Our Level IIIA body armor is Stand-Alone and Multi-Hit capable and designed to defeat pistol caliber threats up to .44 magnum, and .357 SIG at 1,430 feet per second or lower, including all lesser pistol calibers. 

We offer three Level IIIA armor types:

  • Rimelig:  This soft body armor is for everyone! It can be applied, both in the field, and in every-day life, without a serious tax on your wallet. Get the performance you expect from AR500 Armor® Body Armor, without a sacrifice in quality or value. Constructed with Imported Aramid Fibers, Rimelig armor is designed, cut, sewn, and assembled right here in the USA. All soft armor has a limited 5 year warranty.
  • Hybrid:  Our flagship Hybrid IIIA soft body armor is constructed from industry leading materials from Honeywell Spectra Shield®, Gold Shield®, and other ballistic fabric from respected manufacturers.  We've harnessed the full ballistic capabilities of these materials maximizing synergy between components; creating the ultimate Hybrid IIIA soft body armor panel. The result is an ultra-light, thin, high strength, and flexible armor system in a 1lb package (10" x 12" ASC model)! All soft armor has a limited 5 year warranty.
  • Steel:  All the ballistic protection of the Hybrid and Rimelig armor systems, while also being stab and slash resistant! Steel also has a 20 year warranty period! Our lightweight level IIIA steel plate comes standard with a build-up coating of our PAXCON anti-spall and fragmentation material, as well as an ergonomic curve.
