Ballistic and Knife Resistant Body Armour Vest FAQs

Q:

A:

Why don’t you use the terms: Bullet proof or Knife proof ?

Jack Ellis prefers the terminology Bullet Resistant and Knife Resistant because it is more honest and accurate. Bullet proof and Knife proof suggests that the ballistic vest or knife vest will defeat every knife or bullet. In truth, no body armour can defeat every threat and such products are always built to a particular specification. For more information please see our Armour Standards page.

Q:

A:

Do you export your products?

Yes, Jack Ellis exports ballistic vests, knife resistant vests, armour plates and ballistic helmets to a variety of countries. In order to export these goods we must comply with UK export control regulations. This may require an export licence.

Q:

A:

Do you manufacture body armour, or are you a reseller?

We are a manufacturer. We make our ballistic and knife vest products within our factory in Kirriemuir, Scotland.

Q:

A:

Do you manufacture female-specific vests?

Yes, we manufacture armour specifically for women. That means we make it to female sizes and shapes. Most of our armour systems are available with bust cups.
