Vests Are So Not In Right Now: Bulletproof Polos

bulletproof-polo.jpg

Look out your kitchen window. Your patio furniture is all wrecked to shit, isn't it? I know, that last BBQ of yours got out of hand. Shots were fired. Enter the $3,500 bulletproof polo from Miguel Caballero's Black Label Collection, just the thing you need to protect your neck* while flippin' burgs or refilling the beer cooler. It may look like a regular-ass polo, but oh no -- underneath that 100% cotton exterior comes three different levels of bullet protection. Me? I want the one that can stop a cannonball.

OPTION IIA: 9mm / 40 Smith and Wesson FMJ

OPTION II: 9mm / .357 Magnum / 38 Super / Mini Uzi submachine gun
OPTION IIIA: Uzi machine gun / MP5,MP9 submachine gun / 44 Magnum SJHP / Stab-proof

Haha -- there's even a stab-proof option! Unfortunately, all of them will only stop bullets from the most amateur of assassins. I've played Counter-Strike folks, I only aim for the head. "No you don't." Okay so maybe I flashbanged my whole team and got us all killed.

*Protection actually starts below the neck.

    Even bullets cannot stop this douche.

  • For the combat (conscious) guy who simultaneously wants to look like a douche.

    What are they made of, mithril? 
    I think I saw the manufacturer on some TV show once.

  • All dude needs is a leather jacket and its the Hoff from Knight Rider!

  • Obviously directed towards people with no knowledge of bullet protection, what's the supposed diff between protection from 9mm rounds and "mini Uzi submachine gun"?
    It can take multiple hits from 9mm and not give out? Or is it action movie proof?

  • Is this the same company that makes the bulletproof suits?

  • Slurm_Cola

    If I pop the collar will this offer protection to my neck as well, bro?

  • no mmz
