    Looks pretty effective , but I am a cynic at heart.

    Why would I go to Vermont to get a coat?

    Actually compared to "bullet-proof" jackets already out there it's not bad.. probably about half. I'd worry about the gap where the zipper is, and obviously even with soft body armor you're going to be hurtin' but hopefully alive.

    I'm not that concerned about getting shot. That's a lot of guns and ammo.

    Ballistic vest is hot enough. Now they make it long sleeved and put on insulation. Won't wear indoors, or summertime at all. And like MikeCNY said entire centerline of chest (zipper) is not covered. If you unzip it then not covered reliably except for back.

    I'd rather be bruised and have broken ribs than the alternative ventilation.

    You could hire somebody to catch bullets for half that and have designated driver.

    The price is more than reasonable for rated armor.
