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. Side plates are available in two models, the standard flat AR-500 model, and the curved AR-600 XP model. The standard model has the same protection levels as our standard Pro Plate, and the XP Model matches the protection level of our XP Pro Plate. Each Side Plate exceeds Level III capabilities and features a full layer of our GT Advanced Ballistic Coating. This coating has been tested effective at encapsulating 99% of bullet fragments from Steel Core 5.56 at only 10ft! 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".
