Bulletproof Vests for Kids? Designer Say Effective and Fashionable - Dec 31st, 2012 - Health

Would you want your child to wear something that can stop a bullet but still look like a backpack? A designer in Columbia has come up with just such an option.

The Daily Mail is reporting that an expert in bulletproof vests has come up with several articles that the average child can wear without drawing any more attention.

The maker already produces vests for national and international clients, mostly heads of state and other spotlight figures. He says the vests, which go for about 500 dollars, can withstand a handgun round at close range. However, they are not designed to stop bullets fired by high-caliber weapons like the ones used in the shooting in Connecticut.
