These plates may have the most impressive ballistic performance against APM2 and backface deformation period! With threats always changing, flexibility and modular ballistic capability is imperative to survivability.

“The Enhanced Small Arms Protective Insert” is manufactured from a ceramic core backed with a high performance composite layered fiber. We finish our ESAPI Plates in blue for identification purposes and so you know you are wearing the best.
