Hesco 4601 Level IV Plate Set – SAPI Cut
Looking for a great set of plates that aren’t the “budget” option but still won’t break the bank? The 4601s offer that sweet spot of protection vs. weight vs. price. They weigh slightly more (1.5 lb) per plate than the less expensive L210 Special Threat Plates, but offer much more ballistic protection. Pure ballistic upgrade. No ballistic downgrade.
The 4601 is finished with a highly-durable Cordura wrap and waterproof coating, delivering unsurpassed quality in feel and performance. The comfort fitting multi-curve SAPI cut combined with next-gen materials makes this plate perfect for fast-moving, highly-volatile environments requiring the ultimate in protection and maneuverability.
