Currently the lightest weight Level III+ Ballistic Steel Core Body Armor in the word!

AR500 Armor® Lightweight Level III+ Body Armor is the pinnacle of evolution in steel body armor; the result of breaking down barriers through innovation and dedication to providing the ultimate ballistic steel core body armor. Genetically similar to our standard level III+ ballistic core, we’ve taken our re-engineered formula which yields a 30% increase in strength, and made it thinner and lighter. The result is an evolved form of steel body armor, and an industry first ballistic steel core chest plate weighing in at just over 5lb, in our 10” x 12” Advanced Lightweight Shooters Cut (ALSC).

Not only is our Lightweight Level III+ body armor the lightest steel body armor on the market, it’s also the thinnest measuring in with a core thickness of only .21”. The ultra-thin profile improves comfort when shouldering a rifle and reduces overall bulk of your gear. Our Advanced Lightweight Shooters Cut (ALSC) provides protection of your vitals with strategic material reduction in locations to mitigate bulk, reduce weight, and improve ergonomics and function. Our ALSC is slightly undersized on the horizontal axis to ensure compatibility with all plate carriers.

Rugged and reliable, our Lightweight level III+ body armor retains many of the benefits AR500 Armor® Body Armor is known for. Including stress fracture resistance, multi-hit performance, and the longest shelf life in the industry. Multi-Hit capabilities are reduced in comparison to our Level III, and standard Level III+ body armor, in addition to a slight increase in back face deformation on impact due to the thinner profile of our lightweight ballistic core. Although performance still exceeds alternative armor solutions such as Ceramic/Composite, Dyneema, and UHMWPE body armor by a significant margin at a fraction of the cost!

AR500 Armor® level III+ lightweight body armor is capable of defeating 5.56x45 M193, 5.56x45 M855/SS109, 7.62x39 (AK), and 7.62x51 M80 Ball (.308 Winchester) rounds. Independent and in-house testing has shown our armor well exceeds standard level III threats; our philosophy has always been to over deliver! Coated with industry leading PAXCON (a division of Line-X) spall and fragmentation protective coating.

Threat Rating: Level III+/Special Threat Tested AR500 Armor® body armor is Stand-Alone and Multi-Hit capable. Designed to defeat the most common rifle threats in existence. 5.56x45 M193 and 5.56x45 M855 SS109 at a velocity of up to 3,000 feet per second, and 7.62x39, 7.62x51 M80 NATO Ball (.308 Winchester) at velocities up to 2,850 feet per second.
