Though the "bullet-proof" vest is a mythical beast, modern ballistic armor is stronger and lighter than ever before since the advent of the Kevlar fiber. This book details its myriad uses, from bullet-resistant suits, vests, goggles, gloves and other clothing, to armor for land vehicles and aircraft, shields for riot police and SWAT teams and even rings and bomb-suppression blankets as utilized by bomb squads. Includes lists of manufacturers, dealers and distributors.
