    This bundle adds a modern innovation to a classic industry-defining plate.

    Armored Republic helped build the civilian market by removing the barrier of high costs with the 

    introduction of steel armor: A cost-effective rifle-rated plate that anyone could afford: $60 plates from our AR500 Armor® Heritage Plate (originally called Level III Body Armor) were unheard of before then, as was the solution to the often-discussed “fragmentation” problem, FragLock™ coating in base or Build-Up form.

    Our Heritage Plate is capable of protecting against several direct hits while still being less bulky than competing materials. It also has been independently tested in accordance with NIJ 0101.06 threat levels through Oregon Ballistics (OBL), and H.P. White Laboratories. This means it is rated to stop 7.62x51 M80 NATO Ball (.308 Winchester) at a velocity of up to 2,780 FPS, and special threat tested to stop 5.56mm M855/SS109 (Green Tip) at a velocity of 2,780 FPS.

    Armored Republic’s Frag Wrap is the newest Tool of Liberty meant to combat common concerns regarding bullet fragmentation post-impact. This wrap enhances safety by enveloping the top third of your steel plate with P-Aramid Kevlar, ensuring any fragmentation potentially in line with your neck or arms is contained. 

    Fragmentation is something we’ve solved before, and now we’ve solved it again- the Base Coat, Build-Up and Frag Wrap are all innovations we’re proud to offer so you can perfect your own armor setup.

    The Frag Wrap is made of Durastretch, a heavy-duty elastic material, with a p-aramid envelope in the upper 33% of it. Simply drop your steel plate in the wrap and put it back in your carrier. This design will mitigate any fragmentation from exiting a plate carrier in an upward trajectory that could otherwise be redirected toward your arms and neck.

    This wrap can be used on all 10” x 12” size steel plates up to ½” thickness, regardless of manufacture. The wrap will fit on flat, curved, Base Coat, or Build-Up Coat plates.
