Rear SAPI plate, and SWIMMER front plate for greater mobility up front where you need it. The SAPI and SWIM plates have the same overall surface coverage area and weight, just in slightly different areas. The corners on SAPI plates dig into your ulnar nerve when using your hands in front of you. This CATI NIJ LEVEL III set includes 4 Armor Plates Front, Rear, Sides and COYOTE MOPC PLATE CARRIER.

CA500_68_CB: CATI ARMOR AR500 LEVEL 3 6x8 SIDE PLATE SET BASE COAT. This model complies with NIJ Standard-0101.06 for Ballistic Resistance of Body Armor. Unlike any other steel body armor, CATI ARMOR has unique PATENTED forming process to produce the most comfortable, ergonomic steel body armor available. For decades a multi-curve armor plate was only available in a composite, but not anymore.CATI Armor® You offer a "Swimmer" cut plate and a "SAPI" cut plate. The SAPI cut plate shape is based off of the military design of their SAPI plate. This plate is best utilized as a rear position plate.
In contrast, the Swimmer cut plate has steeper cuts on the sides which allows for greater mobility up front where you need it. CATI Armor® You have the CQB multi-curve plate and the EVO plate - is that like a single curve plate? In the CQB forming process you create a top bend in the plate and two side bends that run from the bottom center of the plate outward to the upper mid-portion of the trauma plate. This forms and upside-down isosceles triangle, which is the perfect shape for forming to the human torso.
The EVO plate is our answer to a single curve. With this plate you get to keep the side bends, which allows the plate to fit closer to your body, making it more secure.
But the plate does not include the upper form fitting bend. This plate is ideal for people that want a better fit than single curves, but don't really see themselves "running and gunning" in full gear.
But for the perfect fit, the CQB is the one you need. CATI® Do you use Rhino Linings or Line-X Paxcon?We utilize a product from Rhino Linings Extreme line of coatings. This coating was the specific recommendation from Rhino Military's R&D department for spall/splatter mitigation. When compared to Line-X Paxcon PX-2100, our coating is statistically identical in measurable properties, but Rhino data sheet claims 25% stronger in Tensile Strength over Paxcon PX-2100. But, in order to be able to effectively utilize the properties of the coating you need excellent adhesion. Our plates undergo a 4-part preparation prior to coating.
Our spall "build-up" layer is nothing short of top-notch. We are easy to work with if there are ever any issues needed addressing now or in the future.
