Yeah, but that was hit with rounds from a handgun.

Without a metal or ceramic plate rifle rounds will go through a vest like it's not even there!

Even with the plates only so many rifle rounds will be stopped. Which is why I was hyper critical of the scene* when Doc was saved by a vest that obviously took 20+ rounds. Even with a plate or flack jacket does he survive that.
