The AR500 Armor Level III Abdominal Armor 9.5" x 6" was developed due to the increasing demand for abdominal protection. This modular auxiliary armor system was created so that it could integrate with your existing plate carrier and body armor. Built with a unique blend of flexibility, modularity, and protection from rifles or pistols dependent upon the body armor insert you choose. AR500 Armor ABS attaches via a unique pouch design, integrating into your plate carrier's cummerbund flap or inner plate pocket. It is then secured via Velcro, or option modular attachment straps, ABS provides a natural fit with your existing body armor resulting in a user adjustable extension of your body armor.
The pouch is adjustable to ensure appropriate placement and creating an intuitive and natural pivot point with AR500 Armor Level III hard or IIIA soft ABS body armor inserts installed. This pivot point is designed to enable the ABS to flex independently of the plate carrier, allowing for unhindered articulation while moving, kneeling, and changing positions.
Constructed from durable 1000D Cordura Nylon, the Abdominal Ballistic System is compatible with both ABS body armor and trauma pad. Equipped with PALS webbing, your load bearing capability on the front of the pouch is increased for additional gear.
