An extremely lightweight NIJ III+ ballistic plate for plate carriers and body armor vests. This plate is ridiculously light at only 1.5 kg (3.3 lbs)

Compared to ceramic NIJ IV plates, you'll save up to 3 kg (6.6 lbs) weight! Weight really makes a difference when you want to stay agile and alert for extended periods. Also, the material is especially resistant against multiple hits close to each other.

  • Stand Alone: does not require soft armour backing to reach the specified level of protection
  • SAPI cut, dimensions 254 x 305 mm / 10" x 12". Thickness 28 mm (1 1/8")
  • Multi Curve: contours comfortably to the body
  • Closed, water-resistant top
  • Weight: 1.5 kg / 3.3 lbs.
  • Material: 100 % HPPE (High-Performance Polyethylene).

NIJ III level protection

The NIJ 101.06 standard level III is tested with six hits from a 7.62 NATO rifle. In short, it offers protection from common non-AP rifle rounds. In addition, the plate is tested against these:

  • 7.62x39 MSC
  • 5.56x45 mm M193

Made by Protection Group Danmark

The Danish PGD is a fairly recent name in ballistic protection but one we believe will be around for a long time. PGD makes vests and plates as well as helmets for demanding use. The strong point of PGD is their transparency about testing methods and certificates, this is something we appreciate a lot. Protective equipment is something you must be able to trust.
