We shoot a lot of vests in classes, and sometimes out of curiosity. Iíve shot vests older than yours, and they still work fine. The expiration dates essentially stem from two factors: NIJ cert 0101.06, and lawyers. Assuming the vest is made of Kevlar (or similar) and has been treated normally over its lifetime, itís fine and will still work. It might smell bad, but thatís a different story. If your company wants to give you a new one, even better, but itís just chasing liability. The vest will still perform.
