VISM Level III PE Hard Ballistic Plate
Hard Armor panels are great for increased protection, used by modern militaries, police, and civilians, hard armor plates comprised of Ceramic, Steel, Titanium, and other Composite armor panels are used widely in modern shell vests, plate carriers, and bags. Not all hard panels have a spall liner, but in the case of impact from a projectile, a spall liner is designed to catch or deflect the jacket from the projectile on impact. This in turn reduces the possibility of shrapnel injuries. Hard Armor panels typically made with ceramics, are lighter weight, and plates made from steel are heavier. The trade-off between mobility and protection is worth it!
