The NIJ certified DKX Max III Plates feature a 10″ x 12″ shooters-cut or square-cut design that weighs in at just 2.9 lbs. and is +/- 1.1″ in thinness, with unmatched features that make the DKX Max III plates the most comfortable armor plates to wear. Made of 100% Dyneema ballistic material with a poly-carbonate back skin in a proprietary press and manufacturing process, the DKX Max III plates tested higher than minimum NIJ test standards. Along with an industry exceeding 7-year warranty, the DKX plates incorporate a Radio Frequency Embedded Verification (RFEV) that provides each plate an individual identification for inventory control and life cycle management.
The DKX Max IIIA 10″ x 12″shooters-cut plates weigh just one pound and are approximately ¼-inch in thinness. Max IIIA plates are capable of stopping 00 buckshot, .44 magnum rounds, FN 57 rounds and most of the new lightweight, high velocity rounds that defeat soft armor, including edged weapons. These Special Threat plates are built in smaller sizes for added chest ballistic protection. The DKX IIIA plates are made from 100% Dyneema ballistic material, perfect when mated with the CSE Low Profile Carrier.
