    For situations where you’re likely to be exposed on multiple sides, the Soft Side Panel provides protection against most threats you’re likely to face. Sized 6”x8”, Soft Side Panel is an IIIA Panel tested to stop .44 Magnum rounds and all lesser threats. It is sized to fit most side plate pockets and MOLLE pouches on the market.

    Our standard p-Aramid Rimelig offers an economic lightweight option, with a weight of 0.7 lbs and thickness of 0.5".

    For even thinner and lighter armor with the same protection, consider upgrading to the Hybrid model, which uses advanced materials for even thinner and lighter panels. Our Hybrid version maximized the benefits of high-tech materials such as Gold Shield® and SpectraShield®, resulting in a light and ultra-thin panel at 0.45 lbs and 0.31" thick.

    *If you're using a Valkyrie or Invictus plate carrier you will need to also purchase side plate pouches.
