Exposed Armor Plates: good or bad? Here is the scientific and engineering truth behind exposed armor plates

DFNDR Armor Plates

Pairing armor with the correct plate carrier can be complicated and confusing. We created this ICEPLATE EXO® Gen 3 Armor Package to make things easy. Each package includes two of the exact same DFNDR Armor Level III+ C or Level IV rifle rated stand-alone body armor plates that we all run in our personal ICEPLATE EXO® Gen 3 plate carriers here at the shop. Here are the specs from DFNDR Armor:

DFNDR Armor Level III+ C rifle rated hard armor plates are independently tested to NIJ protocol 0101.06. 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 (and conforms perfectly with ICEPLATE® Curve). Lightweight to reduce fatigue, DFNDR Armor® Rifle Rated 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.

DFNDR Armor® is engineered with the highest grade of ballistic materials; Fiber-Lite Laminate, an ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) bound with a resin matrix to make it a hard stand-alone armor system and equipped with Spall-Tek to further reduce spall and deflection of projectile fragments. These Level III+ C hard armor plates fit perfectly inside ICEPLATE EXO® Gen 3. 

  • Proudly Made in the USA
  • Multi-Hit Protection
  • 1.1 Inches Thick
  • Stand-Alone System
  • Weight:
    • Level III+ C 3.1 pounds per armor plate
    • Level IV 5.8 pounds per armor plate
    • RF1 Elite 2.09 pounds per armor plate
  • Dimensions: 9.5" x 12.5" x 1.1"
For best results, we strongly recommend running an ICEPLATE® MOLLE Sleeve Pro (option above) for cooling/heating/hydration, as ICEPLATE EXO® Gen 3 is optimally designed to conform to Medium ESAPIs-shaped hard armor plates like these DFNDR Level III+ C stand-alone hard armor plates for the thinnest, lowest-profile plate carrier hydration system available today.


Side SAPI Armor Plates

The AXL Equinox Cummerbund option is compatible with SAPI side armor plates. We recommend using the DFNDR QRC 6x6 Side Plate Pouch Set.


Sizing, Armor Plate Compatibility

ICEPLATE EXO® Gen 3 is optimized to work with ICEPLATE Curve® for conformal fit with a Medium ESAPI plate profile. Armor plates with the following dimensions will fit:
  • 9.5" x 12.5" up to 1.1" for Medium ESAPI armor plate profiles.
  • 10" x 12" up to 0.75" thick for Medium SAPI plate profiles.
