Have some questions? Take a look at some of the most frequently asked questions below to see if we have your answer.
To be rated level IIIA, armor must protect the wearer from handgun rounds up to a .44 magnum (bullet with a mass of 240 grains and a velocity of 1340 ft./s), including 9mm submachine gun rounds, and even 12-gauge shotgun slugs. Please note that we private label our armor panels so our name Leatherback Gear is not listed through NIJ website as the certificates belong to our manufacturer.
