Body Armor Direct is proud to offer our top-of-the-line Level III+ Lightweight Poly Plate. Ultra-High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMWPE) is the future of ballistic protection. By combining UHMWPE fabrics, ceramic, and a special pressing technique we have met the challenge. The result is a single curve design that is lighter, thinner, and better performing while also fitting the body for maximum protection.

Perfect for anyone facing multiple threats from a wide range of modern handguns and many small arms. Whether you are a security professional, military contractor, or law enforcement officer the Level III+ Lightweight Poly Plate will not only meet but exceed, all your needs.

Comfort and Fit are a prime concern for Body Armor Direct and our customers. Therefore, we utilize only the best, most modern materials and manufacturing techniques. This allows us to provide a lightweight, thin, high-performing ballistic option that will allow all-day wear.

Backed by the Body Armor Direct Warranty. Each carrier is warranted against defects in workmanship or materials for 24 months from the date of purchase. Panels are warranted for 5 years from the date of purchase to conform to minimum NIJ protocol in an actual confrontation. Please refer to the Body Armor Direct Warranty page for specific requirements and limitations

Protection you can count on. These plates are NIJ Certified Level III+ and capable of defeating multiple threats from all modern handguns and many small arms. The fully sealed Polyurea coating reduces stress fractures and protects against liquids, chemicals, and harsh elements. Plus, all our products are manufactured in the USA, by American labor.

A price you can afford. You can never put a price on returning safely from each shift or mission. However, at only $39.00 the Trauma Pad is a bargain. Body Armor Direct does not want cost to come between you and the protection you deserve. Therefore, we offer several payment options including 4 interest-free installment payments, ShopPay, PayPal Credit, and government purchase orders.

        Level III+

        Concerning lightweight Level III+ plates, they are surely easier to carry than the others. Every pound, or even ounce, taken off a load can make a difference. That comes from years as a Marine and a backpacker. Ounces matter. And pounds, as in this case, are terrific! Of course, I had to test it ballistically, and hope not to, but one is betting that it will do the job when it's needed.
        To me, it's worth the extra money for these plates, and also the lightweight soft body armor, which I also have.
        Good stuff!!

        Appears to be a nice product.

        Fits well in the body armor. I have no plans to test it so i really have no comment. Peace of mind

        The plates are super well built. I'm running them in an AR500 plate carrier and they fit snug and feel light weight. Def worth the extra money for the Poly over the steel. Dave was great when I called...nice to hear the owner instead of a recording.
