Level IV Plate
If you’re going into a high-risk area where rifle-caliber threats may pose a risk, our NIJ Level IV-rated hard armor plates can help offer the protection you need. The plates are designed to fit our All Star tactical armor carrier, the Freedom concealable armor carrier, and our Concealable Plate Carrier, but will fit other plate carriers made for armor plates of this size. Our Level IV plates are made of a ceramic composite tested to meet the NIJ’s test rating for protection against armor-piercing projectiles by stopping 1 round of .30-06 M2AP ammunition. As such, it will also stop the equivalent of lesser rounds. The plates have a single-curve contour for comfort and are covered in 1000D Cordura nylon to protect them from liquids, chemicals, sweat and the elements.
NIJ Level IV for one round of .30-06 M2AP “Black Tip” ammunition and the equivalent of lesser rounds. Special Threat Tested against 7.62x51 M80 ball, 5.56x45 M193, 5.56x45 M855, and 7.62x39 M67 ammunition
- Coverage: 10”x12”
- Armor Weight: 7.4 lbs per plate

If you don’t have a carrier or vest that can hold these plates, add a concealable plate carrier.
