Level III+ Spartan AR550 Armor

We’ve taken our Level III Body Armor to a NEW level! Spartan Armor Systems™ is pleased to introduce our AR550 Body Armor!  With a 10% increase in ballistic core hardness, our level III+ AR550 armor defeats higher velocity threats such as XM193, M855, and M80! We’re special rifle threat validated!

Our AR550 armor hits the “sweet spot” in the Brinnell Hardness (BHN) range. With a core hardness of approximately 545-560 BHN, we have found our  ballistically rated variant of AR550 that we use is perfect for defeating higher velocity threats, while not exposing the armor plate to extreme stress due to forming.

Our AR550 Level III+ armor has our GEN2 lower cut radius. With a 10% increase in core hardness, this ballistic grade steel perfectly hits the “sweet spot”. It’s much harder than AR500, but not too hard to cause severe stress while forming.

Our AR550 Armor comes with the choice of single curve or our Advanced Triple Curve (ATC). An industry FIRST! Spartan Armor Systems™ is proud to be the FIRST in the industry to commercially offer triple-curved AR550 body armor. With higher velocity rifle threats commonly present throughout the United States, we’ve developed this AR550 armor to specifically defeat some common threats such as 5.56 x 45 XM193, 5.56 x 45 M855 /SS109 and 7.62 x 51 (.308 Winchester) at a rated velocity of 3,100 fps or less. Additionally, we’ve successfully defeated these threat profiles from Close Quarters Battle (CQB) distances…repeatedly!

 

Configuration:   This armor comes as a pair, meaning you will receive both front and back plates, and optional side plates

Level III+ Side Plates:   Choose from either 6″ x 6″ (small) or 6″ x 8″ (large)

Chest Plate Weight (per plate):   8x10 AR550 Shooters Cut: Base Coat 5lbs 5oz. Full Coat 6lbs 1oz.

Side Plate Weight (per plate):    6×6 approximately 2lbs 9oz (base coat), 2lbs 11oz (full coat), 6×8 approximately 3lbs 6oz (base coat), 3lbs 12oz (full coat).

Thickness:   .25″ AR550 plus approximately .25″ coating makes this slim profile plate overall .5-.6″ in total thickness

Please see our FAQ for weight specifications and other questions you may have.

As with all of our AR550 Armor products, we only use the highest grade of AR550 to manufacture our armor!  Remember, not all body armor is created equal! Read our “FAQ” to find out more about the AR550 Armor we use to construct our body armor!

Our AR550 armor hits the “sweet spot” in the Brinnell Hardness (BHN) range. With a core hardness of approximately 545-560 BHN, we have found our  ballistically rated variant of AR550 that we use is perfect for defeating higher velocity threats, while not exposing the armor plate to extreme stress due to forming.

  1. Good Stuff

    Posted by Unknown on Dec 7th 2016

    These plates are great. I have two sets. They shipped a lot sooner than expected and fit my carrier perfectly.

  2. Great fit.

    Posted by Unknown on Dec 6th 2016

    I got them quicker than expected. The plates are thin profile and the multicut really does hug onto your body. I was able to wear them for hours at the range comfortably. I honestly recommend these plates to anyone.

  3. fit

    Posted by Unknown on Oct 14th 2016

    I was concerned how the armor was going to ride in my carrier, but surprised that more comfortable than I thought

  4. Good Quality, Will Buy Again

    Posted by ANDREW on Oct 7th 2016

    Order was received within a week of order. Great quality and really excited to get some training in with it.

  5. First and possibly more

    Posted by Vince on Sep 20th 2016

    This was my first plate and the quality is superb and so was the shipping. Probably Got the product in about two weeks. This is going into my home defense setup (PIG brigade)and hopefully it doesn't need to be used. Planning on getting more in the future for other purposes and family members. For the price and quality, you can't beat them. Already have friends thinking about buying theirs.

  6. Great Product

    Posted by Roy on Sep 7th 2016

    Great product at a good price. Highly recommend.

  7. Self defense essential item

    Posted by Paul Johnson on Aug 22nd 2016

    My goal is to be prepared for any emergency, especially if the threat involves a firearm. The plates are ideal for upgrading my existing vest.

  8. Great product!

    Posted by Carl on Aug 2nd 2016

    I ordered the AR550 plates to add extra protection to my ballistic vest. Being a Law Enforcement officer I was concerned about recent attacks with assault rifles being the choice weapon. These plates are thin enough to wear everyday yet I have the added protection against larger projectiles. And with the swimmer cut and curvature of the plates they are quite comfortable. Spartan armor is truly a life saver and would highly recommend their products to anyone in need of ballistic protection!

  9. One of the best

    Super thin and light weight. The curves are just perfect
