Complete The Look
The AR500 P3 Level III Armor Plate is made of superlight polyethylene so you can run without becoming weary and swim without tiring.

Tested independently to the NIJ Level III benchmark, the P3 plate stops 7.62x51 M80 Ball rounds at 2780 FPS.

Polyethylene stops threats by "capturing" the bullet in its material - the heat of the bullet partially softens the front of the polyethylene, allowing the bullet into the material, where it then is stopped by the remaining fibers within the plate. As the bullet slows down, the polyethylene then rehardens. Because of its unique way of stopping bullets, polyethylene is able to take multiple hits without shattering.

Only PE hard armor can provide rifle-rated protection at under three pounds. It also floats in water & features a hydrophobic wrap.
