SpectraShield Body Armor (Armor Technology Corp.)
I have a Level IIIA armor set, which will withstand up to .308 Winchester rifle rounds on the Lexan chest plate, and up to .44 Mag pistol rounds elsewhere. If you shoot at me, I will seriously not be happy, but I can absorb some of them, and if you are shooting at me, I will shoot back!

The ballistic materials are constructed of varying combinations of DuPont Aramid fibers such as Kevlar® and Spectra ShieldT; they have been designed through extensive ballistic research to provide the most appropriate ballistic combination needed to stop any given threat.

Trauma plate on the chest, with 8" x 11" curved Lexan® trauma plate for up to 7.62x51mm Armor Piercing steel-core NATO rifle rounds.
Ballistic protection for up to .44 Magnum rounds on all other surfaces.

All ballistic panels are protected in a water-repellent, rip stop nylon cover and are easily removable for cleaning of the outer carrier. The vest has a guarantee of 5-years, for storage in normal conditions for the ballistic panels, and 2 years for the carrier.
