Level III+ Lightweight Body Armor
AR500 Armor® Lightweight Level III+ Body Armor is the pinnacle of evolution in steel body armor; the result of breaking down barriers through innovation and dedication while striving to provide the ultimate ballistic steel core body armor. Currently the lightest level III steel core body armor on the market, we manage to retain the rugged and reliable performance our body armor is known for! AR500 Armor® body armor is both Stand-Alone and Multi-Hit capable and designed to defeat the most common rifle threats in existence (5.56x45 M193 and 5.56x45 M855 SS109 at a velocity of up to 3,000 feet per second (fps), and 7.62x39, 7.62x51 M80 NATO Ball (.308 Winchester) at velocities up to 2,850 fps. It is not rated for AP rounds.
Genetically similar to our standard level III+ ballistic core, we’ve taken our re-engineered formula which yields a 30% increase in strength, and made it thinner and lighter. The result is an evolved form of steel body armor; currently the lightest weight and highest rated ballistic steel core body armor available.
