"Costume Use Only"
The "Rába" flak jacket has been issued to the Hungarian Defense Forces since the '90s, first seeing action during the NATO led SFOR and KFOR missions during the Yugoslav Wars. Designed in response to the changing face of warfare, this line of armor's seen continual improvements to support Hungary's peacekeeping operations at home and abroad. These days they're mostly reserved for training exercises and police use, but we were excited to get our hands on the 2002M model, which entered service in 2002 and was phased out just over a decade ago.
Featuring nylon construction, with built-in torso, shoulder, and neck kevlar inserts, these vests also include an interior clip belt and adjustable velcro straps to ensure a snug, comfortable fit. They're surprisingly thin too, so you could wear one underneath a suitably large winter coat.
Manufactured to meet Level IIIA NIJ standard by the Hungarian government, they held up to 9mm rounds in tests we conducted, and should defend against everything up to .44 magnum rounds. Also included are front and back pouches for ceramic plates for when you want to add another layer of protection. Naturally, these vests are for "costume" use only.
These vests are a limited-time offering. We aren't expecting to get more in, so grab one while you can!
These flak jackets come in three sizes: Large, XL, and XXL, and is available in two colors: Olive Drab and M1990 Woodland
