Female Body Armour
Armourer's Choice embarked on a mission to build the most comfortable, lightest and highest performing female torso plate on the market.
Decrease employee discomfort and increase employee satisfaction by providing them equipment that is fitted properly.
Our Body Armour comes in a variety of shapes to meet any tactical need.
The plates are available in single and multi-curve geometries.
What happens when a plate is shot?
When a ballistic event happens, it creates a conoid of roughly 65 degrees, generating a microfracture structure which inherently powders/shards and some material ejects from the small hole created from the impactor. This event creates both static and dynamic deformations which are translated to the body as blunt force trauma instead of bullet penetration. This elastic or dynamic deformation is what is measured to meet the National Institute of Justice Standards for ballistic resistance and must not exceed 44 mm of deformation.
