Level IV body armor is the highest rated NIJ certified personal body armor available on the commercial market.   This 10″ x 12″ plate made by Honos Armor is the lightest Level IV protection we offer.  At 5.5 lbs, it’s nearly 3 lbs lighter than our other Level IV options.  Level IV body armor provides multi-hit protection against .30 caliber armor piercing (AP) bullets with a specified mass of 10.8g (166gr) and a velocity of 2880 fps, and all lesser rifle, shotgun, and handgun rounds.  Level IV plates are typically constructed of composite materials to provide the lightest plates possible while still meeting the extreme energy of the high calibers they are designed to stop.  Honos Armor plates are a unique hybrid of 100% ceramic integrated with layers of Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMWPE).  The polyethylene material provides better crack resistance to the ceramic from fracturing due to harsh handling and seals the plate completely against moisture and most harsh chemicals and environments.  The plate is curved and cut in the standard shooters cut for a more comfortable and ergonomic fit within a carrier, suitable to use as either a front or back plate.  The plate is assembled in the USA.

The Honos 10″ x 12″ Level IV Lightweight plate is more expensive than the AR500 Level IV 10″ x 12″ plate due to its significantly decreased weight, but the increased benefit of lightweight Level IV armor makes it an attractive option for many customers.  Due to our distribution agreement with Honos Armor, you must contact us directly for current pricing.
