Will a Bulletproof Vest Stop an Arrow?

Check out this ultimate test of a bulletproof vest when it goes head-to-head with a crossbow and a compound bow. 

Can a bulletproof vest also stop arrows? Well, wonder no more. Some folks have tested a vest with a compound bow and a crossbow.

Watch the results and see for yourself.

The compound had a Muzzy broadhead, and it appears it would have only poked the skin. I’d consider that a success.

However, the crossbow had quite a bit more penetration, and in fact, it could have been potentially fatal. Without a bulletproof vest, both shots would have been a clean passthrough at that shooting distance.
