Protect yourself from all sides.

Our Type III+ shoulder plates are the perfect balance between weight and protection. SA3USH™ provides extended coverage to the upper body via the deltoid and covers the vital organs, protecting the operator from lateral impacts. Defend yourself from common handgun and rifle threats without sacrificing performance with these lightweight plates. Sold in pairs.


Our armor plates cover a wide range of ballistic threats from handguns to high-powered rifles – find which protection level suits your needs.

Level III+ means that being independently tested, as well as protecting from all threats included in the NIJ 0101.06 Level III (7.62×51 M80) and all threats from lower levels (22 LR; 38 Special; 357 Magnum; 9 mm; 9×18 mm Makarov, 7.62×25 mm Tokarev), these plates will prevent penetration from AK-47, AK-74, AKM rifle rounds such as 7.62×39 57-N-231 Steel Core FMJ, 5.45×39 7N6 Steel Core FMJ.


Unlike traditional solutions, our ballistic plates are designed to absorb the kinetic kick delivered from a bulled by engulphing the projectile and simultaneously eliminating ricochet. This means you can keep fighting even after taking multiple hits.


Your armor could save your life, so know it like the back of your hand. Utilizing a unique UHMWPE molding technique, our ballistic plates backbones are on the bleeding edge of body armor – ensuring maximum durability and protection with the lowest weight.

What is the advantage of SA3USH over steel armor plates?

The most significant advantage is the absence of ricochet, as it protects both the operator, their comrades, as well as the environment of the team from secondary damage and injuries. Also, the SA3USH is significantly lighter than any steel plate of comparable size.

What is the shelf life of armor plates?

Officially, 5 years.

The date is calculated from the manufacturing label on the back of the plate. While good maintenance and handling can preserve the plate ballistic capabilities for longer, we will only guarantee five years from manufacturing.

Do armor plates lose their protective properties after expiration?

Not instantly.

Due to chemical processes and oxidation occurring inside the composite material, the anti-ballistic capabilities of the armor plate will slowly deteriorate over time. After five years, we no longer guarantees the same level of protection and you should renew your plates as soon as possible.

How many hits can an armor plate withstand?

Armor plates are tested under the NIJ standard to withstand up to 6 consecutive hits. While that number can be greater, we can’t guarantee that result.

Is it possible to use an armor plate that has been hit by a bullet?

It is not recommended.

You may continue operations with a damaged armor plate due to composite materials that, when damaged, only a tight zone of the armor fails. Undamaged zones still offer ballistic protection. However, you will need to replace the armor plate after the mission as further use is prohibited.

Why is the weight of the armor important?

Especially over extended missions, every pound counts. Because the SA3USH is significantly lighter than the alternatives, that weight can be used for other types of gear such as ammo or med-packs, or serve to lighten the load in general and make the operator more agile and less fatigued over time. Finally, lighter gear reduces the medical impact of carrying heavy loads on the spine and lower back, reducing the chance of chronic pain and injury.

Is it NIJ Certified?

This product has been independently tested in NIJ-accredited laboratories according to the NIJ Standard 0101.06, as well as certified laboratories according to the DSTU 8782:2018. against Soviet/Russian ammunition.
