What Rounds Will Level 4 Body Armor Defeat?

According to National Institute of Justice compliance standards, level 4 body armor plates are required to defeat one 7.62×63 (30.06) M2AP round with a backface deformation of 44mm or less. In RMA’s independent testing, the model 1155 level 4 armor plate defeats between 2-3 of those rounds (depending on shot placement), while passing back face deformation requirements as well.

Each of RMA’s level 4 body armor plates are tested at NIJ approved testing laboratories, like Oregon Ballistics Lab (OBL), NTS-Wichita or others and our official test reports are listed available for anyone to see.

There are also many independent tests done on all of RMA’s Level 4 body armor plates which can been seen on RMA’s Youtube page. Or you can search Youtube for “RMA Armament Level 4 Body Armor” and see a large amount of independent tests and reviews of our armor.

RMA’s level 4 body armor plates can also defeat a wide array of other common rifle rounds such as m855a1, m855 green tip, 7.62x54r, m80 NATO, 7.62.39 msc and much more. Please see our Body Armor Ballistics Chart for a more basic representation of body armor ballistic standards.

You also may be wondering what can penetrate level 4 body armor as well? One of the most common rounds we get asked about is a .50 cal. Currently, the NIJ 0101.06/07 standard does not list .50 BMG as a test round – though in independent testing, our model 1189 level 4 body armor plate has stopped a .50 BMG from 100 yards. Here’s the evidence! It’s important to note that the plate held the round, the back face deformation and energy transfer would still be enough to kill you. Our advice? Don’t get shot by a .50 cal.

Can Civilians Own Level 4 Body Armor?

Absolutely. We sell Level 4 body armor to all law-abiding U.S. citizens, Law Enforcement Officers, First Responders, member of the Military, etc. There is only one exception. Because of state laws, Connecticut does not allow online sales of body armor. While it is legal to own armor in Connecticut as a civilian, purchasing it must be a face to face transaction.

It’s possible that more states will implement laws restricting body armor in the future, so it’s your job to know your state’s law’s regarding body armor.

However, it is illegal for any felon to own body armor in the United States.

How is Level 4 Body Armor Made?

Level 4 body armor is the highest level of body armor on the market, built to be the most rugged armor among all the levels. As such, the main components of all level 4 body armor is a ceramic strike face and a composite backer. But that’s where plates diverge between companies.

RMA builds its NIJ .06 certified 1155 level 4 armor plates with an alumina oxide ceramic strike face and a polyethylene composite backer. The ceramic serves to break apart the armor piercing rounds, which allows the composite backer to act as a catcher’s mitt and catch the remaining bullet fragments and reduce the energy impact transferred to the body.

As level 4 body armor goes up in price, it’s because it’s built with lighter weight ceramic (either silicon carbide or boron carbide) and a lighter polyethylene material used for a backer. Typically, the lighter the material, the more expensive it is. Please see the “Details” section on each of our product pages to see the materials RMA utilizes to manufacture them.

What Happens if I Drop My Level 4 Body Armor?

If you happen to drop your level 4 body armor, train with it, or are one of those guys who toss your rig around after you take it off, your armor from RMA should be just fine.

RMA’s level 4 body armor plates are built with a protective padding on the strike face to aid in the protection of the ceramic, ensuring it doesn’t crack under normal use. However, we do suggest that you take care of your armor as best you can, to ensure it performs to its highest level of protection.

What Size Body Armor Do I Need?

You can figure out what size body armor plate you need with a tape measure. You want the armor plate width to be just inside your nipples. As far as the height of the body armor is concerned, you want to measure from the top of the sternum down to one or two inches above the belly button – when you are sitting down, relaxed.

A majority (75-80%) of people wear a 10×12 or a multi-curve medium.

Can I leave RMA Body Armor in My Car?

