Purposely designed to be used as a back plate in your plate carrier capable of accepting 10â x 12 body armor. AR500 ArmorÂ® Level III Back Plate body armor offers the same ballistic protection as our ASC line with the benefit of increased coverage. Utilizing a back plate affords you additional coverage from the back side of your plate carrier. Please note that your plate carrier must be compatible with a rectangular back plate cut. Please see the carrier compatibility list below. We do not recommend using a Back Plate in the front of your plate carrier unless youâre willing to forego comfort and ergonomics while shouldering your rifle.
