The DKX M3 (MAX III) Series ballistic plates are NIJ 0101.06 level III certified stand-alone. The M3 also stops special, non-armor piercing threats, such as the Winchester Ranger and 7.62×39 MSC. The positive buoyancy of the M3 plates provides users in waterborne or maritime environments added support and flotation, while a rigid polycarbonate backing gives superior blunt force trauma protection. Each DKX M3 Series plate comes equipped with Radio Frequency Embedded Verification (RFEV) tracking for inventory management along with an industry first 7 year warranty. Applies only to certified plate sizes.

The M3 polyethylene ballistic plate provides its protection by catching and stopping the projectile cold in its tracks. Unlike some other armor systems that rely on fragmenting or deflecting the projectile you are much less likely to have to deal with spalling of the projectile. Drop your M3 plate? No problem. Due to the plastic nature of polyethylene the M3 is drop proof.
