The World's First and Only 4lb, Level IV Plate!

The new multi-curve STRATIS Level IV Enhanced plates are unlike anything on the market. They are composed of a tiled composite strike face and a polyethylene core, making them not only multi-hit rated but ultralightweight at only 4.4 pounds.

The new STRATIS Level IV Enhanced plates are setting a new standard in level IV protection. The tiled composite strike-face contains cracks close to the point of impact.  Traditional solid strike face level IV plates can only be shot once before the integrity of the plate becomes compromised. Premier Body Armor’s tiled composite strike face is made of a proprietary blend of compounds particularly effective at both flattening and slowing the spin of the bullet before it reaches the polyethylene core.  As with all our armor solutions, the STRATIS Level IV plates are 100% made in the U.S.A.

      Great Plates!

      I recently ordered two STRATIS Level IV Enhanced Plates for myself and two for my wife. Soon afterward, we had the occasion to wear them at an event for four hours. The plates are great! They are so lightweight that neither my wife nor I had any problem during the event or afterward. And the two of us are seniors! If you are looking for first-rate AND lightweight protection against rifle rounds, my wife and I recommend that you invest in STRATIS Level IV Enhanced Plates!


      I couldn't imagine having gone with steel plates after putting these into to core carrier. Happy I spent the extra money on these.

      The plates seem sturdy and well made. From all outward appearances they look great and are light but feel solid. Fortunately I have not had the opportunity to find out if they will do the job that I bought them for.

      I’m a big guy, 280. These plates are super comfortable. All day use. Fit me well, as well being light weight. Very impressed with this product.
