When armor coverage is your primary concern, the all-inclusive Testudo armor plate carrier has you covered.

Named after the Roman army’s defensive formation, the Testudo comes ready to provide you with the maximum coverage of all our plate carriers, right out of the box.

The Testudo Lite is nearly identical to the Testudo Gen 2. Without the extra mesh padding, the cummerbund fits the carrier closely around your body. More than a one-size-fits-all solution; This distributes weight across your torso more evenly to lighten the load on your shoulders. It is adjustable between male T-shirt sizes Medium to XXXL. Features Plenty of PALS webbing for attaching your MOLLE-compatible pouches, holsters, and accessories. The generous supply of Velcro -- covering all the PALS webbing -- offers superior versatility for the placement of medical, moto, or other patches or gear.

AR500 10"x12" Level III Multi-Curve Heritage Plate is made of a custom steel alloy blend that increases its strength. It boasts Level III rifle protection, multi-hit capability, and a FragLock Base Coating to deflect fragmentation. Additionally, this armor plate has a lengthy shelf life, retaining its full strength for twenty years.  

AR500 Armor Heritage armor plate is rated to stop 7.62x51 M80 NATO Ball (.308 Winchester) at a velocity of up to 2,750 FPS, and special threat tested to stop 5.56mm M855/SS109 (Green Tip) at a velocity of 2,750 FPS.

NOTE: Plates can be used by a left-handed shooter but do have the right-handed shooter cut. 

10"x12" Trauma pads from Armored Republic are designed to be worn in conjunction with and behind your body armor to reduce the amount of energy transferred to your body, reducing felt energy through your armor and mitigating backface deformation.
