Even though the new Appalachian Training SAPI Patch is shaped like a SAPI plate, it doesn’t provide any ballistic protection… unless you stack a few hundred of them on top of each other. Then I guess they might slow down a bullet. Maybe.
Seriously, it’s just a patch. Don’t do anything stupid with it. It won’t stop bullets but it will look pretty darn cool on your plate carrier.
