How long has this restriction been in effect ? And does it apply to some
certain flak-jacket type ?
I recall back in the late 80's when dad as an UN Filed Service Officer
hgad to commute between Tiberias Israel (home) to work in Metullah
S.Lebanon. He drove a hard top jeep forget what type but in anycase he
had furbished the vehicle with some 10 odd flak jackets . He didn't wear
any of them just had em hanging on the back. He said that as bullet
stoppers they sucked ( apparently he had tested them 'imself) but they
did minimize the amount of shrapnel flying about. I recall they were US
made flak jackets !
