These ultra-lightweight plates are curved to better conform to your chest. This plate is designed with an asymmetrical cut on the top left and the top right to allow for a more comfortable positioning of a rifle stock on either shoulder.
They are made of lightweight Dyneema & Spectra sealed with a tough textured polyurethane protective coating that is resistant to chemicals, gasoline, oil and extreme elements.
Unlike ceramic plates they are stress fracture resistant. You can take a tumble or toss the plate carrier without worrying that you might have damaged its integrity. Unlike a steel plate it will never rust or corrode.
Designed to be used with all of our BulletBlocker plate carriers or any plate carrier with a medium or large SAPI. (Small Arms Protective Insert)
