Nothing is bullet proof! Anything can be penetrated by something if the speed of that something is going fast enough. It is important to refer to the NIJ standard when comparing levels of bullet resistance. Nutshellz™ “Level II” protective cups will stop a a level 2 NIJ threat from a center shot at the distance set in the standard. The cup is designed to swallow the round, not deflect it. This is very important because if a bullet slid off the cup, it would likely go into the thigh and hit the femeral artery causing a bleed out.

“Level III” and “Level IV” Nutshellz™ are coming soon..
