Correct Product Use and Advisory Warnings

Warning: do not use your ballistic insert if it (a) Has been struck by a bullet, projectile, or otherwise, Hit or dropped, stabbed, or (b) is chipped, cracked, Delaminated or separated, or (c) shows any other Physical change. Any of the foregoing may either cause The ballistic insert to be ineffective or indicate that it has Become ineffective, exposing the user to increased risk Of serious injury or death.

Warning: the ballistic insert provides no protection To areas of the body the insert does not cover. Strenuous Movements or physical altercations may cause ballistic Inserts to shift on the user’s body, thus affecting coverage. Warning: the ballistic insert does not provide

Protection against bursting munition threats such as ied’s, Mines, hand grenades or mortar fire unless stated on the Product technical sheet.

Warning: exposure to gunfire is intrinsically Hazardous. The ballistic insert will not provide protection From all threats potentially faced. The insert is intended as A last resort measure to reduce risk after all other actions And methods to preserve personal safety have failed.

Warning: do not remove or obscure the ballistic Insert’s affixed product label. It provides the model Number, serial number, warranty period, threat types, And other important information specific to the insert Including the issue date when it was first placed into Service. The absence of the product label could cause Increased risk of serious injury or death.

Warning: choose only the appropriate model, type And size of ballistic insert. It is important to understand The type of threats faced, and to determine in advance if The insert is designed and tested against these types of Threats and is the correct size for use.

Warning: the ballistic insert is designed to lessen The risk of injury or death from those threats indicated On the affixed product label and as described in nij Standard—0101.06 or other specification as described on The product technical sheet. User should read and fully Understand that standard’s various threat levels, and the Limitations on the protection afforded by each.

Warning: even for those threats included within the Ballistic insert’s specified nij threat level, the insert is only Ballistic resistant, not “bullet proof”. Although agilite Ballistic insert designs are tested to a combination of nij And agilite ballistic resistance protocols; this does not Assure the insert can defeat all types of threats in all types Of conditions and environments.

Warning: the ballistic insert provides only limited Protection. In the event an insert stops a threat, the Wearer may still sustain some degree of injury such as Severe bruising, broken bones, bleeding, internal injury, Or even death. In addition, at some angles projectiles can Ricochet or deflect off of the ballistic insert causing serious Injury or death to the wearer or bystanders.

Warning: the ballistic insert is designed for both Frontal and oblique impacts, but the greater the angle At which a projectile impacts the insert’s strike face, the Greater the possibility that the projectile may penetrate or Slide off the insert resulting in serious injury or death.

Warning: the possibility that a projectile may Penetrate the ballistic insert increases with multiple Impacts and their closer proximity on the insert face. While Not a common occurrence, this may result in serious Injury or death.

Warning: should the ballistic insert be struck by a Projectile close to the insert’s edge, the insert’s ability To dissipate the projectile’s energy may be adversely Impacted.

Warning: unless otherwise stated on the label, the Ballistic insert is not designed for stab resistance and Therefore does not protect against impacts from sharp edged Or pointed objects. Warning: always make certain the ballistic insert is Positioned so that its “strike face” side is oriented toward The threat. Inserting the ballistic insert improperly will Render it ineffective and expose the user to increased risk Of serious injury or death.

Warning: the ballistic insert...Along with any Associated body armor vest, carrier or jacket...Must fit Properly. Wear only the correct size and use only those Vests, carriers or jackets where the manufacturer has Provided for ballistic insert usage. Inserting a ballistic Insert into undersized or oversized carrier pockets may Lead to misalignment of the insert exposing the user’s vital Organs to the threat.

Warning: do not intentionally get shot with any Bullet or other projectile while wearing the ballistic insert. Intentional contact with a bullet or other Projectile always carries the risk of serious Injury or death.
