Armor Level IIIA Ballistic Panel

The newest proprietary manufacturing technology from Hardwire® equates to the lightest armor in the world, with unprecedented stopping power. This sets a new standard in shock dissipation physics, momentum transfer efficiency, and ultimately,
ballistic properties.

Made of Dyneema® fibers and pressed under 25 million pounds of force at precise temperatures, Hardwire turns multiple layers of material into a single system. The results are millions of fibers that once acted independently, now act as one. 

Features

  • Lightweight, 30% lighter than any other soft armor on the market 
  • Panels have a low density allowing them to float in water 
  • Impact energy is spread laterally across the panel improving ballistic protection and reducing trauma 
  • Made of Dyneema® fibers 
  • NIJ 0101.06 Level IIIA compliant