One of the most common body armor questions we get is in regards to our body armor’s temperature sensitivity. Simply put, RMA’s body armor will continue to work as intended in just about any temperature environment. During NIJ .06 certification testing, each plate is left in a temperature chamber for two weeks, where the temperature changes periodically, from temperatures as low as 5 degrees fahrenheit to a high of 194 degrees. The varying temperature changes over those two weeks ensure that the materials used in building armor plates can maintain their form and function. The temperature test is done on each test before it is ballistically tested for compliance.

So can you leave your RMA body armor in the trunk of your car in Texas, Florida, etc and rely on it to perform? Simply put. Yes.



**United States law restricts possession of body armor for convicted felons. Many U.S. states also have penalties for possession or use of body armor by felons. RMA Armament, Inc., is also unable to ship any body armor plates, Shields, etc. to the state of Connecticut. By purchasing body armor from RMA Armament, Inc., you are certifying that you have not been convicted of any crime that would restrict you from being able to purchase or possess body armor under any Federal or State laws. Furthermore, you are acknowledging that you do not intend to use the body armor for any criminal purpose. RMA Armament, Inc., does reserve the right to refuse to sell body armor to any person.

    great price and shipped fast, just wish they had multi curve

  17. Jordan (verified owner)

    Got my plates in a very timely fashion and without any issues. They were a very tight fit for my flak but after a little finessing they fit nice and snug and the pocket. they are much lighter than my old steel plates that i replaced them with. A well priced and quality product.

  18. Evan (verified owner)

    For what these plates are capable of stopping at this price point it’s a no brainer. I only wish they were less then 8lbs each they are heavy when in the box or your hand but not so bad when in the carrier and on your body. With that said if I had to were them every day all day I would have opted for something lighter. But great product would definitely recommend this item.

  19. Jade Chiara (verified owner)

    Exceeded my expectations!

  20. Gage (verified owner)

    High quality armor for such a low cost and extremely fast shipping. Although heavy and single curve (I’ve been spoiled by the issued armor from being in the Army lol), the plates are well worth it. The money saved by purchasing these plates over the $600-$1000 plates, allows you to invest in other life saving equipment and training.

    PS: Having heavier plates provides for a better weight vest. Get some solid workouts in so you can outrun that fat ATF agent.

  21. Shane (verified owner)

    Excellent build quality and fastest shipping time in the armor industry. In my hands in 3 days after placing my order. Awesome

  23. William (verified owner)

    RMA’s Level IV Stand Alone Plate set (Model 1155) are phenomenal! These plates provide incredible stopping power at a price point that makes them available to any law enforcement professionals seeking to improve upon those typically issued by many departments. These plates (NIJ .06 certified) are supported by RMA with a ten year warranty, twice that of other manufacturers. RMA’s leadership and their employee representatives provide unsurpassed customer service! Customer service that you can count on and representatives you look forward to speaking with. If your looking for plates that do exactly what they are intended to do and at an unbelievable price, look no further. These plates in conjunction with the Shellback Elite 2.0 plate carriers are highly recommended. Bulk is modest and weight is far more manageable than you can imagine. Do the research, evaluate the products, and you will find that RMA is worthy of your business!

    I mean…how do you review armor…?! It seems very well made, the price was good, and it arrived quickly. Has it stopped bullets? No. Has it failed to stop bullets? No. Much like a parachute, positive reviews from those who have thoroughly tested the product will be the only kind written….ya get what I’m saying? So, my impression of it at this point is very positive. Should that change, feel free to contact me via ouija board or seance to find out why.

  34. Logan M. (verified owner)

    Hard to beat for the price. Mine were manufactured two weeks before I received, so you aren’t getting plates that have been sitting for years. Plenty of videos online to show how effective they are against different calibers. Would buy again.

