• Costa Ludus Armis


    Worn by the Prepared, Designed to Protect, Built to Prevail

    After testing Steel Ops armor himself, Chris Costa of Costa Ludus basically demanded we create a custom plate built to his specs.  Through trial and error this plate is the result of that collaboration.  The Armis features our "Urban Cut" shape that is unique to any armor plate on the market.  It features our Tri-Curve fit which not only improves how the plate sits against the chest but also distributes weight across muscle mass to decrease "felt weight".  As of January 4th, 2021 this plate is now dual certified with a stand alone NIJ 0101.06 Level 3 Certification while using 5mm AR-600 steel that is also NIJ 0108.01 Level 3 Certified.  All of our armor is special threat rated (+) to stop both M193 and M855 at 3100fps.  Our Enhanced Ballistic Coating is applied at a full thickness, no base coats, using a proprietary steel preparation method ensuring unparalleled encapsulation of fragmentation and has proven capable of containing over 3000 grains of ammunition on a single plate.   


    NIJ 0101.06 & 0108.01 Level 3(+) Certified 8.75"x11.5" Tri-Curve 5mm AR-600 "Urban Cut" Fully Coated: 6.0 lbs (+/-5%)
