Testing a Stab Vest and A Cut Resistant Shirt

DT4EMS logo nu1

I do not claim to be some world champion fighter.  This passion turned profession has me doing what I can to provide healthcare with a realistic understanding of violence in healthcare and what we can do to Escape, Mitigate and Survive the violent encounter. 


Here are the tools we will test the equipment against.                                                                What a uniform shirt looks like after the first part of the test.














 Our friends over at BodyArmorUSA.com let me borrow some equipment to test. The PPSS Group Cut-Tex PRO Cut/Slash Resistant T-Shirt and the PPSS Hi-Viz Stab & Blunt Force Trauma Resistant Vest.

 Here is what I found as I tested the equipment.
