Description

Our Level III body armor offers the most protection for your buck, and covers the most common threats one could encounter, including nearly all Military & NATO calibers up to the threat level below:

  • Independently tested and rated to NIJ 0101.06 standards to defeat six (6) rounds of 7.62×51 M80 NATO Ball from 51’ at 2,780 feet per second.

For when ounces are pounds and mobility is everything, AR500 Armor® Level III Polyethylene Body Armor weighs in at a mere 3.3lb’s per plate (10”x12”).

The result is an evolved form of steel body armor and is currently the lightest and highest rated ballistic steel core body armor on the market.
