Assault Vest's bonus shield effect will activate around 7 to 8 seconds after leaving combat. Also, when the shield is activated, it will not wear off until it is broken by an opponent's special attack.
Note that the bonus shield can only prevent the damage from an opponent's Special Attack. It does not prevent you from taking damage from any Standard Attack.

Even if you return to base, the bonus shield will not recover the damage it sustained. So, if you want to return the shield to its maximum strength again, you have to let your opponent's Special Attack destroy it, then get out from combat and reactivate Assualt Vest.
The shield from Assault Vest can stack on top of shields from moves like Cotton Guard, and other held items like Score Shield. It even works with the shield you get from your own goal zones. This means that you can double or even triple your shield, making you incredibly hard to take down.
|This item is currently not recommended for any Pokemon.|
Since Assault Vest's effect activates after combat, we conducted a mock battle to confirm how many seconds the shield will come out from the moment you defeat the opponent.
Looking at the test above, the battle ended around the 8:15 mark in the battle time. The bonus shields appears at 8:08, about 7 to 8 seconds after combat.
The purpose of this test was to determine if the Sp. Atk. Shield from Assault Vest stacks with other sources of shields, whether it is Sp. Atk. or another type. The test took note of 3 instances of shields for each source of shield: (1) the shield generated from Assault Vest only, (2) the shield generated from the other source only, and (3) the shield generated from both Assault Vest and the other source.
|Assault Vest Only|
|Score Shield Only|
|Assault Vest with Score Shield|
As a result of the tests, although hard to see in the images, it is confirmed that the Sp. Atk. Shield from Assault Vest stacks with other sources of shields. With this in mind, it is possible to be shielded from various sources of damage, which is useful for Pokemon who like to dive into fights.
