In June of 2020 we introduced new removable inserts for our soft armor that are lower in weight. Now we offer our standard weight as light and the new lighter and lightest options. All are Certified Level IIIA by the National Institute of Justice with similar performance. In the world of body armor the more you spend the less in weight it gets. Our Lightest option is the best by far!
