    $139.00

    Our stand alone and multi-hit capable Level IIIA body armor family just got bigger with the introduction of our Slim soft body armor. As with our Rimelig and Hybrid offerings, our 100% aramid Slim armor is designed to defeat pistol caliber threats up to .44 magnum and .357 SIG at 1,430 feet per second or lower, as well as lesser pistol calibers. 

    Flexible, affordable handgun protection

    Our Slim armor is made of 100% aramid construction, and sits solidly between our Rimelig and Hybrid offerings. The soft armor panel is made from two separate aramid laminates working together to create an armor panel greater than the sum of its parts. 

    The symmetrical design of our Slim armor gives it a bidirectional capability, meaning it's perfect for use in a backpack, where you might use it on your back, or in front of you as a shield.*** 

    Slim armor offers 100% aramid protection in a panel that is only 0.36" thick and weighs only 1.25 pounds (10"x12" ASC model). Our Slim armor is designed, cut, sewn, and assembled right here in the USA, and has a limited 5-year shelf life.

    Highlights:

    • Thin: Level IIIA Slim is 0.36” thick (35% thinner than our Rimelig Level IIIA aramid panel)
    • Foolproof Installation: Symmetrical design gives it bidirectional capabilities***
    • Comfortable: Flexible materials for all-day comfort
    • Capable: Level IIIA rated for pistol calibers up to .357 SIG and .44 Magnum* | Level II rated for 9mm and .357 Magnum**
    • Convenient: Patented Advanced Shooters Cut for maximum comfort and mobility
    • Durable: Laminated ripstop nylon covers with sonic-welded seams for durability and strength
    • Flexible: Compatible with nearly all plate carriers capable of accepting 10’x12” or 11”x14” rifle plates, and compatible with our line of trauma pads
