Rugged, reliable, and re-engineered for enhanced performance and improved ergonomics; AR500 Armor® Level III+ Body Armor improves on our tried and true level III lineup with our new Level III+ body armor!

AR500 Armor® Level III+ Body Armor is capable of defeating higher level rifle threats, Level III+ armor offers enhanced ballistic protection against 5.56x45 M193, 5.56x45 M855/SS109 up to 3,100 feet per second, and 7.62x51 M80 Ball (.308) rifle threats up to 3,000 feet per second, and 7.62x51 AP (Black Tip) up to 2,800 feet per second! We accomplish this without sacrificing the weight or profile of our body armor! Weighing in at 8lb per 10" x 12" ASC model while maintaining the same ultra-thin ballistic core of only 0.26" as our level III body armor. We utilize a re-engineered ultra-high hard ballistic steel core, treated to AR500 Armor® specifications to maintain all benefits that our ballistic steel body armor is known for; multi-hit capability, shelf life, and stress fracture resistance!

Coated with our PAXCON (a division of Line-X) spall and fragmentation protective coating. Our ballistic steel plate is unmatched in the industry and is formulated and treated specifically to our specifications for improved consistency, durability, and then tested to NIJ standards. Our ballistic plate core is stress fracture resistant, features an ultra-low profile ballistic core of only 0.26”, and is designed to handle extreme abuse in day to day use, training, and less than ideal storage conditions. AR500 Armor® body armor will outlast alternative armor solutions such as Ceramic, Dyneema, UHMWPE, and raw/uncoated steel trauma plates. Our new generation II design on all level III+ body armor improves ergonomics and comfort. Every curve and cut has a purpose; to improve comfort, maximize protection of your vitals, and minimize weight. Our gen II profile does not sacrifice stability in plate carriers and allows for increase mobility during bending, kneeling/squatting, and prone positions. AR500 Armor® is leading the industry in comfortable, affordable, and reliable body armor. Our 10” x 12” Advanced Shooters Cut (ASC) armor plates fit nearly all industry standard plate carriers and all plate carriers capable of accepting Medium and Large SAPI body armor plates. Our 10” x 12” ASC body armor offers adequate coverage of your vitals which include your heart, lungs, and surrounding blood vessels on most people. 10” x 12” is the most common size and fits the widest selection of plate carriers available on the market.