  77. Charles (verified owner)

    Thankfully, I cannot speak to the level of protection offered by these plates. In all other regards, they are great for the money. The 10×12 fits very well in the front of my LBT 6094-A, leaving a very small gap at the top (9.5 x 12.5 SAPI would have been perfect). I am glad I took the chance on single curve, because they feel pretty good and are way cheaper than multi-curve ceramics. I had been looking at level III+ steel plates, but for the price, it made much more sense to go with a pair of 1155’s. No regrets whatsoever.

  78. Eric (verified owner)

    Hopefully I never have to test it, but the quality of the armor is outstanding for the price. The item was in stock at the time of purchase and it only took 2 days to arrive at my residence in Wisconsin. Have already recommended this product to my friends. I very rarely leave reviews but I felt I had to for these. Thank you!

    Nice snug fit in my CIRAS carrier. These are on the heavy side, but for the price, I’m not sure that there’s a better deal on the market.

    First two sets purchased took several weeks to arrive. Last set about a week.

    There is a push to ban plates in both state legislatures and Congress. If the government doesn’t want you to be hard to kill, you should probably make yourself hard to kill.

  84. Thomas Jones (verified owner)

    Got recommended the plates by a friend, watched some review footage, and from what i saw, these plates can take 30.6 green tip from 15 feet away. These plates can stop some serious close range rounds. plates arrived on time, and undamaged. Would recommend.

    Took longer then they estimated. Packaging was blah. During handling the box was tore and it ripped the outside fabric cover on one plate. They could of packaged it a little tougher. But for price and actual product very good. I would order side plates and I would recommend them to a friend. Just hope they package better next time and can give a real estimated time.

    Arrived exactly when they estimated, even amongst the chaos and huge influx of orders they’ve received since the start of the year. The ladies and gentlemen at RMA still took care and paid attention to detail, which is evident in the quality of the plates. RMA isn’t slapping these together and getting them out the door ASAP, which is exactly what you want when you’re counting on the armor to save your life. Highly recommended, and will be purchasing more armor from RMA in the future!!

    Plates came in exactly one month, not too bad of a wait time. 4 starts cause the plates are kinda heavy compared to other plates of the same protection level. They’re a lot more affordable then the lighter level IV though.

    I got the 1155’s single curve body amour! This armor is amazing for the price!!! Better than steel plates. If your on the fence just pull the trigger you will not regret it. The single curve is awesome but if you can afford it, get the multi curve and lighter plates! You’ll be happy you did! Shipping was 2-4 weeks. after I purchased my plates shipping went up to 5 weeks. But received my plates by the 3rd week. They respond well on Facebook so if you have a question you can expect an answer!

    I’m sure it works and is exactly as advertised, but it’s heavy! Just know what you’re using it for, if you’re going to be walking around with this all day you might want to consider getting something later. However if you’re just using it to get to safety you’ll be fine

    Haven’t had to test it yet lol, but it is a well made product. Lead time was spot on. Good price, no gouging

  130. Eric L. (verified owner)

    Super happy with my 1155 plates. They are not the lightest thing out there, but I’m OK with that due to their performance especially with multiple strikes. Will be purchasing for the wife and daughter real soon

  131. Andrew (verified owner)

    These are fantastic plates, no BS “cheat ring” of foam like knockoff plates, and NIJ certified protection for nearly the same price of some of those other companies that rely on word play and paid YouTube reviews to sell products. Absolutely no regrets on this purchase!

  132. Dennis Wax (verified owner)

    Love them..just wish either I was stronger or they were lighter.

    Awesome armor, unparalleled lead times. Excellent customer service. Major thanks to their customer service guy (forgive me I don’t recall the name) for helping me out a ton and also having a great social media presence!

    Came wrapped well to ensure safe shipping and are great plates.

    I have yet to test out yet, but the quality on the surface looks to be solid. I am hoping this is one piece of gear that I never have to use. Customer service was great and will buy from again.

    Order arrived exactly to the date what the lead time said. Looks great out of the box, in perfect condition.

