—————-

To whom it may concern,

I am Leo Prinsloo. I own the Edge Shooter Training Academy. The Edge are in the business of firearm training, security industry firearm training for the cash in transit, armed response units, advance driver training, close protection training, medical training in hostile environments to name a few.

I have served in the SAPS for 17 years from 1987 to 2004, and 12 years was within the Special Task Force Unit. The unit were responsible for Tactical hostage realis, and other high-risk operations. During this time, we have encountered lots of shooting incidents and have seen and experienced what an effective body armor can do, and the consequences it has if one does not wear any form of protection.

The Edge have fast knowledge on bullets and ballistics and have encountered many different types of body armor. I personally got saved by body armor during my police career.

I was asked by Jean Brown, from The Display Room, to test shoot a vest to see if the claims by the manufacturer can be trusted. I have done the test on the 2nd of July 2022, at PMP shooting range, in Pretoria-West, Gauteng.

The test was done at 4.00 pm the afternoon. The calibers that the manufacturer claims the vest will give protection against was the 7,62 x 51 NATO Ball and the 7,62 x 39 (AK47) rifle calibers.

The vest was shot at a distance of 25 meters.

The vest was attached to a molded rubber type dummy target and a carton paper target was inserted between the vest and the dummy, as that would show if there were any projectiles that penetrated the target.

The target was shot twice with both the calibers, i.e., R1 FN rifle an AK47. The shots were placed in close proximity to each other (less than 5 cm), also something that is not the way these tests get done normally. None of the shots produced any sharp projectiles that penetrated the target.

There was however a secondary bump produced to the back of the plate, that would probably break a rib, but NO penetration, which was very very impressive.

The added advantage to this particular plate is the weight. Compared to other steel plates and ceramic plates.

These plates are the lightest I have come across my entire career. The average weight of a steel plates is 2,2 kg and the weight of the entire body armor with steel plates and Kevlar panels is 7,5 to 8,4 kg.

In comparison these plates are only 0,5 kg per plate and both plates and Kevlar as a unit weighs 3,9 kg.

To an operator weight management, protection and mobility needs to be in a fine-tuned ration to each other. This body armor gives you everything in one product, piece of mind, but still light weight enough, not to be worn down if the vest is worn for prolonged periods of time. The vest is light and compact and gives a snug fit to the wearer, the vest is also much more comfortable for female operators.

This is not a certified test by any means, but this is my personal opinion, as to what I have seen, and based on my experience with ballistic body armor over many years.

For any further information, do not hesitate to contact me.

Kind regards,
