The spall stopper Deluxe These 5X8"
BULLETPROOF INSERT soft inserts are stand-alone level IIIA Re Purposed vest
plates PRICE is for 1 PLATE, PLATE BACKER 5X8" insert` These 5X8 soft insert
arestand alone level IIIA
and milstd fragmentation rated construction. Great for handgun and frag
protection in any plate carrier with 6x8 pockets. And if worn in your IIIA vest
they will stop all IIIA rounds as you will have IIIA armor behind level IIIA
armor, plus 9mmAP, 7.62x25, 5.7x28, .454casull, .50AE and other specialty
pistol rounds and provide up to 40% blunt trauma reduction. Besides being
light, about 13 ounces, these inserts are soft, flexible and comfortable and
just over 1/4" thick. They are made of the best ballistics in the world; Kevlar
andGoldflex with Spectra for really good stopping power for fragments and
point blank shots (such as .44 magnum) and are thinner and lighter than
standard Kevlar. A mix of these 3 materials gives better protection than any
single fabric insert. And these are perfect if you use SAPI plates in your
plate carrier (nearly all SAPI plates are in conjunction plates, meaning they
have to have IIIA armor behind them to provide their rated protection. If
stand alone" isn't marked on your SAPI then it needs soft armor behind it, and
this includes military platesSpall is when a bullet explodes into tiny
fragments when hitting a steel plate at near a perpendicular degree angle.
Ricochet is when pieces, or even the whole bullet deflect off a steel plate
when hitting at a sharper angle. These soft inserts are designed to go
in your plate pockets IN FRONT of steel SAPI plates to mostly eliminate
spall and reduce ricochets . They stop the bullet fragments exploding off
after hitting the steel to keep them from hitting you or your nearby
buddy. Front plates are particularly dangerous because of being close to
your carotid artery. All steel plates are prone to this problem, and rubber
coatings (linex, rhinolining etc) do not do much after the 1st shot. And edge
protection only stops spall from shots right at the edge, and can't stop
richocets or high angle spall.
This is a video someone made using only 2 layers of Kevlar:
The Level IIIA is a special threat armor package offering dual performance
tested to the NIJ Standard-0101.04 and the FBI 2.0 Protocol. .357 SIG SPEER 125

9 mm FMJ at ~1,400 fps
44 Magnum Semi-Jacketed Hollow Point at ~1,400 fps
427 mps). The highest blunt trauma protection rating in soft body armor.
The best for very high-risk situations to cover more of the uncommon or unusual
Minimizes blunt trauma injury to allow more effective return fire.
To see just what old kevlar can do watch this video I found on youtube
11-Year-Old Vest Shootout
alt="11-Year-Old Vest - Front" height="404" width="340">
We shot an 11-Year-Old, Level II Vest with four, 9 mm rounds, plus '00'
Buckshot, all from 24" (61 cm).
The deepest penetration was 9 layers of Kevlar® – not even halfway through!
The 9 mm bullets penetrated 5, 6, 8 and 9 layers – out of 20 layers total!
Most of the '00' Buckshot is still on top of the vest
