Description

AR500 Armor® Hybrid 10" x 12" Patented ASC IIIA Soft Body Armor

AR500 Armor® Hybrid IIIA Soft Body Armor utilizes the latest in ultra-light, thin, high strength, and flexible materials to create a 1lb armor system ranking amongst the lightest and best performing soft body armor in the industry. Constructed from Honeywell Spectra Shield®, Gold Shield®, and DuPont™ Kevlar®, we've harnessed the full ballistic capabilities of these materials maximizing synergy between components creating the ultimate Hybrid IIIA soft body armor panel.

When designing our Hybrid IIIA soft body armor we refused to sacrifice performance, comfort, or affordability. Our focus was to bridge the gap between performance and price point - no sacrifice on either end was acceptable. Our Hybrid soft body armor delivers and includes features only found in more expensive body armor. Our strategically placed low stich patterns on each sub-shoot pack improve performance without forfeiting flexibility and comfort. These unique patterns also aid in performance against back face deformation and edge shots. Our durable laminated antimicrobial Ripstop nylon cover improves longevity and lifespan of the armor by offering superior protection from the elements such as moisture and sweat, and is sonic welded for strength.

The end result is high performance light weight and  flexible body armor that can be worn comfortably all day, every day, offered at the right price!

AR500 Armor® Hybrid IIIA soft body armor in our 10" x 12" patented Advanced Shooters Cut is compatible with nearly all plate carriers on the market that accept 10" x 12" hard or soft body armor.

Construction: Honeywell Spectra Shield®, Gold Shield®, DuPont™ Kevlar®, and Laminated Ripstop Nylon (sonic welded)

Size & Cut: 10" x 12" Patented Advanced Shooters Cut (ASC), can be worn in conjunction with hard body armor plates

When researching soft body armor it's important to understand the differences in material and construction techniques. 100% Aramid, Kevlar, or single component constructed panels, for example, are often cost effective, but will be heavier, less flexible, and thicker. They also may not include many performance enhancing features such as sub-shoot pack reinforcement stitching or high quality nylon and seals which typically results in loss of performance, durability, and longevity of the armor.

Great quality, fit and perfect in my Warrior Assault Systems concealable vest. Paired with 5x8 trauma pads. Comfortable while sitting in car or standing. Additionally, light enough for carrying in backpack or mid size duffle when traveling. Will order another set for my second 'WAS' vest. (Posted on 10/6/2018)

My order arrived ahead of the estimated 6-weeks. I like the look and feel of these soft armor inserts. I am inserting them behind my Level III and IV plates in my various carriers to act as trauma pads and in theory increase the ballistic protection of my armor system. (Posted on 8/11/2016)

I bought these front and back panels along with side panels to go into Operator II Plate Carrier w/ Armor & Pouches (which is also an excellent product) what I previously bought with the AR500 Armor steel plates. The hybrid panels are great protection at the range and I wear during training classes for added protection. They're very light and shipping was much faster than anticipated as I received them lass a month after ordering them. (Posted on 8/4/2016)

Really wonderful stuff. Way better then the 24 lb hard armor I have. But basically only good for hand gun protection. Only complaint was it took 6 months to receive my order!!! (Posted on 7/7/2016)

I think it's great that this product is handmade right here in USA. Went with this Hybrid lllA for the back of my sentry carrier along with a trauma pad. Great comfort while seating, also very light weight. Can't compare it since its my first Armor set up with the front I went with a competitor's light weight option and a trauma pad. Great armor better get some, worth the wait forsure. (Posted on 7/30/2015)

YOU GET WHAT YOU SEE IN THE PICTURES, LIGHTWEIGHT, ITS NOT SO WIDE, YOU CAN USE IT WITH THE TRAUMA PADS IN A GOOD CONCEALED PLATE CARRIER AND ITS HARD TO SEE THE DIFFERENCE.... THIS PANELS ARE BETTER TO WEAR THAN THE HARD STP PANELS... (Posted on 2/23/2015)
