Sometimes the only way to truly believe something is to see it for yourself, and for some that includes testing your own body armor.
Not everyone is willing to accept the word of someone else when it comes to the quality of a product. And when it comes down to a product that could potentially save your life you need to make sure that it is reliable.
But I’m still not convinced that this is the best way to test your own body armor.
Luckily for this fighter, the body armor worked. Even at point-blank range it was able to completely protect him from a round fired from an AK-47.
According to sources on Facebook, the fighter is a volunteer member of the Peoples Defense Unit in Syria fighting against the Islamic State.
While what he is doing in the video may not be the smartest move we have ever seen, you have to respect his willingness to move halfway around the world to join in a fight to protect those who can’t protect themselves.
