The Kevlar Vest first appeared in POSTAL, and can be found at the start of the game behind Postal Dude's house, along with a Shotgun and some ammo. When a Kevlar Vest is picked up, it gives 10 armor points.
The Kevlar Vest is the first type of body armour available in POSTAL 2 and its expansions. It is worn by SWAT officers, elite Terrorists, security officers and Survivalists but can also be found more commonly in various places throughout the town. A Kevlar Vest gives the player 100 armor points. The way it works is the armor takes most of the damage done to the player (About 80 or 90 percent), and the rest is taken directly.
- In multiplayer, the Kevlar Vest will change texture depending on how much damaged it is.
