Predator Armor Level III+ Plate Carrier Package

Including both the company’s Minuteman plate carrier and a pair of 1/4"-thick, 10"x12" armor plates, the Predator Armor Level III+ Plate Carrier Package provides a turnkey body-armor solution.

Designed to exceed the National Institute of Justice’s 0101.06 Level III ballistic-resistance standard, the bundle’s two curved, shooter’s-cut, tempered-steel plates have a Brinell hardness rating of 650 and weigh approximately 7 lbs., 8 ozs., each. The plates can also be ordered wrapped in Kevlar to help them resist both fragmentation and spalling upon impact.

The 500-denier Minuteman carrier features adjustable shoulder and waist straps, removable shoulder pads, a rear drag handle, numerous rows of both hook-and-loop and MOLLE-style webbing, and it is available in Black, Coyote and MultiCam. The suggested retail price on the Predator Armor Minuteman package starts at $299. For more information, visit
