Whether you’re looking for something comfortable for long hours on duty, or something able to keep up with fast-paced action on the field, the A2 body armor has you covered.
Tested to go above and beyond NIJ Level 3 standards, the curved, shooters cut A2 plate is Level III+ rated to defeat all pistols and most rifle ammunition, including 5.56x45 M193, 5.56x45 M855/SS109 at 3,000 FPS as well as AK-47 rounds (7.62x39) and .308 (7.62x51 M80 NATO Ball) at 2,850 FPS. Also, thanks to the custom steel alloy blend, it is able to protect against several hits without shattering or breaking as ceramic or polyethylene would. It also provides the same protection on the edges as it does in the center, giving you true edge-to-edge coverage.

The FragLock™ Coating, available in both Base Coat and Build-Up Coat versions, is a feature of the AR500 Armor of the Armored Republic plates that protects both the user and the plate itself. The Build-Up Coat protects the user by helping capture fragmentation (a bullet’s broken apart pieces after impact). The Base Coat seals the plate from sweat and other contaminants that would compromise the steel core. With either the Build-Up or Base Coat of FragLock™, this plate has a shelf-life of twenty years and requires no maintenance.
