DFNDR Armor Plates (included)
We created this IcePlate EXO® Armor Package to make things super easy by including two of the exact same DFNDR Level IV rifle rated stand-alone body armor plates that we all run in our personal IcePlate EXO® plate carriers. Here are the specs from DFNDR Armor:
The DFNDR Armor® Rifle Rated Level IV system was developed to developed to defeat a single shot of 7.62×63 APM2 at muzzle velocity and multiple shots of light Armor Piercing ammunition such as the 7.62x39 API, the 5.56x45 M855 A1 and the 7.62x54R LPS threats. This system is NIJ Certified and also rated to defeat the 5.56x45 M855 (SS109) Green Tip, Mild Steel Core Chinese and PS Ball Russian 7.62x39 AK-47 threats and standard steel jacketed/lead core .308 and copper jacketed/lead core 7.62, .223 and 5.56 threats. Our Level IV rifle rated hard armor plates are designed with a multi-curve profile to provide an ergonomic and comfortable fitting armor system that is intended to wear against your body all day.
DFNDR Armor® Body Armor is equipped with a state-of-the-art Trauma Mitigation Base to minimize the energy of an impact dramatically. All threats specified are tested at muzzle velocity and are listed in the ‘threat profile’ table below which describes the rated ammunition this armor system will defeat.
The DFNDR Armor® Level IV system incorporates a Crystalline Ceramic Strike Face and Strike Core supported by our proprietary System Structural Reinforcement technology to enhance multi-hit ability. The backing support is engineered with the highest grade of ballistic materials; an ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) fiber, bound with a resin matrix to make it a hard stand-alone armor system and equipped with Spall-Tek to further reduce deflection of projectile fragments.
