MKS Supply and Full Forge Gear have partnered up to launch an ultra-lightweight 10×12-inch shooter’s cut ballistic panel with NIJ Level IV of projectile impact resistance.

These new Full Forge Gear Featherweight Level IV plates use modern materials and manufacturing techniques to keep the weight down and increase wearer comfort. Each ballistic panel weighs less than 6 pounds and is designed around being worn for extended periods of time without inducing wearer fatigue or discomfort.

With its unmatched protection and comfort, we believe it exceeds the standard in the industry, and we back that with a five-year warranty.”
