The Ballistic Plate comes in one size
The Ballistic Plate fits securely in the pocket of all of our plate carrier vests. It is 11 7/8 inches tall, 10 inches across, and 0.80 inches in depth. It is curved to fit close to your body, and features a nylon cover that protects it from the sun and typical wear and tear.
It is level IV stand alone but best worn in conjunction with soft body armor. It weighs only 5.65 lbs, and is made from a ceramic material that contains alumina and High Strength Polyethylene. This plate is significantly lighter than a steel plate while comparable in price. Our Ballistic Plate is a great value.
How many Ballistic Plates should I buy?
It depends on how much protection you desire. SWAT teams and those who expect to be shot at from the front wear one ballistic plate in the chest pocket. Those who are in war zones wear two ballistic plates: one in the front pocket, and one in back. Analyze your unique situation to decide on how many plates you will need.
What is the protection level of this plate when used alone?
Our plate provides NIJ level IV protection when used alone, such as in a plate carrier. Capable of stopping even heavy rounds.
