In the Zombie Apocalypse keeping bullets our of your chest will be of the utmost importance. So why not invest in some body armor. Well Amazon has it and it even has free shipping!
Modern body armor is divided into two main categories: hard body armor and soft body armor.
Hard body armor, made out of thick ceramic or metal plates, functions basically the same way as the iron suits worn by medieval knights: It is hard enough that a bullet or other weapon is deflected. That is, the armor material pushes out on the bullet with the same force (or nearly the same force) with which the bullet pushes in, so the armor is not penetrated.
Typically, hard body armor offers more protection than soft body armor, but it is much more cumbersome. Police officers and military personnel may wear this sort of protection when there is high risk of attack, but for everyday use they generally wear soft body armor, flexible protection that you wear like an ordinary shirt or jacket.