    Love these plates, I ordered a set with Shellback SF carrier and I couldn’t be happier, its definitely comfortable to wear and I’m confident that if ever needed the plates will do the job flawlessly. I definitely plan on ordering another set soon. There is no such thing as too much ammo , and ill definitely say the same about armor, especially of this quality

    These are the best level IV plates anywhere, since they are rated for multiple hits of .30-06 AP.

  141. Michael T. (verified owner)

    Outstanding. Not tested personally, however fit and finish was the best.

  142. Daniel (verified owner)

    These are some of the best plates I’ve ever used. The price is unbeatable for the quality.
    I hope that RMA ends up making 6X8 plates of this caliber.

  143. Jason H. (verified owner)

    While I cannot give an 100% honest review yet due to the fact that I haven’t been shot in the plates, they fit and feel great! If I ever do get shot in the plates, and they work, I will for sure give a great review. If they do not work, well, I probably won’t be doing too much reviewing afterwards.

  144. Oscar P. (verified owner)

    Perfect addition to my gear, arrived sooner then what the website stated THANK YOU. Hope I never take a hit but if I do I know I’ll be protected and continue in the first, thank you RMA for a awesome product at a great price!

    Expedient turn around, fast shipping, exactly as described.

  146. Richard (verified owner)

    Outstanding quality and dependability while still being affordable. You can find plenty of independent tests on YouTube on top of the NIJ certification. Also the lead time for the 1155 is unheard of in the current climate we’re in. Other armor companies can be 2-3 times longer. So if you’ve been on the fence or procrastinating on placing an order…stop and just do it. Waiting will get you nowhere except deeper into regret as this country continues on the current path.

    Nice looking plates, Great quality, received the plates soon than expected. I definitely would recommend these.

    I being Ex Tactical LE have body-armor kits already, but I heard about this company (RMA) and then I saw some YouTubes one of which sold me!
    It defeated a 338 round…Not just one, multiple rounds…SOLD, I’m a Believer, I mean you’d be dead anyway from a 338 hitting your torso, but for lesser more common threat rounds, You’re GOOD!

    Great price and great quality. The plates are very heavy though. I’m aware RMA offers lighter IV plates, but the price difference is way to high.

  153. Dalton W. (verified owner)

    Very comfortable and fit in my 5.11 tactec no problem!

  154. Michael Salati (verified owner)

    Good price point for level 4 protection. Plates fit well in LBT 6094G3V2 large carrier. I live in Iowa and I like that they are made here.

  155. Mateo Hernandez (verified owner)

    This a top quality product, the price is as good as you will find, and the turn around time is reasonable. You are purchasing a product to save your life, trust RMA.

  156. Tyler E. (verified owner)

    Super satisfied with the product. Fits perfect in my carrier, awesome quality as well. Really looking forward to a tour of the factory in the near future.

  157. Branden G. (verified owner)

    Definitely heavier than I expected but not bad once you adjust the carrier. The fit though is super comfortable. Also works well with armor behind it.
    The price is amazing for a level IV plate.
    Can’t wait till my side plates arrive Definitely a company I trust with my life thanks rma

    Nicely wrapped, came packaged well. Reasonably light for the price and protection. Great budget option to stop all common rifle threats. Fits VERY snugly in my Ferro Slickster, but does fit with just a bit of work.

  162. Anonymous (verified owner)

    Incredible armor, especially for the price!

  163. Joe (verified owner)

    I’m very satisfied with these plates. Shipped in much shorter time than most companies (~4 weeks), and they are extremely high quality. I haven’t seen their stopping power firsthand, but from my research and seeing and feeling the quality, I am willing to put my life behind these.

    BOTTOM LINE: Arguable the best Ceramic Multicurve Level IV Plates, quick to ship too

  164. Darnell N. (verified owner)

    Couldn’t be more happier with my plates. On the heavier side but these are level 4 plates and I’m not trying to do CrossFit. Spent a lot of time researching and trying to find the best bang for my buck without breaking my bank and came across RMA. So glad I purchased. Very happy with my plates and also a plus to support a fellow veteran.

