Smith Defense's new AR550 Body Armor Plates feature not only an independently tested and verified threat-protection system to NIJ Level III+ standards, their multi-curve design also offer the most ergonomic fit and comfort for long days on duty or at the range. Each plate offers industry-leading protection against all common rifle threats, as well as the most advanced spall-resistant coating available on the market today. While other manufacturers plates may be limited to single-shot spall protections, Smith Defense offers each end-user the peace of mind that comes with knowing their plates can stop multiple impacts without the worry of fragmentation or bullet spalling leading to secondary wounds. 

Specifically designed Shooter's Cut plates give the wearer free range of motion without giving up any vital organ protection. Protection isn't just about stopping bullets, it's also about giving you the ability to fight back, and keep you mobile to get out of harms way. That's why each plate is designed to be the most comfortable, least restrictive, and lightest weight armor system available on the market today, without ever compromising strength and quality.
