SOFT ARMOUR

The SOLO Soft Armour Solution utilises the very latest, ballistic-resistant materials to offer users a low weight, low bulk insert (less than 6.5mm thick), whilst providing improved levels of protection than other systems on the market today.

The SOLO Soft Armour Solution is rated to NIJ Level IIIA, protecting the user from 9mm FMJ ammunition fired from handguns and sub machine guns such as the MP5 weapon.

In addition, the armour will stop .45 ACP, .44 Magnum & .357 Magnum ammunition at high velocities, plus the Eastern European threats of 7.62 x 25 FMJ Tokarev and 9 x 18 Makarov FMJ.

Blunt trauma is defined as the indentation of the soft body armour at the body-side area when it is impacted with a projectile.

Whilst the NIJ standard permits a blunt trauma maximum of 44mm, this could lead to injuries such as broken ribs.

The SOLO Soft Armour Solution out-performs this standard, with results in the region of just 24mm for the 9mm threat.

In addition to ballistic performance, the SOLO Soft Armour Solution provides high levels of fragmentation protection and is V50 rated at 605 m/s when tested against 1.1g steel fragment simulating projectiles in accordance with the NATO standard STANAG 2920.

The SOLO Soft Armour Solution also retains its ballistic protection performance in extremes of temperature and has been tested in extreme conditions of -35°C up to +65°C, ensuring our customers can use the vests in a range of climates and environments with the assurance that protection levels are maintained.

The SOLO Soft Armour Solution is wrapped in a special, sealed envelope to protect it from damp conditions or waterborne operations.  We have also developed the armour to offer neutral buoyancy in water.
