Here at Atomic Defense, our goal is to provide you with the highest quality bulletproof inserts for your needs. Whether you or your employees are police officers or law enforcement officers who need life-saving protection for every day on the job or you are a civilian who wants to be prepared for any sort of emergency, our bulletproof armor plates and insert-able panels are the right tool for saving your life.
Body armor must comply with National Institute of Justice (NIJ) standards. NIJ standard 0101.06 describes multiple levels of body armor. Each level offers greater ballistic protection than the last.
The NIJ considers how equipment responds to specific ammunition at different speeds. Soft body armor falls into NIJ Levels I, IIA, II and IIIA. Hard body armor is either NIJ Level III or IV. Atomic Defense offers both soft and hard body armor plates.
The Stand Alone armor plates available through Atomic Defense all hold certification for NIJ Level IIIA or higher. We believe Level IIIA is the lowest any customer should go if they want true ballistic protection. We test our bulletproof plates to meet and exceed the NIJ's expectations for IIIA, III and IV armor. The NIJ's expectations are:
Here is a chart highlighting how our bulletproof plates hold up against various common weapons and calibers:
We don’t settle for slapping the bulletproof label on our products without extensive testing. We know the abilities of our panels and know that you’ll be satisfied with the level of protection they offer you. Our testers fire additional rounds into each bulletproof insert model to ensure performance that exceeds the NIJ's standards. Some of the specific guns and bullets our products can stop include:
Even our least-expensive armor will stop 12 gauge slugs and buckshot. Our armor can stop hunting rifles, assault rifles, pistols, and high-powered sniper rifles. Our bulletproof panels are tested beyond NIJ standards and can block various pistol, assault rifle, and sniper rounds.
Whether you want to put one in your child’s backpack or use them in bulletproof vests for military use, we’re confident you’ll stay safe. Our high-quality bulletproof inserts are also lighter and more affordable than other inserts in the market, making them a great option for anyone looking to be prepared and have extra protection.
Like every piece of equipment we sell, our bulletproof hard body inserts provide reliable ballistic protection. What makes inserts unique is that they put you in control of your safety. Our plates are as versatile as they are durable, so use them in a way that fits the situation.
Many customers use our ballistics plates with bulletproof plate carriers that feature numerous insert pockets. You can load your vest with more plates to prioritize protection or fewer plates in precise locations for greater mobility. You can also use these plates to line your backpack or purse with ballistics protection. Our strong, lightweight body armor inserts are ready to use in a way that works best for you.

11/10! The small touches made such a big impact, like the patch, stickers and jolly ranchers were something I am beyond grateful for! Amazing product! Great price, very much satisfied.

This is a solid concept and well built. My 7yr old is fine with the extra weight and likes the backpack deign. My only feedback would be to have the plate in a more heavy duty pocket so it doesn't move around so easily when child is in motion/running
Worked great & a great buy. A little pricey, but worth the money. I didn’t miss a beat while firing or working the range, and I got a lot of compliments too.
Great buy, worked great and got a lot of compliments on them.
Worked great while on the range while firing and while working on the range, didn’t miss a single word or order put out around me.
Fast delivery. Definitely worth the upgrade from my Sordins. Even got a free coffee cup!
So far the light is great. Brighter than a few arisakas and surefire I have. At first I was iffy about not having a pressure pad, but found out it is easy to manipulate while using my normal grip. I like how the switch is easy to turn on while using minimal pressure. So far so good, seems like a solid light. I'll be testing this weekend to see how it will hold up. I have a 12.5 308 that I have it on, and ready to see how it will withstand.
Product was as described. Appears to be good quality. Fast shipping. Highly recommend!
The fit and prompt service were spot on
I reviewed several videos from outside sources on this helmet and was impressed by how well it stood up to the ballistic testing. Also the fit and finish was good.Hopefully I’ll never have to use this for defensive purposes.
Perfect fit....Great padding better than my other 2 helmets....love the super high cut and the BOA system..
Found the carrier I was looking for in stock. Shipping was fast.
Delivered on time. It was as described - but way heavier and thicker than I imagined. Have to get a bigger backpack in order for it to fit with books, ect...
The box when arrived was shredded - super surprised it was delivered - but it made it.
Very fast shipping on atomic defenses part and excellent service
Good gear, fast and as advertised.
On a full time team I **** wearing glasses under ear pro so I ditched the eye pro until I got these. Came right on time and atomic defense was more then helpful in getting this package to me.
