Level IV body armor is the highest rated NIJ certified personal body armor available on the commercial market.   This 10″ x 12″ plate is AR500 Armor’s latest Level IV version and provides single-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.  AR500’s C Series Level IV plates are constructed of a monolithic ceramic layer with an E-glass backer.  The 10″ x 12″ plate weighs 7.5 lbs with a .75″ thick profile.  The form is a single-curve design with a ALSC cut which allows a more ergonomic fit within a carrier, suitable to use as either a front or back plate.  The plate is covered with a FragLock coating to enhance its frag protection from bullet spalling.  The plate is 100% constructed in the USA and has a 5 year manufacturer’s warranty.

Before your final purchase, you’ll also want to decide if you’d like to add a trauma pad for your plate.  Trauma pads are constructed of a non-Newtonian material and are designed for the sole purpose of reducing the amount of blunt force energy felt by the armor user.  They offer no additional ballistic protection and add about 5.9 oz and .25″ in thickness to your plate carrier.

*Please Note: AR500 does not currently accept returns on Level IV Armor Plates.
