The best armor option for concealed protection, and an excellent choice for a lightweight overt loadout: Our S2 provides level IIIA protection and is built to be convenient and capable of stopping multiple hits from all handgun threats up to 1440 FPS. It is made of two alternating aramid types, layered in a special arrangement that allows the panel to work multi-directionally. The S2 soft panel armor is made of Aramid and built for a balance between affordability and top-level capability. It is lightweight (at just 1.25 lbs) and has strong stopping power (defeating all handgun threats).
Tested to NIJ 0101.06 standards, the S2 is capable of stopping all IIIA threats: 125-grain .357 SIG FMJ flat-nose bullets with speeds up to 1470 feet per second and 240-grain .44 Magnum Semi-Jacketed Hollow Point (SJHP) bullets with speeds up to 1430 ft/s.
Additionally, because of its symmetrical design, the Slim Panel provides the same protection from both sides; this means it can be placed in a backpack or handbag and provide protection when either worn behind you or held in front of you as a shield (note: slim armor panels will still have a "strike face" label, though it will be equally effective from either side).
The panel is designed, cut, sewn, and assembled in-house in Phoenix, Arizona, and has a 5-year shelf life.
