Soft Armor Inserts



We first introduced our soft armor inserts in 2020. Now, we are proud to offer them in all three weight options, each NIJ Certified Level IIIA or Level IIIA+. This allows you to have a removable soft armor option that can be transferred between all your carrier options, letting you meet any mission needs you encounter.

Perfect for anyone who needs dependable, lightweight, transferable soft armor. Whether you are a security professional, law enforcement officer, or private citizen in need of ballistic protection our Soft Armor Inserts offer a cost-effective, NIJ Certified option.

Comfort and fit are top goals at National Body Armor. With that in mind, we design each of our products to provide a lightweight, high-quality option that can be worn all day, every day. It is highly concealable and will fit many of our top carriers including the tactical and tank top options. In a world where lighter is better, we offer this insert in all three of our weight options including light, lighter, and lightest. It is also available in a wide range of sizes from small to 5xl to ensure the best personal fit possible.

Backed by the National Body Armor 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 National Body Armor Warranty page for specific requirements and limitations

Protection you can trust. Each insert is constructed in the USA, using American labor, and mostly on traditional sewing machines. This, along with National Body Armor rigorous internal standards, allows us to produce only the highest-quality protection. Plus, all Soft Armor Inserts are NIJ Certified Level IIIA or Level IIIA+, with the Lighter and Lightest options providing special threat protection. 

The price you can afford. At only $620.00, depending on the weight and size selected, our Soft Armor Inserts are a bargain, however, National Body Armor does not want cost to come between you and the protection you deserve. With that in mind, we offer several payment options including 4 interest-free installment payments, ShopPay, PayPal Credit, and government purchase orders.

Soft body armor

The two orders, one for a carrier, the second for soft armor, arrived really fast by comparison to most things these days. Of course, I haven't tested the new armor, and don't intend to. I am placing my life in your hands, and based upon your word. Compared to my military experience with body armor, this is a dream to wear. I bought the lightest (and most expensive) version, but having the lightest possible load is very appealing to me, even if I have to pay a few (hundred) more dollars for it. I plan to get more, but am on a budget, so those buys are in the " whenI have the money" category.
Anyway, thanks. Exactly as advertised, quick delivery, and great fit. Hope the time never comes where I have to use it. Need more for everyone, and will slowly build the inventory.
Great service!

Lighter IIIA+ Ballistic Panels

I needed soft armor panels for my outer carrier, under my ceramic plates. Thankfully, you list the vest panel sizes, which allowed me to find the right size panels to fit. The panels were in stock and shipped quickly. They appear to be well made and should serve me very well. Thank you for listing the panel sizes!
