Level III 6x6" side plates (set of 2)

When the SHTF, this is the armor you want to be wearing.  Durable, and capable of stopping all common North American rifle, shotgun, and pistol rounds.  Plus, we've tested our armor with semi-armor piercing ammunition, and it barely dented it!  Complies with MIL-46100 Rev E. for class 1 armor and passed the test against a 30 Caliber Armor Piercing bullet at 2426 fps as tested at the US Army Aberdeen Test Center.

Stops:  5.56, .223, 7.62x39, 308 Winchester, .357 mag, .45 cal, 9mm, 12 Gauge Shotgun slugs, and more.  All of these rounds were fired from semi-auto AR-15s, AK-47s, MAK-90s, Glocks, Revolvers, and pump shotguns.  

These 6x6"  plates are formed from 1/4" Abrasion Resistant Brinell Hardness 500 steel (AR500), the same variety used by the military in armored vehicles.  We laser cut each piece and add a 20 degree bend that conforms to the human torso.  After preparing the metal, we add a special  1/4" polymer  coating that serves to trap bullet fragments.

The 6x6 size fits most plate carriers including our own VIPER Modular Carrier and Defender.  We, of course, recommend purchasing a carrier from us; but, if you already own a carrier, these plates will likely fit.  

Each plate only weighs 2.7 pounds including the weight of the anti-spall coating.

After about a 1.5mth wait (Not any fault of IBA) to get all the plates I finally got what I ordered. Very satisfied. they actually appear more grey in color than black.

Very pleased. I purchased the basic Viper Modular Plate Carrier w/front and back armor plates back in January. I decided to go ahead and get the side plates but was a little worried that the side pockets would be too small. Yet, when I got them, they fit perfectly. I am glad I got the complete rig, as I didn't want to be lacking if some ill-advised and hasty legislation, banning armor, comes into being.

Very satisfied. Plates are very heavy, but far more durable than lighter ceramic. Consider your needs and buy accordingly. I preferred durability over lighter weight. These plates fit Osprey mark 4 carrier perfectly.
