~ In-game description

While the bright coloring makes this vest non-ideal for a stealthy approach, the Ballistic Vest is moderately preferable to the more common Field Vest in terms of protection; it is capable of absorbing a significantly harmful impact.

This comes in two slightly different shades: a lighter blue, and a darker blue with more grey accents.

While not offering as much protection as the Plate Carrier, it is easier to find and weighs substantially less, while also offering storage space and hotbar slots, making it a good substitute.
