BAO Tactical Pax Level II 10x12 Shooter's Cut Plate Backer
Complies with NIJ Standard-0101.06 for Ballistic Resistance of Body Armor.
The BAO Tactical Pak ballistic panel plate backer is thinner and lighter than Level IIIA plate backers, but with most of the same stopping power. This item can be used by itself as level II protection or used as a hard armor plate backer. Some have even put the ballistic panels in front of steel level llI plates to help with spalling and ricochet. These are tested to comply with the latest NIJ .06 standard and have exceeded it.
Many others are selling similar panels for more money and have not had them tested by a NIJ certified lab so be careful who you buy from. These are a reputable brand, having undergone legitimate testing, and are a superb product all around.
