What is Body Armor?

Body armor and body armor plates are protective pieces of wearable equipment designed to defeat handgun and rifle rounds. While body armor is mainly thought of as body armor plates or bulletproof vests, it also covers a wide range of safety equipment that can cover many different parts of the body for additional protection.

Typically, body armor has been known to protect military personnel, but today it is also used by various types of law enforcement, security guards and law-abiding civilians as well.

Whether you’re deciding on the sizing of body armor plates and plate carrier, to the type of ballistic helmet, soft armor, mag pouches, etc., you need, RMA Armament is your one stop source for the proper body armor protection – armor plates proudly made in the USA!

If you have any questions on our body armor products and accessories, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us and ask. If you work in law enforcement, we have a police guide to body armor designed specifically for you, which will answer questions about the type of body armor you’ll need – soft body armor, armor plate inserts, or other accessories to complete your plate carrier loadout.

You open up RMA’s web store and see over 20 armor plate models across five different ballistic levels. A pretty daunting task, right?
