Type IIA Bulletproof Armor (5e Equipment)
From D&D Wiki
Type IIA Bulletproof Armor
Most bulletproof armor is made from ballistic paneling that chips away on impact, redirecting the force of a gunshot. Type IIA is designed for low velocity, small caliber weapons, such as relatively low-power pistols. This is low-end armor, usually reserved for the concerned civilian that either can't afford better armor or doesn't know the difference. Almost all forms of this armor can be hidden under clothing.
Usage notes are unresearched speculation designed to give perspective only. The DOJ standard is only used to distinguish between different levels of armor, and applies generalizations so it can be adapted for D&D. Please, don't take this stuff literally.
