• Side Plate


    The Side Plates are sold individually so be sure to select quantity 2 if you need both. Check your plate carrier for appropriate sizing and contact us if you need help.  Each Side Plate exceeds Level III capabilities and features a military grade coating called PAXCON to control shrapnel. This coating has been tested effective at encapsulating 99% of bullet fragments from Steel Core 5.56 at only 15ft!  We don't offer "Base Coats" or "Build Up Coats" because all of our armor receives a full 200 mil coating. Our standard coating is the same thickness as other company's "Build-Up Coats".
