Description / Abstract:

The document provides measurement guidance to assist in fitting ballistic-resistant body armor and stab-resistant body armor covering the torso. Proper measurement is necessary to obtain sufficient coverage of the torso and vital organs while allowing the range of motion required for officer operations.

This document addresses measurements for concealable (normal duty) and tactical (special duty) armor for both male and female wearers.

This standard does not address area of coverage (that is, how much of the torso is covered by the vest).

The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.

This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. Some specific hazards statements are given in Section 7 on Hazards.
