V50 – 17 grain fragment 650m/s to STANAG 2920

Hard Armor Plates

Defense Optics Group carries the incredibly lightweight line of Legacy Safety and Security hard NIJ.06 Level III and IV rifle plates. 

NIJ. Level III Hard Plate

The super lightweight 3.2 lbs level III poly plate is buoyant, thin at 1" and tested with 6 rounds of M80 steel ball @ min/max velocity 2766/2800 fps with a min/max BFD @ 38.18/41.03mm. These plates far outperform any other poly plates we have ever shot while being lighter and thinner by a wide margin. 

NIJ. Level IV Hard Plate

At only 5.2 lbs, the Level IV is possibly the best protection you will ever wear while also being the lightest. If you are geared up and on your feet all day you will appreciate the lightweight performance.

Independent tests have consistently shot this level IV plate with 4 rounds of .30-06 with zero failures.
