*Ultra-Light Strike Plates* Advanced lightweight bulletproof armor plate inserts for bulletproof vests weigh only 3.4 lbs/1.5 kg (each plate). Certified NIJ Level III used (in conjunction with NIJ IIIA). This is an ultra-light ballistic hard armor that is lighter than almost any other bullet proof material available in the world.
