Spartan Armor Systems™ Light Weight Elaphros UHMWPE Level 3 body armor plates


Spartan Armor Systems™ Elaphros Level III body armor plates are built from ultra high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE), a cutting-edge material known for its lightweight construction and strength — 5x stronger than steel. UHMWPE is generally cheaper to produce than most other ballistic materials, providing buyers a cost-effective option that does not sacrifice performance or protection. At only 3.5 lbs per plate, the lightweight design allows for maximum mobility and maneuverability, optimal for tactically demanding environments and missions.

Our advanced, light-weight NIJ compliant level 3 plates are lab tested and verified to meet or exceed ballistic resistance under NIJ-0101.06 Level III specifications. Due to the revolutionary UHMWPE construction, all Spartan Armor UHMWPE Level III body armor plates are stab resistant and provide excellent fragmentation mitigation properties.

Spartan Armors offers 3 sizes of UHMWPE body armor; Level III Elaphros body armor inserts and level III UHMWPE side plates. You can pair many of our Level III armor plates with our numerous plate carriers.

All UHMWPE level 3 plates come with a 5-year warranty and a 5-year shelf life when properly cared for and maintained. And as always, these products are 100% American made — composed of only the best American-made materials and proudly assembled in our state-of-the-art facility in Tucson, Arizona.
