KNOW ABOUT Level IV Armor Plates

Level IV ICW UP-Armor Plates

Made to wear on the upper body for personal protection against armor-piercing (AP) rounds, Ace Link Armor’s level IV body armor plates are quality composite armor utilizing the highest grades of Ultra High Molecular Weight (UHMW) Polyethylene layers of backing, enhanced by silicon carbide ceramic on the strike face of the plate structure weighing in at 6 lbs.

Pure metal versions were used during the medieval period and modern versions of body armor and plates are still widely used today by civilians, police officers, and military forces all over the world to protect themselves against gunfire. However, it’s important to note that modern technology offers body armor solutions that are much lighter than steel plates.These level IV plates are of the highest level of body armor and personal protection out there on the market.

Level 4 SA Hard Armor Plate
Level 4 Body Armor ICW Up Armor Plate
It’s always difficult to rate armor on the most important aspect of body armor. Stopping the rounds they say they are rated to stop is not something 99% of armor owners hope to never really test for themselves. So maybe the most important aspect of buying armor is trusting the company that makes this life saving gear. That being said, I wholeheartedly trust Ace Link Armor. After doing some research and speaking with the team over at Ace Link Armor I decided to go with the Level IV ceramic rifle plates. They use the same manufacturing process as industry leaders, using highest grades of Ultra High Molecular Weight (UHMW) Polyethylene layers of backing, enhanced by silicon carbide ceramic on the strike face offering true multi-hit, edge to edge protection. All while meeting NIJ standards, weighing in at 6 lbs, and sold at a great price point compared to the competition. The multicurve design is extremely comfortable for extended wear. Simply put, these plates are a high-quality option for professionals or civilians that are serious about their personal protection.

Level 4 Body Armor ICW Up Armor Plate
These side plates shipped relatively quick. They came packaged in ample protection, no damage. I like the cover that comes on the plate too. They’re a little thick but not as thick as some I’ve seen. They fit my plate bag snuggly and have a contour that hugs me when I wear them. They’re relatively light weight and they offer level IV protection. One side benefit is that Ace link partnered with zip so I could buy now and pay installments, which is nice. With any luck I won’t have to come back to write another review on how they saved my life, but if they did, I would. Overall these were a solid purchase, I’m very pleased.

When it comes to protection level I V stand alone. This one stops A Wide range of calibers and armor piercing rounds I am very glad that I had made this choice there are a lot out there that claim that their product is better in my opinion it’s possible but highly unlikely bowl to have a fit and comfort for dragging around a ton of weight keeping yourself small as possible in any confrontation is best and being multi hit now that’s where the decisions being made

Honestly I’ve had level 4 plates before the weight was unbearable, when I saw this Ace Link Armor I hesitated, I started to dig more into it. So I pulled the trigger. Wow, I’m floored at the difference in weight. You also get a copy of the Ballistics Resistance Test. Very well made product.

Fits great and makes my carrier so much more comfortable to wear. I'm going on faith that it's Level IV as I haven't been (or plan on being) shot. If you see me on the news shot dead with my plates on, then make sure you change this to a 1 star 🙂
