    This kit is one of the first to feature the next generation of armor carriers, the Testudo Gen 3. It closely resembles our supremely popular Testudo Gen 2, but with an upgrade: the Quick-Detach Buckle System.

    A cummerbund is great for its precise adjustability; pull it tight to fit you exactly. The downside is that it takes a bit longer to take it off. The QDS fixes that. Pull a cord away from you and the carrier will open on that side for quick removal.

    The brand-new P3 takes buoyant, lightweight armor a step further. Under three pounds. Stops M80 Full Metal Jacket bullets. Floats in water.

    The C3 is made to handle the warzone. Places where the ability to stop threats like .30 caliber armor-piercing bullets is a must. 

    The A2 plate design takes advantage of Steel’s edge-to-edge protection to make a cut that protects your vitals while trimming as much weight as possible: Multi-hit capable, edge-to-edge coverage, Level III+ tested, and lighter than even many ceramic plates at 5.5 pounds.
