If you are going some place you need one stay home. They don't last forever and are not legal in every state. Hot heavy and bullet proof brief case might do just as well.

What do you want it do do?

More protection=less concealment.

I've seen that done before. Marty went back in time to the old West and Mad Dog Tannen (he hates to be called that) shot him but he was wearing a pot belly stove door around his neck and the bullets didn't hurt him. Saw it with my own two eyes.

It would be interesting to test one of those panels to see what they will and won't stop.
For example..
357 Sig 115 grain at 1550
357 magnum 125 grain at 1700
454 Casull 240 grain at 2000 or a full house 360 grain hardcast
