Hopefully I got that right.

Nowadays, modern vests of various types can double as bulletproof vests by having armor plates inserted into it.

-->(After shooting Mac, knocking him on his back.) -->'''Ramathorn''': How do you feel? -->'''Mac''': Good enough...to fuck...your mother! ** DaChief shows up and assumes it's a trick being played on the rookie trooper, claims that he invented this gag, and that it involves the gun being loaded with blanks. (The only thing he's puzzled about is why Mac is the who's naked aside from the jockstrap, since in his day it would have been the rookie doing it as part of rookie hazing.) He then takes the gun they were using and fires it to the side to demonstrate that they're not real bullets, but winds up shooting out a window of one of the patrol cars and revealing that they really ''were'' using live ammo. --->'''Chief''': [obviously horrified] You're a sick motherfucker, Mac.

*** The popular SocietyForCreativeAnachronism song "I'll See Your Six" tells of Sir Trude, the first of the Lady Knights, who wore her SCA armor home through the streets of New York City. She was accosted by a mugger and his three cronies...whose switchblade failed to so much as faze her due to the heavy chain-mail she wore. All four were chased off when she responded by drawing and brandishing [[{{BFS}} a three foot broadsword]] at them that [[FailedASpotCheck they hadn't noticed her carrying earlier]]. MuggingTheMonster at its finest as well as an example of how chain-mail can at the very least reduce damage from blade slashes.

* One time on ''TheMentalist'' Rigsby didn't wear his vest while going to interview a suspect, while Van Pelt did. She got shot in the vest and went to the hospital with internal injuries.

* During the highway chase scene at the end of ''Film/Terminator2JudgmentDay'', Sarah, John, and the T-800 commandeer an armored SWAT truck while the T-1000 pursues in a helicopter. Sarah puts John into the back and piles him under a heap of bullet proof vests, then hangs several more from the back door to use as cover while trading fire with the T-1000. It works pretty well. At least until the T-1000 manages to walk his fire into Sarah's exposed leg.

* Parodied in WesternAnimation/RobotChicken, where in the spoof of ''Film/PoliceAcademy'' and ''Film/{{X-Men}}'' movies, one of the graduates shoots himself in the head after Xavier's introduction of the bulletproof uniforms. After which, Xavier says "Of course, they can only protect the parts of you that are covered."

* In SandyMitchell's TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}} Literature/CiaphasCain novel ''For The Emperor'', [[AntiMagic Gunner Ferik Jurgen]] proves that imperial guard armor is not as useless as some people say: His helmet allows him to survive ''a bolter[[note]]miniature rocket-propelled grenade[[/note]] shot to the head'', though it's made clear that a second shot would have [[YourHeadASplode killed]] him (the helmet is destroyed). Granted, it was stormtrooper Carapace armor, not standard-issue Flak armor.

* On ''Series/TheBridge'' Billy, a police officer, is wearing her vest when doing a routine traffic stop and gets shot with a shotgun to the chest at close range. She survives that but the pellets the vest did not stop did some serious damage and she is in critical condition in the hospital for the rest of the season.

* On ''Series/{{Narcos}}'', bulletproof vests are not very effective, spelling disaster for Colombian politics. One politician refuses a vest. [[spoiler: He gets gunned down.]] Another wears one, [[spoiler: but is shot just below the vest and bleeds to death minutes later. His successor agrees to wear bulletproof pants.]]
