    Our AR500 Armor Level III+ body armor is designed to exceed the NIJ0101.06 Level III standard, stopping rounds with a velocity of up to 3,100 FPS, and also comes with our patented Advanced Shooters Cut (ASC).

    When you want just a little more protection

    Our Level III+ armor is manufactured from AR650 steel and, with a 20-year maintenance-free shelf life due our proprietary FragLock™ coating, will outlast ceramic and UHMWPE body armor.

    Available in right and left handed configurations, our patented ASC affords you additional room for your rifle stock, improving comfort and shooting ergonomics. Compatible with all standard plate carriers that accept SAPI or traditional Shooters Cut body armor with appropriate chest plate pocket size.

    Side protection for when it counts

    Specifically designed to increase coverage on the peripherals of your plate carrier. AR500 Armor® Side Armor Plates offer rifle rated protection on the side of your plate carrier. Compatible with most plate carriers that include cummerbund mounted side plate pouches. Level III+ is rated for 5.56mm M193 ammo at 3,100 fps.

    Side plates are most applicable when increased armor coverage is desired from an entry or defensive standpoint. Non-squared off shooting positions, traveling in vehicles, and situations where fragmentation is a realistic threat are scenarios where heavily running side body armor makes sense.

    Package includes:

    • 2 - AR500 Armor® Level III+ 10" x 12" armor plates, curved, base coat
    • 2 - AR500 Armor® Level III+ 6" x 8" side plates, curved, base coat
