“PPSS have now launched one of the lightest and thinnest NIJ Level IIIA+ bullet proof vests in order to offer those who protect and serve the best possible concealable protection” Robert Kaiser, their CEO states.

Made out of high performance Dyneema SB51, this new bullet proof vest also offers additional protection from Tokarev Ball 7.62 x 25mm and Makarov 9 x 18mm.

Waterproof and breathable Cordura 180 and groundbreaking temperature controlling Outlast space technology, are two further exceptional materials used for this great new body armour.

A specially developed 0.85mm trauma liner provides extremely effective blunt trauma protection. With a weight of only 1.65kg, a thickness of just 6mm and protective area of 0.28sqm, this new outstanding bullet proof vest certainly means business. “Every gram we can shave off the weight of body armour will improve the comfort of the wearer, and subsequently reduce the risk of human error due to fatigue and exhaustion”.

“Our ambitious goal was to develop one of the thinnest, lightest and most comfortable bullet proof vests, and it is now crystal clear that together with our manufacturing partners in Sweden we have successfully reached our objective”, says Robert Kaiser.

Available test results also confirm the company's claim the body armour offer an exceptional high level of protection from hypodermic needles. PPSS bullet proof vests are initially available as covert (model: CV1) and executive (model: EV1) version, in standard sizes ranging from S to XXXL.

UK based PPSS Group is specialised in the development of body armour, bullet proof vests, stab vests and cut resistant clothing, aiming to protect police, military, emergency services, prisons and private security professionals all over the world.

Robert Kaiser, CEO of PPSS Group is frequently invited to speak in front of large audiences about the latest body armour developments within homeland security and domestic frontline services. He is acting as body armour consultant for a number of organisations, associations and government departments. His genuine passion for personal safety and personal protection is widely respected.
