SAPI Cut Rifle Plates

Lightweight Level III PLUS

A Ceramic / Polyethylene construction brings this plate down to a very light weight - while still stopping the 5.56 mm Green Tip semi-AP threats that Level III pure Polyethylene plates are not rated to stop.

Tested to the NIJ 0101.05 standard - if you need the extra bump padding of the 06 Standard to withstand impact abuse, get the more expensive Ultra-light Level III PLUS - or add a Strike Face Impact Pad for $ 20 per plate. But, if you are not going down hard on your chest, this is a very lightweight plate at a very reasonable price...

Important Safety Note

(A safety warning most Polyethylene vendors neglect to mention...)

You should know that the ballistic performance of all Polyethylene may be adversely affected, or permanently reduced, by prolonged exposure to ambient temperatures below ~ MINUS 15°F ( - 26 °Celsius) and over 150 °F (65 ° Celsius).

Polyethylene plates must never be exposed to open flame, excessive direct sunlight, UV exposure or any hot surface. Heat damage to the external surface (e.g., melting) is a visual clue that the plate may have been exposed to elevated temperatures. If damage is found, replace the plate.

So, don't take any chances by leaving your Rifle Plates in extremely cold or hot environments, OR letting them "cook" in the sun, for example:

  • a closed vehicle super-heating in the sun
  • an engine compartment
  • unprotected on asphalt in intense sun
  • unprotected on top of metal baking in the sun, etc., etc.

If it's too hot for your body, DON'T LEAVE YOUR RIFLE PLATES THERE!
