Level III+ Spartan Armor
What Is Level III+ Body Armor?
No body armor plate is completely bulletproof. Plates are given a level of ballistic resistance by the National Institute of Justice (NIJ). NIJ establishes standards and test protocol, certifying that body armor is within regulation and fit for use. NIJ levels range from level 1 to level 4. NIJ has a level III body armor, but does not certify level III+ armor plates. Plates with a level 3+ have been independently tested to exceed the threat level rating of level 3 body armor.

While level 3 is the most common body armor, level 3+ body armor provides a higher level of threat protection without compromising much weight and maneuverability.
What Threats Can Level 3+ Soft Body Armor Stop?
Level III+ armor plates will withstand impact from all handgun calibers. These body armor plates also defeat rifle rounds up to 7.62 x 51, along with light armor piercing (AP) projectiles, such as the 5.56 x 45 (M855). Each level 3+ body armor plate is tested and certified to meet or exceed ballistic resistance as specified under NIJ 0101.06, plus Special Rifle Threats Validated.
