Watch: Are Bulletproof Vests Arrow-Proof?

Remember BulletSafe, the company that makes low-cost bulletproof vests, plates, backpack panels, and even bulletproof baseball caps? Well, here’s a video they did to see whether a vest that will stop  bullets will also stop arrows from a compound bow and a crossbow.

Company president Tom Nardone joins an archery expert (“his buddy Bernie”) to shoot Muzzy broadheads into a BulletSafe vest.

They start with a compound bow, which does better than you might have expected, but the crossbow is the real eye-opener.

Did this turn out the way you thought it would? Watch, then let us know in the comments below.
