All Ballistipax body armor is tested to meet the highest standards of ballistic resistance, performance, and reliability. Our stand-alone armor plates are compatible for use with any plate carrier designed to accept standard NIJ sizes. The Ballistipax Survivor-1 concealed tactical backpack will also accept standard NIJ sized armor in both the front and rear plate carrier compartments. All Ballistipax body armor is proudly made in the USA.
