Women’s Body Armor – Level 4

Women’s body armor is now available from RMA Armament, the Queen of Armor. With an ever-growing number of women in military and law enforcement, along with civilians who have the desire to protect themselves from evil, it’s about time that an armor company decides to return the favor and also protect them. Women have been forcing male armor plates into their male plate carriers for decades. No longer.

Let’s face it; women have a vastly different anatomy than men. So women’s armor protection needs to take on a different size and shape. Accordingly, RMA’s new FSAPI Level 4 body armor for women has a proprietary female architecture. And, this FSAPI plate doesn’t cut corners when it comes to protection. Firstly, it’s rated to defeat the Level 4 body armor standard 30.06 M2AP. Additionally, it will also defeat M80 NATO, 7.62×39 MSC, M855, M855A1, XM193, and more.

The 1118 FSAPI Level IV female armor plate from RMA is available in a custom-engineered 9″x11″ size and also weighs only 6.9lbs.

// The Need for Women’s Body Armor

In the United States, there are nearly 100,000 female police officers, which represents 13.3% of all law enforcement personnel.

Additionally, nearly 230,000 women serve in the US military on active duty according to a diversity study done by the Department of Defense.

Those two studies don’t touch on reserves, auxiliary, or the needs of women who work in high risk professions. Additionally, women everywhere want better home defense and protection for their families. Suffice it to say, there is a great need for female armor in the United States.


The RMA 1118 female ultra-curve plate should only be worn on the FRONT. For body armor protection on the back, please also purchase a single-curve Level 4 female armor plate to ensure carrier compatibility.


RMA’s new FSAPI women’s armor has a specialized curve architecture, size, and shape. Accordingly, RMA has brought to market the Queen Plate Carrier. The QPC is built specifically for our FSAPI Level IV female armor plates to guarantee a perfect fit.

Our new 1118 female Level IV armor plates are also compatible with size small Crye JPC 1.0 & 2.0, although there is some wiggle room.

    In stock, wicked fast shipping, and appears to be RMA’s ever high quality. Unfortunately, most buyers have no way of trying this armor on and, similar to ammunition, can’t return it when it doesn’t fit or work out well. The triple curve is way too aggressive for my 63-year-old wife’s body. She’s 5’6″, 130 pounds, 30″ waist, 35″ bust, with perky C-cups and the triple curve plate digs in terribly at the top edge. There is a 1″ gap above her breasts that doesn’t close until the very top edge of the front plate. This could result in broken upper ribs if she were to take a rifle hit, since the force wouldn’t be dispersed properly. There really aren’t any alternative plates, other than the RMA single curve, to fit this perfectly-sized plate carrier. I was forced to fill the gap with a custom-fit piece of mini cell foam held in place with double-sided carpet tape to the inside of the front plate, similar to outfitting the interior of a kayak. The plate fit the profile of my 43″ chest better than hers. Breasts, especially older ones, squish a lot more than men’s chests and I believe a multi-curve, swimmer’s cut plate in 9″ by 11″ would be a better option for a lot of women. It will work out for us since I’ve done a lot of this kind of custom foam work on kayaks for almost 30 years. I’m not sure how it would work out for buyers who need this to work well right out of the box…

      Thank you for your purchase and for your review. We’re sorry that there was an issue with the way the front plate fit your wife. We tested this product (specifically the curve) extensively for fitment on many different women of all shapes and sizes over a couple years and found that it was received with overwhelmingly positive results. If you have one person loosen the shoulder straps and cummerbund and the other hold the plate in a position wear it’s comfortable, then you can comfortably tighten the cummerbund and shoulder straps in place where it’ll most comfortably hold the plate in place. Tightening the cummerbund, just a little can help pull the top edge of the plate away from the body a bit as well.

      While this is a very new product in this market, we appreciate your feedback and will work to ensure that plates shaped specifically for women will best reflect what women need for protection and comfort. If you have any questions about the plates, please feel free to email our customer service team at customerservice[at]rmadefense.com and we’d be happy to help you further, if need be.

    I got this for my fiancé. She loves them and says they are far more comfortable than other options on the market.

  6. collinpedersonusn (verified owner)

    One day, when going through kit my wife asked if I had plates for her too. She tried on my extra set of dual curve and they were uncomfortable for two obvious reasons. Picked up this triple curve plate and I was excited to hear her say they fit comfortably. She was more excited about the candy which came with it. “Ooh, Smarties!” Give whoever thought that idea up a raise!
