Escape from Tarkov Wiki

Armor vests are worn to reduce damage from gunfire. Most models can be fitted with different armor plates. They are often complemented with Helmets.

To learn more about the effectiveness of body armor check the Ballistics page.

Escape from Tarkov classes body armor under the Russian armor system, GOST, instead of the American NIJ system. (See trivia section for more info)
