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.
The new Vortex body armor offers users the combined characteristics of strength, comfort, and performance that Kevlar brand products have been delivering for decades. Vortex armor comes standard with a Revolution carrier and a 5″ x 8″ Ara-Shock ICW armor plate.
The Vortex consists of 100% Dupont Kevlar brand fibers using Armor Express’ Comfort Craft stitching technique.
