They say that you can’t judge a book by its cover, but that metaphor applies to all sorts of things. Take shirts, for instance. You might glance at the polo above, and think that it’s nothing more than an ordinary shirt. However, you would be far from correct. This shirt can stop bullets.
The Miguel Caballero Bulletproof Men’s Polo Shirt is considered “high-security fashion.” These polos have passed the NIJ’s standards for bullet-resistant body armor, so you know they mean business. The shirt is composed of three different layers. One is the cotton outer layer, which appears to be completely normal. Next to your skin is a microfiber that’s means to keep you the perfect temperature. But the layer in the middle is what does the dirty work. This layer is made up of a series of removable ultra-lightweight anti-ballistic panels. There are three different levels of protection that you can order, depending on just what you expect to run into. The starting price for one of these is just a hair under $3,500, but if you’re someone who needs this kind of protection, you can probably afford it.
