the first soft bullet proof vests

Posted on April 13, 2009 - Filed Under Bullet Proof |

As we know, the first soft bullet proof vests, were invented in Joseon Korea in the 1860s shortly after the French campaign against Korea.

Heungseon Daewongun ordered development of bullet proof vests because of increasing threats from Western armies. Kim Gi-Doo and Gang Yoon found that cotton could protect against bullets if 30 layers of cotton fabric were used.

The bullet proof vests were used in battle during the United States expedition to Korea, when the US Navy attacked Ganghwa Island in 1871.

The US Army captured one of the bullet proof vests  and took it to the US, where it was stored at the Smithsonian Museum until 2007.

The bullet proof vests has since been sent back to Korea and is currently on display to the public.
