The A2 body armor from Armored Republic is thin, low-profile, and low-weight- giving you maximum mobility without compromising stopping power. This curved armor plate has our durable FragLock™ coating and is especially mobile at just 5.5 pounds with a thickness of 0.26”. Made with a custom steel alloy blend, this level 3 plus protection defeats all pistols and most rifles, including 5.56 M193 and M855 at speeds of up to 3,000 FPS. Guarantee yourself flexibility on the mission with next-level protection.

-Whether you’re looking for something comfortable for long hours on duty, or something lightweight to be able to keep up with fast-paced action on the field, the lightweight A2 - Alloy Body Armor from Armored Republic has you covered.

Tested to go above and beyond NIJ level 3 standards, the curved, shooters cut A2 armor plate is level 3+ rated to defeat all pistols and most rifle ammunition, including 5.56x45 M193, 5.56x45 M855/SS109 at 3,000 FPS as well as AK-47 rounds (7.62x39) and .308 (7.62x51 M80 NATO Ball) at 2,850 FPS. Also, thanks to the custom steel alloy blend, it is able to protect against several hits without shattering or breaking like ceramic or polyethylene would. It also provides the same protection on the edges as it does in the center, giving you true edge-to-edge coverage.
