Duritium® IV+HA
Model HA1RF3MC

Agency Sales Only – 80 plate minimum order

Due to specialty raw material shortages and supply chain uncertainty, the design and manufacturing of our level IV HA product line has become too costly to produce and deliver to our civilian customers at a fair market price. With that, we have found ourselves losing focus on our other model families, so we have made the decision to reserve HA manufacturing capacity to service only bulk orders destined for agencies and departments for the indefinite future.
The level IV HA line of products was created around the demands of the modern law enforcement agency where a super lightweight, multi-curve, level IV, NIJ requirement compliant plate was required. This differed from our level IV HS line of products which offer a larger strike face but at the cost of single curve construction and heavier weight. All ShotStop HA products currently in service are 100% compliant with ShotStop’s strict and ISO:9001 certified quality standards. We apologize for this inconvenience; please submit a form at www.shotstop.net/pages/ha-plate to inquire about placing a bulk order for your agency.

The IV+HA Level IV Body Armor is only available for Agencies with a 80 plate minimum order.

The edging or buffer was engineered to allow for lighter weight, mobility, longevity and durability against corner cracking and drops.
