Level III++ Rifle Rated Body Armor

The DFNDR Armor® Rifle Rated Level III++ system was developed specifically against 5.56x45 M855 (SS109) Green Tip penetrator.  This system is NIJ Certified and also rated to defeat the Mild Steel Core Chinese and PS Ball Russian 7.62x39 AK-47 threats and standard steel jacketed/lead core .308 and copper jacketed/lead core 7.62, .223 and 5.56 threats at an exceptionally low weight of 4.1 lb. for a Medium Size plate.  Our Level III++ rifle rated hard armor plates are designed with a multi-curve profile to provide an ergonomic and comfortable fitting armor system that is intended to wear against your body all day.

DFNDR Armor® Body Armor is equipped with a state-of-the-art Trauma Mitigation Base to minimize the energy of an impact dramatically. All threats specified are tested at muzzle velocity and are listed in the ‘threat profile’ table below which describes the rated ammunition this armor system will defeat.

The DFNDR Armor® Level III++ system incorporates a Crystalline Ceramic Strike Face and Strike Core supported by our proprietary System Structural Reinforcement technology to enhance multi-hit ability. The backing support is engineered with the highest grade of ballistic materials; an ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) fiber, bound with a resin matrix to make it a hard stand-alone armor system and equipped with Spall-Tek to further reduce deflection of projectile fragments. This armor can be inserted into almost any plate carrier but is specially designed to perform with the DFNDR Armor® QRC System.

This system is independently tested and certified to the NIJ 0101.06 protocol at NIJ Certified Ballistic Labs in a Stand-Alone Configuration.

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

This review is in reference to the plate designed for the Vertx EDC transit sling. The fit of the plate is very snug, which isn’t a bad thing! The plate is the largest plate you can get into the bag, which is what you want. After installing the plate in the rear zipper pocket of the bag, and my Glock 19 in the concealment area, the bag seemed to stretch a little overnight and now fits everything perfectly. The plate is thin enough and light enough that you’ll forget its there. I love being able to have body armor with me wherever I go, and no one thinks a thing about it! I definitely recommend picking one of these plates up!

I saw a field test that demonstrated the effectiveness of DFNDR Armor at a GoRuck Firearms Day event, I purchased a pair of their Level IIIA Handgun rated Backpack Body Armor. The backpack armor plate fits perfectly into my GoRuck GR1 laptop pouch and it is 1.3 lbs, you don’t even notice it. The combination of superior craftsmanship and next generation armor is unbeatable. I’ve had my GR1 for 5+ years and is a great piece of gear.

I purchased the IIIA 9.5×15 size backpack armor for my Vanquest backpack and it fits fantastic! I really couldn’t believe how light it was when it showed up in the mail! It doesn’t add any weight to my pack at all! Thanks again to everyone at DFNDR, you guys were super helpful! Really great product!
