Spartan Armor Systems AR500 Level III Body Armor - Swimmers Cut (Set of Two)
With Spartan Swimmers Cut Spartan™ Omega™ AR500 Body Armor, the operator now has increased mobility, increased comfort and a decrease in weight, while minimally sacrificing armor coverage. The Spartan "Swimmers Cut" AR500 Body Armor, cut from genuine lab-certified Omega Armor, offers advanced Level III protection.
You have the choice of getting Spartan™ Omega™ AR500 Body Armor formed on a continual radius die or with their Advanced Triple Curve™ design. Instead of bending formed plates in 2 different locations, they have machined custom tooling to give these plates a nice curvature to best conform to the side of your torso. Spartan Armor Systems™ is proud to be the FIRST in the industry to commercially offer triple-curved AR500 body armor . Spartan Armor Systems’ ATC™ body armor allows the operator to shoulder their weapon with the most freedom and limited discomfort. The ATC™ armor better “hugs” the operator’s body, resulting in a significant increase in comfort.
Their CNC equipment capabilities have allowed them to form body armor without any “crease” bends. Crease bends, “work hardens” the plate and causes a significant amount of stress to the portion of the plate under load. We HIGHLY suggest when doing research to ask if they crease bend their body armor. This process results in increased potential for plate fatigue and failure, which is why Spartan Armor Systems™ has gone the extra mile to create this die process.
These plates come as a pair.
Full Coat or Base Coat Options:
Both sides of these plates are coated, however, the back side only has a “courtesy coat” to protect against wear and rust. The "Full Coat" option lines the front of the plate with 1/4-3/8" of their proprietary coating, Encapsaloc ™.
The base coat option has an extremely thin layer of fragmentation mitigation coating to aesthetically enhance the plates, and to provide corrosion resistance. This coating has minimal, if any, fragmentation mitigation capabilities.
Chest Plate Weight (per plate):
8x10 Plate: Base Coat 5lbs. Full Coat 5lbs 11oz.
10x12 Plate: Base Coat 7lbs 7oz. Full Coat 8lbs 1oz.
11x14 Plate: Base Coat 9lbs 2oz. Full Coat 10lbs 15oz.
