Default New! AR500 Armor Carbon Nanotube IIIA Soft Body Armor

We've been excited to launch our new line of soft armor for quite some time! AR500 Armor is utilizing Carbon Nanotube technology to produce some of the lightest weight, most robust, and affordable body armor in the market.

Our new 11" x 14" Backpack Armor model weighs in at just 1lb, and is level IIIA rated, stand-alone.

Coming to the market at just $130 per panel, it is a fraction of the cost of other alternatives and the lightest weight in the industry!

Not only do we use Carbon Nanotube construction to save weight and increase strength, we have incorporated a Non-Newtonian back face which out performs traditional foams and provides superior impact protection. This is brand new to the soft armor industry, and we're proud to be among the first to bring it to the market!

Flexible in all directions, our new IIIA Carbon Nanotube Soft Body Armor is easily concealable and nearly disappears in your backpack, laptop bag, luggage, BOB, or plate carrier.

Available for purchase through our website: http://www.ar500armor.com/ar500-armo...ack-armor.html

The Calguns discount code is good for 10% off and includes our new Carbon Nanotube Soft Body Armor!!! enter "CALGUNS" during checkout to receive the discount.

Don't forget to subscribe on YouTube for more product release information and tests!

Looks interesting, I'm kind of looking into getting one of your backpacks and this just may be the icing on the cake
And is it possible to get your backpack without all the webbing on the back and pockets?

At this time we don't offer any backpacks with the molle webbing. We're adding new items frequently though, so it's back to keep checking back!

As of now it's been independently lab tested, and is undergoing NIJ certification. We'll post more details on this as they become available. We appreciate your interest!

Any plans for spear or balcs cut soft nano tube armor? Is there an estimated shelf life on these like Kevlar armor?

We do have them designed, but not yet scheduled for production. A few models are queued up for release first, including our Advanced Shooters Cut. Keeping checking back for more info!

We have our Carbon Nanotube Armor listed at a 10 year shelf life.
