- Spectra fiber – after manipulation of this fiber, the resulting nonwoven fabric is strong and at the same time lightweight which is a good material for female body armor in which weight is one of the main problems of women soldiers. The weight could stop them from great movement maneuver. Excellent ballistic function is also a property of this fabric.
TWARON – Akzo Nobel developed this kind of material. This material significantly reduces the overall weight of the finished product thus making the body armor more comfortable. Stitching is no longer necessary, according to Akzo. This will make the product have a lighter weight without affecting much of its protection to the wearer.

No matter what the female body armor is made up of, what matters most is that it provides maximum protection and comfort to the wearer. Choosing the right kind of body armor is easy so as long as you understand the materials used and its advantages and disadvantages.
