These side plates offer additional side protection at an economical price. Easily paired with our Advanced Plate Carrier with Cummerbund, as well as many other carriers that include a cummerbund, they offer a perfect solution for maximum coverage.
Perfect for anyone facing multiple threats from a wide range of handguns or small arms. Whether you are a military contractor, security specialist, or special operations officer adding these side plates to your overall ballistic protection kit will ensure the protection needed to return home at the end of your mission.
Comfort and Fit are a top concern for National Body Armor and our customers. After all, your body armor only works if you wear it and you will only wear it if it is comfortable. Therefore, we have engineered the Side Plate, Steel to be a comfortable as possible. The single curve design, two different size options, and the ability to pair with our most popular cummerbund vests make it one of the best options for all-around ballistic protection.
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.

Protection you can count on. These Steel Plates offer NIJ Certified Level III ballistic protection and perform at Level III+. We also offer two size options, 6"x6" or 6"x*", to best fit your needs and specific carrier. The Polyurea coating reduces dangerous spalling, and all plates are multi-hit capable. With Special Threat Performance these plates will defeat all types of common handguns as well as many common 5.56 or 7.62 small arms (see ballistic data for specifics). Plus, our products are made in the USA using American labor which allows National Body Armor to institute a rigorous internal testing protocol.
