Video: Will a Bulletproof Vest Stop an Arrow?

This could be the ultimate test of a bulletproof vest.

Have you ever wondered if a bulletproof vest could stop an arrow? If it can stop a bullet, an arrow shouldn’t be a problem, right?

Well, wonder no more. These folks have tested one with both a compound bow and a crossbow.

Watch the results and see for yourself.

The compound had a Muzzy broadhead, which appeared to only poke the skin. I’d consider that a success.

However, the crossbow had quite a bit more penetration. In fact, it could’ve been potentially fatal. Without a bulletproof vest, however, both shots would’ve been a clean pass-through at that shooting distance.
