As long as we’re covering interesting Aspetto products, we should perhaps also mention the ultra lo-pro/lo-vis (low-profile/low-visibility) bullet-resistant blazer/sport coat they make, which immediately made us think of James Bond. Aspetto CEO Rob Davis told DefenseReview (DR) that the Aspetto bullet-resistant blazer can be made with either NIJ Level II or Level IIIA (most popular) ballistic protection against 9mm Parabellum/9x19mm NATO-level ballistic threats.
In DR’s video below, Mr. Davis explains how the internal soft armor is supported inside the jacket. An Aspetto bullet-resistant blazer certainly isn’t inexpensive, but it’s worth every penny when your life’s on the line and taking fire from a pistol-armed assailant.
Aspetto will of course tailor the jacket to your exact physical measurements. It’s Defense Review’s understanding at present that this ia a fully-bespoke jacket.
Editor’s Note: The a number of the accompanying photos have been brightened to highlight the bullet holes in the jacket’s fabric (outside the ballistic armor), but this is a dark Navy Blue jacket.
