. Also, our NIJ-3A (04) package includes the powerful 7.62x25 mm cartridges stop from the Russian TT-33 Tokarev pistols regularly in possession of foreign criminal gangs.
This body armor also provides minimal protection against normal attacks with knives until 15 Joule.
