Level IIIA (3A) Pistol Body Armor and Plates

Pistols are some of the most common sidearms for military, law enforcement, and American gun carriers alike. Pistol body armor protects vital organs in the upper body from the pistol rounds of the enemy. Law enforcement, military personnel, and even civilians rely on body armor rated for pistol ammunition to protect their lives during high-intensity, unpredictable scenarios. It’s important for operators to select pistol plates based on ammunition type, size, and what military grade materials are needed to complete mission objectives casualty-free.

The pistol plates and body armor offered at Chase Tactical all meet or exceed the National Institute of Justice (NIJ) Level IIIA Standard-0101.06 for ballistic resistance. Our selection of standalone plates come in sizes from 5″ x 10″ to 10″ x 12″ and are constructed with .3″ to .34″ of military grade ceramics, steels, and high-density polyethylene. Outfit your pistol body armor a wide selection of multi-curve and single-curve NIJ Standard-0101.06 Certified and DEA compliant pistol plates and carrier systems from the company you know and trust for protection – Chase Tactical.

Level 3A Pistol Body Armor Features & Benefits

While the pistol body armor’s main benefit is saving lives, it can do more than just stop a bullet.

  • Simple to Use – Slide your plates into body armor that adapts easily to uniforms, plainclothes, and other carry equipment
  • Customization – Armor carriers are capable of housing many different types of plates
  • Affordability – Even if your plates take a hit, replacing them is surprisingly affordable
  • Accessibility – Most armor vests and rigs allow you to maintain storage and accessories alongside your plates

The NIJ recommends Level IIIA (3A) body armor for protection against pistol rounds. Chase Tactical armor comes in multi and single curve plate forms that meet NIJ-0101.06 Level IIIA certification standards.

Operators of all kinds trust multi-curve Level IIIA (3A) body armor because the design allows the plate to adjust to the chest more naturally, which provides the carrier with additional comfort and superior protection. Single-curve Level IIIA (3A) plates lay flatter on the chest and are recommended for missions that require less movement.
