Level 3A Body Armor

For those seeking a high level of protection but who still want the ease of movement provided by softer materials, level 3A body armor is the perfect choice. It is light enough and thin enough that it can easily be worn underneath clothing in a covert plate carrier. 3A armor is ideal for both law enforcement officers and civilians who require more protection but do not want to be weighed down with the heavy steel of level 3 body armor.

Our L3A body armor inserts are constructed from the best ballistic Kevlar material available. The advantage to using Kevlar is that it has a high tensile strength-to-weight ratio, which means that it can withstand a great amount of force without breaking. In accordance with the National Institute of Justice rating system, our 3A armor is suitable for protection against handguns and other small arms, including .44 Magnum and .357 SIG. Our inserts can even withstand a hit from a Smith & Wesson .50 cal!

You can feel confident that you are purchasing a superior product when you buy from Body Armor Megastore. Our level 3A inserts, as with our many of our other products, have been independently tested and certified by H.P. White Laboratory for effectiveness. Using state-of-art equipment, they determined that our L3A armor inserts meet the rigorous NIJ standards. They conducted an additional test in which they submerged the inserts, and they were still proven to be effective against multiple types of small arms fire. Not only that, but they are capable of receiving multiple blows and remaining intact.

With each plate weighing only 1.2 pounds, these Kevlar inserts can be used by just about anyone seeking protection. The lightweight, strong material won’t impede your movement by weighing you down. It can be worn by amateurs at the shooting range who are not used to carrying excessive weight. The inserts are durable enough to stand up to just about everything except for high-powered rifles. Level 3A armor is ideal for law enforcement officials. Since police officers and others put their lives on the line every day, it just makes sense to be ready for a situation that unexpectedly turns hostile. Studies show that anywhere from hundreds to thousands of officers’ lives are saved every year by wearing proper protection. It is typically recommended that the armor you wear should be equivalent to the duty load that you’re carrying. That’s because there are situations where someone might grab your weapon and attempt to harm you with it, so it’s best to be prepared with the right level of protection.

As with all body armor plates, it is important to make sure that you also buy a tactical vest or plate carrier. Our vests are available in sizes medium to extra-large, to ensure that everyone is able to get a vest with a proper fit. If the plate carrier is too large or too small, it will not provide adequate protection.

At Body Armor Megastore, we provide you with the right level of protection for your needs. For more information on our quality products, call 51-ARMOR-GUY (512-766-7489).
