OUR STEEL DEFENDER BALLISTIC BODY ARMOR PLATES are manufactured specifically for us from 1/4" thick 500 Brinell hardness armor plate steel which exhibits high-hardness and are certified N.I.J. Threat Level lll. 500 Brinell hardness armor plate steel is used to stop high velocity projectiles, i.e., bullets. This armor steel plate is particularly useful in protecting against blunt trauma, knives and firearms. The N.I.J threat level is determined by 3 factors – the size of the round that the product is meant to defend, the speed at which that round is traveling, and the distance the round will travel before reaching the target.

Steel Defender steel is quenched and tempered at very high temperatures to sustain a tough surface for the best levels of protection.

My crew actually tested one plate. Our hornady rounds could barely make a dent up to .45. With rifles we used both 5.56 and .308, the .308 made a large dent. The plate never gave in. (Posted on 3/23/16)
Good value
Review by sean
I was pleasantly surprised at the quality and finish of these plates. They fit well in my Condor carrier. As plates alone, they seem heavier than normal but once on the carrier and on, they were fine. I would buy these again and suggest them. (Posted on 8/13/15)

Review by CHUKLZ
These plates work beautifully. A couple of guys from my unit and I took all kinds of rounds to this plate from close range to 50 yards. Calibers ranging from 9mm, .40, 45 acp, .223, 5.56 green tip and .308 NATO. It held against everything. (Posted on 6/2/15)
