Hudi's Tactical Level 3 Super Light ballistic armor plates weigh only 3.7 pounds, which is half of typical ceramic based product with similar ballistic performance. Featuring a slim .75" profile and ergonomic curvature, it's extremely comfortable to wear all day.
We tested with 4 rounds of 5.56 M193, 2 rounds of 5.56 Hollow Points, and 2 rounds of 7.62 M80, none penetrated from 15 yards. The only significant back face deformation is when the 7.62 rounds hit 1" from each other, the deformation in the clay was about 1" deep, where as M193 only made 1/3" dent. All 5.56 rounds were captured within the first ~1/2 depths of the plate and the 2nd 7.62 left ~1/4 of the fiber unbroken. This shows that the plate conforms with Level III guidance.
We were curious if this would qualify for Level III+ and proceeded to test with 2 rounds of 5.56 M855 (green tip). Both penetrated the plate and made a 2" hole in the clay, but stopped on the wooden plank behind the clay and only made a 1/4" of a dent, which shows that most of the energy has dissipated.
These plates are the most cost effective options available anywhere, and are comparable to the lightest plates out there.
