History of Bulletproof vest

Posted on April 9, 2009 - Filed Under Bullet Proof |

Bulletproof vest was be invent long long ago,when the French went to war against Korea, Heungseon Daewongun ordered the production of soft bulletproof vest to counter the increasing threat of invasion from western armies.

In the 1880’s an Arizona man Mr. Goodfellow started playing with silk for use in bulletproof vest. He created prototypes that used woven jackets sewn with 30 layers of silk instead of cotton, which was very similar to Gambesons. This design was significantly more effective than the design made of cotton. Using the research from Goodfellow, Zeglen from Illinois developed and marketed bulletproof vest that cost apx 800 dollars in 1914. This was recognized all over the works and was proven to be successful at saving lives.

As many years passed firearms became super powerful and more development was needed to combat high velocity bullets. The bulletproof vest eventually became obsolete at weapons and bullets technology advanced.

From 1860s to now,we depend on bulletproof vest to protect us in danger. Being uncomforable with a bulletproof vest  is a small price to pay for the benefits.