  166. Mason S. (verified owner)

    Good plates that are on the heavier side, good pricing too.

  167. Henry (verified owner)

    Came faster than expected even with the posted lead times. Super well done on the packaging during shipping with zero concerns over any damage to the plates. The plates themselves are much lighter than expected and fit my existing carrier perfectly. Will for sure buy another set for work once the OT checks hit.

  168. Kenneth (verified owner)

    Awesome and Top Notch. I’d buy again!

  173. Michael Buck (verified owner)

    This is my 1st set of plates and I wanted lvl 4 ceramic protection.
    I am very glad that I found and went with RMA’s 1155 set, they are constructed very well, they are a great price and I received them about 23 days after placing my order so needless to say I was more than satisfied in every aspect.
    I know these are their “heavier” plates @ 8.3lbs each but once loaded up and on the setup does not feel all that heavy to me.
    I would definitely buy this set again. (I’ve already been justifying it in my head)
    Thank you RMA!!!

  174. Bob g. (verified owner)

    It’s a beautiful thing. I was comparing products and I kept ending up back to RMA. Well worth the little wait time. .. (Wuhan assisted I’m sure) but firs in Carrier perfect and isnt ridiculously heavy. I’d give more stars.. definitely recommend.

    My Agency doesn’t do a very good job at picking out body armor. I thought these would make a good investment into my law enforcement career and they are so far holding up to the task for sitting in my patrol vehicle until I need them.

  184. gavin smith (verified owner)

    I ordered my plates and expected it to be around a four week lead time. However, i received them in two. They are definitely high quality and very comfortable to wear versus other plates on the market.

    Very good for the price and fits perfect in my plate carrier a little more heavier than i like them to be but for the price and protection very good plates

  189. Mike S. (verified owner)

    Great for the value! These plates are definitely on the heavy side but to get level IV NIJ certified ceramics for this price point there will always be trade-offs.

    I cannot speak to the function of the plates under ‘use’ so they say and hope I never get to speak to that!

    Buy with confidence. Delivered exactly at quoted lead time.

    Very well made comfortable plates with a solid cut. I’m so glad I went to RMA other than some of the other modern militiamen brands out there. As a current law enforcement officer and former Marine, I’m very pleased with the life saving equipment I purchased from RMA.

    Body armor is one of those products you never really know if it works until you are in a catastrophic event….That means it come down to trust! I saw the adverts, and the video tests, and I really liked the idea of a Level IV ceramic (lighter weight), but with the ability to take multiple shots!

    I have bought two sets of these plates from RMA: The first set to check it out, and was very impressed with the form and fit of the plates. They look and feel like quality. I bought a second set for my son for Christmas, and he is in the Army. I believe he will be better served by these RMA plates than the standard issue.

    That is all I can say. It is about trust, and I believe RMA is delivering an excellent product at an excellent price. I plan to buy more over time as I can afford it. Thanks, RMA!

    The plates arrived in a timely manner. They were brand new. They weren’t made several months before my order and sitting in storage and then sent to me. They were made after I ordered and sent in a timely manner. The package they came in could’ve had more padding than it did to better protect the plates from underpaid material handlers who can carelessly handle boxes during shipping. Their weight isn’t too terribly bad. I would’ve preferred if they could in a bit larger size but that’s just a personal preference due to my 6’8” tall and large body frame. The plates of course still cover vitals I would just like it if they came in a larger size so they don’t look like I’m wearing size medium plates on my large body frame.
    I rate it a 4 because of the above mentioned. I can’t rate it a 5 because I haven’t seen it get shot and do as advertised.
    Also I think it’s important to note that the product review link was sent to me a few months after I ordered the plates, not the same day I received them. That gives people time to actually have product in hand to see how it really is vs just writing a review right after receiving it.
