TurtleSkin Recieves Level IIIA Certification
Concealable Ballistic Protection
Turtleskin SoftPlate technology is designed and tested to ensure higher safety margins of penetration and blunt trauma protection in a concealable Level IIIA package, the highest level of concealable body armor protection from handgun threats. SoftPlate provides excellent comfort and flexibility while benefiting from the higher performance of specialized laminate materials typically used in hard armor ballistic protection. The ability to absorb and dissipate more energy over a greater backface area reduces non-penetrating injuries associated with blunt trauma to the chest and torso.
SoftPlate Technology Reduces Backface Signature
Designed to provide the best ballistic performance and blunt trauma protection of any Level IIIA concealable armor vest on the market, all TurtleSkin ballistic packages are developed and tested in-house to Warwick's strict ballistics testing standards. The NIJ maximum allowable backface signature of a .44 Magnum round is 44 mm at a velocity range of 1400-1460 ft/s. TurtleSkin Body Armor ensures an average BFS (Back Face Signature) of only 31 mm, which provides a greater margin of safety.
Innovative Ballistic Package Carrier Design
TurtleSkin Body Armor provides more comfort, concealability, and custom fit. Each ballistic armor vest is custom sized, tailored, and pre-flexed for the individual. The innovative carrier design includes a Neoprene® suspension system with adjustable lumbar support.
Model #: P-108 (NIJ Certification # BP-048M)
