Changing threats require a new level of preparation. Soft armor ballistic protection is a realistic consideration. These Level IIIA soft armor protection panels can be used in a wide variety of bag shapes and sizes. That means you can discreetly plan for any situation you may face.
Previously sold as V-Armor, exclusively for Vertx Bags, our Stealth Operator Protection Panels now come in a variety of sizes appropriate to most common bag types, without losing the exceptional fit for Vertx Bags. These soft armor protection panels are designed with the intent that they can be used as a shield between the user and ballistic threats and are what Law Enforcement refer to as Level IIIA handgun protection. They are made from the same ballistic materials officers wear daily as a part of their uniform and are designed to be discreet and practical.

NIJ Tested & Certified

Stealth Operator Protection Panels are NIJ 0101.6 certified to Level IIIA, the highest level of handgun protection, which includes:

  • .44 MAG
  • .357 SIG

  • In addition to the NIJ listed ammunition rounds, our soft armor protection panels are also separately tested to protect against:

  • FN SS197
  • Win SXT 9mm+P+
  • 7.62x25 Tokarev
  • Speer GD .357 MAG and
  • 2, 4, 16, and 17 gr. RCC

  • *This product does not provide protection against rifle threats.
    *Fit and appropriate use is solely up to the discretion of the user. Body armor is legal to own in all 50 states (but we can not ship it to the state of Connecticut).
    *It is the responsibility of the buyer to ascertain whether or not they are legally able to purchase and use body armor in their city and or state. The seller assumes no responsibility for the actions of the buyer.
    *NO ARMOR IS BULLET PROOF! Different armor models are meant to protect against specific types of ammunition. No body armor will stop every threat. Units should select armor designed to protect against the threats most likely to be faced by their team. At a minimum, armor should be selected that will protect against handguns.
