Super Lightweight Protection

The VestGuard Hard Armour Plate code named MAX-3 is the lightest plate in the MAX range weighing only 1.2 kilos and has natural buoyancy. This high tech plate made from 100% Ultra high molecular weight polyethylene when used with VestGuard advanced soft armour solutions will boost body armour performance to include 6 shots of the AK47, M80 NATO ball round and other high powered rifle ammunition.

Multi-hit performance: The MAX-3 is able to maintain performance even after being hit by multiple rounds.

Angle shot performance: All VestGuard Hard Armour Plates have been designed to stop and contain angle shots thus reducing the danger to nearby individuals from ricochet.

Edge shot performance: The MAX-3 provides the same level of protection right to the edge of the plate providing maximum protection.

Backface deformation (BFD): The back face trauma which has been recorded by independent testing shows this plate performs well within the NIJ test criteria.

 

Made in the UK

Manufactured by VestGuard in the UK, tested and certified to the NIJ Level III (3) standards by independent test laboratories

Each plate is 250mm x 300mm x 18mm with shooter cut corners and is recommended that each vest be equipped with two plates, one for the front and one of the rear, that fit inside pockets on the outer carrier of VestGuard overt body armour.
