Design Philosophy

We believe hard armor should defend against all common rifles, pistols and shotguns.

All hard armor plates should have standalone multi-hit protection against the most prolific projectiles fired from the most prolific "domestic style" small arms.

Carriers without additional mitigation are the most common use of the armor inserts, so  "standalone by default" is the appropriate way for professionals to service clients.

These must all be stopped:.
