The page states that the vest offers "...protection from small caliber firearms, and significant protection from zombie attacks and melee weapons." Is there a source or reference for this?

- It was said in a few videos from rocket that they offer protection, but there are no sources with values and/or tests or something like that. --LittleHelper321 (talk) 16:21, 9 February 2014 (UTC)
The ballistics helmet offers a protection value of 1.5, which blocks up to 5.56x45mm. The Press Vest has a value of 2.0 and blocks up to 7.62x51mm. This info came from unrecorded tests, unfortunately, but it's obviously true if you interpolate the stats on the helmet. It actually does not block melee damage, but it does prevent bleeding.
