The Basic Panel is our smaller size Threat Level IIIA (3A) Panel and weighs 10 oz. This is the same level of anti-ballistic protection found in all of our standard size ballistic panel products, but made small enough to fit in smaller packs, bags, and purses. Simply insert the panel in your favorite bag for instant Threat Level IIIA ballistic protection. You can even swap your panel(s) from bag to bag. All small Threat level IIIA panels are approximately 1/4 inch thick and will fit discretely in most packs, bags and purses.
Ballistic Protection also saves lives in bomb fragmentation and explosive incidents. There are thousands of cases of shrapnel being stopped by body armor. However, shrapnel and fragments can take so many shapes and forms that it is very difficult to "rate" the levels of protection. Ammunition based rating systems, like the NIJ Threat Level system, seem to be the best way to measure the strength of a material in a projectile impact test. Threat Level 3A is the HIGHEST level of protection available in soft body armor (vests).
Higher levels of protection are in the form of "hard" armoring: Ceramic, Composite or Metal Plates in pockets that protect the most vital organs, other than the head.
