Lightweight Level III+

A Ceramic / Polyethylene construction brings this plate down to a light ~ 5.9 lbs. - while still stopping the 5.56 mm Green Tip threats that many Level III plates are not rated to stop.

Plus it passes the brutal drop test to be NIJ 0101.06 Certified. We even add cushioning on the edges not required by the test. This plate is designed to withstand abuse in a war zone.

  • Thickness 1.1" / 26 mm

  • Single Curve

  • These are actual plate specifications from plates in stock, not estimated weights.

Important Safety Note

(A safety warning most Polyethylene vendors neglect to mention...)

You should know that the ballistic performance of all Polyethylene may be adversely affected, or permanently reduced, by prolonged exposure to ambient temperatures below ~ MINUS 15°F ( - 26 °Celsius) and over 150 °F (65 ° Celsius).

Polyethylene plates must never be exposed to open flame, excessive direct sunlight, UV exposure or any hot surface. Heat damage to the external surface (e.g., melting) is a visual clue that the plate may have been exposed to elevated temperatures. If damage is found, replace the plate.

So, don't take any chances by leaving your Rifle Plates in extremely cold or hot environments, OR letting them "cook" in the sun, for example:

  • a closed vehicle super-heating in the sun
  • an engine compartment
  • unprotected on asphalt in intense sun
  • unprotected on top of metal baking in the sun, etc., etc.

If it's too hot for your body, DON'T LEAVE YOUR RIFLE PLATES THERE!
