SAM™ Stomach Armor Module


Protect your stomach and everything around it from bullets and shrapnel while providing even more space for your modular gear

With a 12% increase in coverage and ideal integration with any plate carrier, the SAM™ protects your stomach area against shrapnel, frag, and handgun ammo from the front and even expands your space for modular gear.

Adapt To Your Environment

Our soft armor panels cover a wide range of ballistic threats from handguns to explosive fragmentation – find which protection level suits your needs.

Stay Effective

Designs to facilitate strenuous physical activity, our addition armor modules allow you to stay protected without sacrificing mobility. Despite its positioning, this module causes minimal interference with rifle handling – eliminating a lengthy learning curve.

Fast Installation

A secure Velcro mounting system allows for rapid adding or removing of individual armor modules, even when the vest is being worn. Not only can you easily enhance your protection level, but also ditch quickly additional armor when maximum mobility is required.

Increase Your Coverage

You never know where your enemy’s bullet or blast fragments will impact, so protect yourself from all angles. Stomach Armor provides your lungs additional ballistic protection – especially critical while in the Prone position.

Materials Matter

We follow MIL-SPEC standards to ensure uncompromising functionality, durability, and longevity in combat conditions. Our products are built to last – manufactured with a quality you can rely upon.


NIR (near-infrared) materials significantly reduce your detectable heat signature, aiding in camouflage from enemy night visioning systems. Blend into your environment and safely execute your mission without being detected.

Fits fairly well - retained by velcro but there is enough to stay put in most scenarios - I imagine even in combat, though I have not stress tested that thoroughly yet.

Looks great - I like the increase of coverage. However, the zipper that allows the soft armor insert is (way) to small. Had to fold the armor over twice and cram it in to get it to fit. The insert slot needs to be bigger.

I waited on this for six weeks and almost gave up. The attachment is good, but the delivery time could be better.


Is it possible to install this product on a non-UARM™ Vest?

Connections are developed for universal application. These modules can be attached to any overt ballistic vest or plate carrier. But, to ensure ideal performance we using UARM™ gear.

Is it possible to upgrade or exchange the protection level I already use?

The module uses a stiff zipper to allow for exchanging the ballistic plates inside. This same procedure is performed after the soft armor’s expiration date.

What is the shelf life of this module?

For armor inserts, it is officially 5 years. For the module itself, there is a 1-year warranty.
The date is calculated from the manufacturing label on the back of the insert. While good maintenance and handling can preserve the plate ballistic capabilities for longer, we will only guarantee five years from manufacturing.
The rest of the module is made from extremely durable materials. Due to the tasks that you might encounter when using it the warranty is for one year. But, with good maintenance, it can last for a very long time.

Is it possible to only use a single item from the set?

Each element from the FAS™ set can be used independently and be modular with gear from any high-quality manufacturer.

How will this impact my comfort and movement?


The whole FAS™ Full Armor System weighs as a single steel armor plate and is perfectly distributed around the body and ergonomic. The SAM™ itself weighs less than 10 ounces and is perfectly balanced around the body.
This balance, combined with good ventilation, makes the set comfortable in any environment.

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 NATO STANAG 2920 (V50 fragmentation) and DSTU 8782:2018 against Soviet/Russian ammunition.
