I doubt that most circumstances would result in a person just getting up, probably have been, but I don't think Doc Brown would have been as alright as he was, if this was real life.

(Actually he took a burts at something like 5 meters, I wonder if any vest would stop all those rounds.).
I believe that the plates that US troops wear are rated for 3 hits.
