For the Kevlar vest in Wasteland 2, see Kevlar vest (Wasteland 2).

A Kevlar vest is usually made of sheets of Dupont Kevlar held together inside of a nylon covering. In real life, Kevlar is effective against bullets only, and not designed to stop attacks from Knives, Chainsaws, and Proton axes.


In Wasteland, Kevlar vests are a big step up from a Bulletproof shirt (one wonders what the shirt was made of) and just slightly less tough than a Rad suit.

Kevlar vests will allow a character to resist a severe blasting from thugs armed with SMGs, but start to become obsolete when the party moves to Las Vegas.
