The protection value HG1A-KR1 + QD-PEP according to the English HOSDB standards, which HG1A stands for ballistic protection against small arms calibers 9x19 mm and .357 Magnum with normal ammo. This is a realistic value protection against the most common pistols and revolvers for criminals. The value KR1 is a cut and puncture resistance rating and a protection against normal attacks with knives. Given the increasing number of attacks with knives, this is also a realistic protection value. The value QD-PEP is an additional protection against the special stop bullets used by many police services in Europe. The QD-PEP ammo is harder than normal ammunition and also has a larger capacity than normal drill ammunition. This addition is designed to address because even some heavier types of bullet proof vests the QD-PEP muniie can not stop
The stabbing resistance KR1 is based on the English HOSDB standards which a specially designed knife is used for the broad spectrum of knife attacks on police officers to replicate. This protection is based on a knife attack with an energy of 24 joules, in which the tip of the blade is not more than 7 mm may penetrate through the vest and with an energy of 36 joules, the point may not penetrate deeper than 20 mm. This is a realistic protection against attacks with pocket knives and daggers.
