Frequently Asked Questions About Bulletproof Clothing
WHY CHOOSE AN ARMOR PLATE CARRIER?
When it comes to safety in hostile situations, it’s comforting to know you can adjust your ballistics protection as needed. A tactical body armor carrier will provide you with flexibility for peace of mind.
Armor plate carriers’ versatility starts with their customizable qualities. You can fill your light plate carrier with more plates for full ballistics coverage or use minimal plates to prioritize mobility.
Armor Plate Carriers are also comfortable to wear. This vest weighs merely two pounds and features padded shoulder straps for comfort as you add more panels. The waist straps adjust for a snug fit.
WHAT ARE LEVEL IIIA PLATES?
This 10×12 Armor Plate Carrier comes with a set of NIJ Level IIIA inserts. These soft body plates protect against various close-range firearms and knives. The National Institue of Justice (NIJ) sets performance standards for body armor, with level IIIA being the highest for soft plates.
For body armor to qualify for IIIA under standard 0101.06, it must stop 9mm and .44 magnum rounds at velocities ranging from 1,430 fps to 1,500 fps and 1,400 fps to 1,460 fps, respectively. We perform additional testing for .45 cal, .40 cal and hollow-point ammunition.
HOW IS THIS BALLISTIC CARRIER VEST DIFFERENT FROM THE COMPETITION?
At Atomic Defense, we don’t settle, and neither should you. IIIA is the lowest level of body armor we offer, as we feel our customs deserve true protection. Each model undergoes extensive testing at our NIJ-certified range to ensure it meets and exceeds performance standards for its classification.
This carrier will increase your mobility and versatility. You can enjoy a light-low profile plate carrier with as much or as little ballistic protection as you deem necessary.
These vests are MOLLE-compatible, too, meaning they’re useful even without plates.
CAN I UPGRADE MY BALLISTIC PROTECTION?
You can choose the inserts that best fit the situation. This vest comes with IIIA plates, but you can upgrade to a III or IV plate to resist stronger rounds. Atomic Defense carries various bulletproof plates — browse our insert panels to fill your arsenal.
