|Introducing the (1 lb) Dupont
tm Kevlar ® based
Often times on a
Military front (ie.
back at base), when its a lower military threat level the ultra light SAPI Shield tm can
come in handy. This may be when the weight/drag of a couple
of 12 Lb level IV ceramic SAPI chest and back plate(s)
aren't needed. Two standard ceramic SAPI plates (front and
back) weigh in at around 24 LBS (ugh!). The ultra light (~1 Lb.)
stiffened Dupont Kevlar tm based SAPI Shield tm is
perfect stiffened level IIIA body armour and fits perfect in your
SAPI plate carrier.
it cannot completely stop a close range (5 meters) 7.62 mm round, it
only weighs 1 Lb (rather than 12 or 22 pounds) and there are many
occaisons when the threat level around you is low enough that the level IIIA bullet resistance
protection of the SAPI Shield tm is
just fine. Its better than a bullet
proof vest as they pocket in when hit. The SAPI Shield tm is
a lot stiffer, less likely to pocket in when hit with bullets and
shrapnel/mortor flak. (see photos
below - made in USA)
No Ball-Peen hammer penetration effect with the SAPI SHEILD tm from any level IIIA impact. The
SAPI Shield tm from BACKPACKSHIELD tm is "stiffer" and
not a loose multi
layer vest style fabric insert. Loose fabric based
"bullet proof vest like" padded inserts are more subject to deeper
impact and have much more cave-in pocketing (shrinking
protection) effect when they are hit.
