External Body Armor IIIA 2 SAPI Plates Level III+STA

External Body Armor 3A 2 SAPI Plates Level III+STA

The External Body Armor IIIA 2 SAPI Plates Level III+STA is a Body Armor Vest for police and civilian uses.  For instance, this vest has Level IIIA protection panels, and outside frontal and back pockets to insert HDPE hard plates.

The External Body Armor IIIA 2 SAPI Plates Level III+STA is designed and manufactured for the best protection of the wearer while keeping it comfortable for wearing while on duty or during everyday activities. In addition, this vest comes with 2 HDPE plates level III+ (3 Plus). Allows for maximum versatility.

HDPE is known for its large strength-to-density ratio. The density of HDPE can range from 0.93 to 0.97 g/cm3 or 970 kg/m3. Although the density of HDPE is only marginally higher than that of low-density polyethylene, HDPE has little branching, giving it stronger intermolecular forces and tensile strength than LDPE.

Therefore, the difference in strength exceeds the difference in density, giving HDPE a higher specific strength. It is also harder and more opaque and can withstand somewhat higher temperatures (120 °C/ 248 °F for short periods). High-density polyethylene, unlike polypropylene, cannot withstand normally required autoclaving conditions.


      • The vest is assembled on the front and back parts making it possible to split. For instance, a flexible system of fixing by shoulder bands and waist flaps with Hook & loop fasteners.
      • The vest has 2 outer pockets, one on the front and one on the rear side of the vest for additional ballistic panels of full-face stand-alone level III+.
      • The design of the vest makes it possible to remove ballistic protection panels and hard plates for cleaning a vest.
