Frequently Asked Questions
How Is This Carrier Vest Different From The Competition?
The 11×14 Armor Plate Carrier is one of the most versatile types of ballistics armor. As a MOLLE-compatible system, this vest has utility beyond stopping bullets. Small pockets are ideal for holding other useful equipment. The carrier also enables flexible protection. You can add or remove plates as you see fit to bolster security or expand mobility. While this package comes with IIIA plates, the vest can hold any Level III or IV plate we carry.
In addition to utility, the 11×14 Armor Plate Carrier is also comfortable to wear. The carrier itself is only two pounds, but adding plates and other equipment increases the weight. Padded shoulder straps keep the carrier comfortable even as you add weight. This package also
How Protective Is Level IIIA Armor?
Under NIJ standard 0101.06, armor must stop bullets within its category from penetrating deeper than 44 mm. Level IIIA describes soft body armor capable of stopping 9 mm and .44 Magnum handgun rounds. We test our IIIA plates against ammunition types and quantities that exceed the requirements for each level to ensure some of the most reliable protection on the market.
Can I Upgrade My Ballistic Plates?
You can upgrade your protection with plates that withstand more powerful rounds. We carry hard body insert panels that fit the 11×4 Armor Plate Carrier as well as the IIIA models, including:
- Level III: Stops round up to 5.56 and 7.62 M80 from rifles like the AR-15 or AK-47.
- Level IV: Stops armor-piercing and API rounds.
What Sizes Are Available?
At Atomic Defense, we offer two sizes for carriers and plates. While both the 11×14 Armor Plate Carrier and 10×12 Armor Plate Carrier adjust from 26 to 50-inch waists, each accommodates different plate sizes. This concealable plate carrier is compatible with 11-inch by 14-inch plates — the largest size in our inventory. Choose the 11×14 Armor Plate Carrier to cover the greatest surface area.
Excellent product my army airborne birth brother in law was impressed at price and style! He recommended the purchase…!
This was the cheapest option for IIIA protection. Fits fine, it’s not as light or as concealable as soft body armor, but of course it’s not supposed to be. I assume it stops bullets but I hope not to find out!
