Body armor is a regular part of the equipment that uniformed personnel take with them when they deliberately go in harm’s way. There are many kinds of armor that are available according to mission requirements.
The National Institute of Justice has incorporated five levels of armor plating as per threat assessment. These include Level II, Level IIA, Level III, Level IIIA, and Level IV. The higher the level, the greater the protection, even from very powerful rifle rounds.
However, there is a tradeoff in terms of weight and size with higher levels being heavier and bulkier There was a time when level IV armor was very difficult for soldiers in the field to wear for an extended period due to weight and comfort issues. Cutting-edge technology has helped to resolve this issue to a great extent. This is where HESCO Armor, Inc. makes its appearance.
HESCO products have been used to protect our brave men and women in uniform for over two decades. All HESCO products are tested thoroughly at their production facility and are engineered to exceed even the most rigorous NIJ standards.
