Default What is level III+ Body Armor?

What is III+ Body Armor? III+ is a manufactures term used to describe body armor that exceeds level III threats, and it’s not all created equal. In this case, our level III+ armor is constructed from a reformulated, improved, and proprietary ballistic steel core. The result is a significant increase in material hardness & ballistic performance over anything currently available in the steel body armor industry.

These improvements allow us to defeat higher velocity threats than standard level III body armor is capable of. Our level III+ core is a true and significant advancement in steel core body armor, achieving performance at never before seen levels. All without sacrificing weight and thickness compared to level III body armor!

It’s important to note that since Level III+ is a manufacture term, not all level III+ body armor is created equal, or perform on the same level. In some cases, typically with UHMWPE body armor, level III+ simply denotes that the armor will it will defeat 5.56 M855/SS109 rounds. Where in our case, our level III body armor has no issues even with a level III classification. The term III+ will vary in terms of what the armor is capable of defeating. When searching for III+ body armor it's important to understand exactly what threats a specific manufactures III+ armor is designed to defeat.
