The BulletSafe Alpha Plate is an ultralight, Level III plate.
The BulletSafe Alpha Plate offers NIJ 0101.06 Level III protection at 3.3lbs and $249. It is the best-value, ultralight, level III rifle-resistant plate on the market.
Our Ultralight Level III Plate is Just $249.97.
BulletSafe strives to make great protection available for everyone. That is why we provide this ultralight polyethylene plate for approximately 1/2 of what other people offer it for.
When is this the right plate?
BulletSafe thinks that this is the perfect plate for people who will see active-shooter situations often. While our ceramic plate offers great protection, some customers need to wear their plates so often that they want the lightest thing possible. These folks will want the BulletSafe Alpha Plate.
This Ballistic Plate is a Standard Size.
The BulletSafe Ballistic Plate fits securely in the pocket of the Large-4X BulletSafe Bulletproof Vests. It is a little bit too thick to fit in the Extra Small, Small, and Medium Size BulletSafe vest. It also fits in most standard plate carriers. It is 11 7/8 inches tall, 10 inches across, and 1.0 inches in depth. It is curved to fit close to your body, and features a nylon cover that protects it from the sun and typical wear and tear.
Is this the best Lightweight Ballistic Plate on the market?
Yes, not only is it within 1 lb. of the lightest plates, it is far less expensive than anything comparable. At $249 it is a great value.
How many Ballistic Plates should I buy?
It depends on how much protection you desire. SWAT teams and those who expect to be shot at from the front wear one ballistic plate in the chest pocket. Those who are in warzones wear two ballistic plates: one in the front pocket, and one in back. Analyze your unique situation to decide on how many plates you will need.
What is the protection level of this plate?
The BulletSafe Alpha Plate meets the ballistic requirements of NIJ 0101.06 Level III. It will stop 6 steel jacketed rounds from a 7.62mm M80 with a mass of 9.6g and a velocity of 2780 ft/s. We should note that this plate will also stop non-AP rounds from ARs and AKs that are slower and lighter than this. This protection level is perfect for people who are concerned about active shooter situations and need rifle protection.
How long is the life?
This plate is guaranteed to work and stop bullets as promised for five years. After those five years, there is not enough research on the materials used to be 100% sure that the plate will continue to stop bullets as promised. For this reason, the plate has a useful life of 5 years.
Who can buy a bulletproof vest?
Almost anyone can order a bulletproof vest from us. Unless you are a convicted violent felon, you can legally order, own, and wear a bulletproof vest. The law does not limit your ability to be safe. We ship vests to 49 states (not Connecticut, and not internationally). If you live in Connecticut, you are required to buy a vest "in person" from one of our dealers.
Who buys bulletproof vests.
Bulletproof vests are popular for armored car personnel, police officers, security guards, ATM service technicians, repo men, investigators, pawn brokers, gas station attendants, avid shooters, hunters, preppers, and anyone else who wants to protect themselves from danger. No one wants to die at work, so people at risk buy BulletSafe Bulletproof Vests.
Why is it a vest?
The bulletproof vest has evolved into a vest shape to protect your most vital organs and keep you alive if there is an incident. Body armor is most comfortable when it is lightweight and you can move freely. For these reasons, a vest is the best configuration. A large bulletproof vest offers twice the protection area of a plate carrier with two 10x12 plates. If you want to protect yourself on the job, you want a bulletproof vest.
What are the pouches on the front and back for?
If you ever decide that you want protection from rifle rounds or heavier weaponry, you'll need to acquire ballistic plates. We have a great plate at a great price as well and it fits perfectly in these pockets. Our lightweight ceramic plates will fit in BulletSafe vests size SM-4X, while our Ultralight PE plates fit in Medium-4X BulletSafe Vests. Our Extra Small vests do not have space for the pouches.

Is it comfortable?
The BulletSafe Vest features a CoolMax rear liner and fully adjustable top and side straps. These features make it more comfortable than many bulletproof vests. Still, bulletproof vests in general are not very comfortable and ours is no different.
