AR500 Armor® 6” x 8” Side Plate Level III Body Armor – Patent Pending

AR500 Armor® Level III Body Armor is manufactured from an extremely rugged ballistic grade steel core and coated with our PAXCON (a division of Line-X) spall and fragmentation protective coating. Our ballistic steel plate is unmatched in the industry and is formulated and treated specifically to our specifications for improved consistency, durability, and then tested to NIJ standards. Our ballistic plate core is stress fracture resistant, features an ultra-low profile of only .25”, and is designed to handle extreme abuse in day to day use, training, and less than ideal storage conditions. AR500 Armor® body armor will outlast alternative armor solutions such as Ceramic, Dyneema, UHMWPE, and raw/uncoated steel trauma plates.

Level III Rating: AR500 Armor® body armor is Stand-Alone and Multi-hit capable. Designed to defeat rifle threats up to 7.62x51 M80 NATO Ball (.308 Winchester) at velocities up to 2,780 feet per second and all pistol calibers.

AR500 Armor® 6” x 8” side armor plates provide light weight and ultra slim rifle threat protection to the sides of your plate carrier. The enormous benefit of their thin .25” profile shines when you’re physically wearing the side plates, particularly on an inside the cummerbund side plate pouch. Our 6” x 8”side plates are thinner than Ceramic and other comparable side plates, and are on par with the profile of soft inserts but with increased rifle threat protection. Improve ergonomics and comfort by having less interference from your side plates with our AR500 Armor® 6” x 8” side plates. These will fit in standard plate pockets that are capable of accepting 6” x 6”, 6” x 8”, and 8” x 8” side armor plates. The orientation on the 6” x 8” side plate armor is intended to be worn with the 8” side vertical.

AR500 Armor® 6” x 8” Side Plate Body Armor Features:

  • 6” x 8” Side Plate Body Armor fits in side plate pouches capable of accepting 6” x 6”, 6” x 8”, and 8” x 8” side armor plates

AR500 Armor Body Armor Stress Test 06:07

AR500 Armor Body Armor Stress Test. We get asked quite a bit "How does your body armor hold up compared to ceramic or other comparable options" - So we put together a stress test video to give you an idea. We run over our Body Armor with our 9,600lb forklift, perform multiple drop tests on each surface, and follow up with some live fire testing with hard hitting rounds at just 20 feet. Body Armor Featured: 10" x 12" level III Curved Advanced Shooters Cut with our PAXCON Line-X spall and fragmentation mitigation coating. Rounds tested: (5) 5.56 M855/SS109 Penetrators and (5) 7.62x51 M80 NATO Ball at just 20 feet. Fired from an IWI Tavor 16", and Kel-Tec RFB 18". We know you have many choices when it comes to purchasing your body armor, and we want to help you make an educated decision on your purchase. Due diligence, and know the quality and reliability of your armor as what you're about to purchase could save your life. It's important to remember that not all body armor and material are created equal. AR500 Armor utilizes top of the line ballistic plate that has been treated to our specifications, and we handle all manufacturing in-house. We're an approved OEM applicator of our PAXCON fragmentation mitigation coating, and all body armor is subject to rigorous quality control standards, independent lab, and in-house ballistic performance testing. All of our Body Armor is put through a multi-stage cleaning and etching process to maximize adhesion of our PAXCON Line-X Spall & Fragmentation Mitigation protective coating. This ensures reliable performance and a coating that will not simply peel off and experience "blowouts" through the edge. We will always stay true to our philosophy of manufacturing top quality body armor and ballistic solutions at the most affordable price in the industry! We're continuously raising the bar for quality standards and high value gear. *NOTE* The gray area around the plate is the primer that we used to cover the steel backing with. The primer wasn't completely dry during our drop test.* Visit us at Don't forget to Like Us on Facebook and help spread the word! Sub to us here on YouTube for more videos! Follow us on Twitter @
