The A2 body armor is thin, low-profile, and low-weight, giving you maximum mobility without compromising stopping power. This curved armor is especially mobile at just 5.5 pounds and a thickness of .26”. Made with a custom steel alloy blend, this level 3 plus protection defeats all pistols and most rifles, including 5.56 M193 and M855 at speeds of up to 3,000 FPS. Guarantee yourself flexibility on the mission with next-level protection.
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 like 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, is a feature of AR500 Armor of the Armored Republic plates that protects both the user and the plate itself. It protects the user by helping either capture or deflect fragmentation (a bullet’s fragments after impact) and spalling (the armor’s fragments after impact). The Build-Up Coat is a thicker seal which does this better than the Base Coat, although both do it to a degree. The FragLock™ also protects the plate by sealing it from the elements, which could otherwise corrode the plate. With either version of the FragLock™ Coating, this plate has a shelf life of twenty years and requires no maintenance.
