Quality Control and Ergonomics
MADE IN THE U.S.A.
Our advanced single curve has 3 distinct curves. Where as our Patent Pending CQB multi-curve has 4.
The advanced single curve has 2 Radius curves that allow the plate to fit your torso, each traveling from the bottom center of the plate to the outer edges of the upper portion of the plate. This creates a plate that wraps your torso and having the upper portion flat across your chest, which is the exact shape of your chest/torso. This plate wears more comfortably and eliminates the digging of the upper portion of the plate into your chest when the plate is rocking side to side. It also protects you better than traditional single curves while maintaining the correct curvature protecting you from side shots to your torso.
Try a set and you will not be disappointed.

About our Armor:
What types of Armor Plate do we use?
AR500 Armor Plate is a high hardness (HH) steel used for High Impact and Abrasion Resistant (AR) applications. To be effective in armor applications to perform to NIJ Level 3 standards, this plate should be in the 505-530 range on the Brinnell Harness Scale. Level 3 is rated for M80 Ball at 2800 Feet per second, all AK variants and defeats Green Tip M855 as well at 50 feet out of a 16 inch barrel.
Plate Coating Options:
What we use: We utilize a Rhino Linings Industrial product that is recommended and developed specifically for anti-splatter (spalling) mitigation by Rhino Linings Military Research and Development. This is a premium coating that costs 30% more than standard truck bed liner coatings provided by others. The only other product on the market that is equal in properties is Line-X PAXCON.
Base Coat: Is a light coating of the ballistic steel to seal the armor from environmental elements. This coating provides no measurable splatter mitigating properties. Single or Double Base coats do not add splatter mitigating properties. They only make your armor heavier. You need at least ¼ inch to be effective.
Build-Up Coat: At a minimum of ¼ inch of coating is applied to the strike face of the plate to mitigate splatter. Not all coatings or processes of application are created equal. The armor steel substraight must go through a 5 step process of Blasting, Cleaning, Etching, Priming, and Curing to achieve the proper adhesion of coating. You can see substandard build-up coatings separating from the armor plate in many videos after a single round. Videos of our build-up coatings perform and do not separate. This superior coating method produces the greatest splatter mitigating properties.

We are fully insured for product liability and have a no “BS” manufacturer’s warranty. Your armor plates are warrantied for 10 years from the verifiable date of purchase against manufacturing defects. We are easy to work with if there are ever any issues needed addressing now or in the future.
