Uh, it's a Kevlar flak jacket, not a "bulletproof vest"

Care to elaborate?

The PASGT vest was able to stop 9x19mm in real life, as well as fragments from grenades/artillery, so some armour value seems appropriate.

I have found that it is perfectly capable of stopping 1-2 pistol rounds. Have either of you actually tested it?

I'm not commenting on the current in game values, I don't know what they are, I just wanted to give the real life info.

In additional to default kevlar PASGT also has optional inserts so it should have at least some armor value, if not for anything else than to make it different from the PASGT light harness.
