Safariland announced today that it has released an additional armor model that satisfies the requirements of the National Institute of Justice’s (NIJ) new Voluntary Body Armor Compliance Testing Program under NIJ Standard-0101.06 (NIJ-06).
The XT01 Type IIIA is part of the ABA, Xtreme Series of concealable armor. Tested against the .357 Sig and .44 Mag. NIJ-designated rounds, the XT01 Type IIIA is a hybrid armor design that combines the high performance of Honeywell Gold Shield ballistic material with Twaron Microlaminate for enhanced ballistic and chemical resistance. The combination of these materials provides reliable protection against a wide array of threats, while also offering an enhanced degree of flexibility.
