Im a civilian can i own / wear body armor? Of course you can in the European Union there are no regulations on body armor (and in most US states however there are some exceptions) engaging in illigal activities while having body armor equipped will greatly increase penalties.Will UHMWPE degrade faster due to'' extreme heat'. Well if you dont get 40 - 50 degrees celcius regurarly in your country your vest will be ok for years to come however if you live in a country that has a really warm climate im encouraging you to look for something else. Also the fact that it is unbranded does not mean that it will perform worse than a branded one. To further avoid traceability there is no size (2XL) or manufacturing date (28 / 12 / 2018) on the vest. Please do not engage in any illigal activities. Thank you very much for looking at my listing.
