KARACHI:

A bulletproof vest made from polyethylene worn under shirt can stop bullets fired from 9mm and 30 bore pistols, the manufacturer told The Express Tribune.

"We also offer tailor-made waistcoats with bulletproof fiber able to stop gunshots of small firearms," said BSF Associate CEO Yahya Bakhtiar Siddiqi.

Displaying his products at IDEAS 2022, Siddiqui told The Express Tribune that the bulletproof waistcoat worn over the shirt and vest worn inside are made from raw materials procured from the USA and China.

Both of these products are soft and comfortable and not heavy like normal bullet proof jackets, therefore very easy to use. He said that the cost of a bulletproof waistcoat or vest made from Chinese raw materials is Rs35,000 while the price of a vest made from American material is Rs60,000.
