Following up on our earlier post about the Razor armor, Armor Express has also released the Vortex™ Body Armor and the ARA-Shock ICW Plates.
The Vortex is a Level IIIA armor that at only 1.12 lbs and .21″ thick, weighing 10% less than a Quantum panel and 7% less than a Halo, but can still pass a V50-.44 at 1651 ft/s with only a 37.1mm back face signature (44mm is allowed).
The Vortex, Razor and the ICW plates are all available at On Duty Gear, provided you are a First Responder or Military personnel.
