NIJ IV level protection

The NIJ 101.06 standard level IV is the highest possible rating. It offers protection from virtually all rifle rounds, including AP bullets. The better protection from AP rounds is a trade-off, however: in addition to the increased weight, NIJ IV is not specified to protect from six hits, as NIJ III is.

If you are unfamiliar with the NIJ rating system check out this chart for further reference.
