Storm System : Foundation
Ultra-Lightweight Side Plates
Storm Foundation side plates are ultra-lightweight 6×6″ side plates designed to be worn alongside Adept Armor torso plates.
Though it’s often said that side plates are bulky and uncomfortable to wear, these Storm Foundation side plates weigh just 0.9 pounds each. They feel effortless to wear, yet they offer considerable protection from rifle threats, including:
• 7.62x51mm M80 Ball
• 5.56x45mm M193
• .223 Remington
• 7.62x39mm Type PS Ball
• 5.45x39mm 5N7 Ball
• And more.
Though these Storm Foundation side plates are not rated for 5.56x45mm M855/SS109, they are Storm System plates, which means that they are designed for compatibility with a range of forthcoming modular strike-faces, which will bring the plate to Level IV and potentially even beyond.
This is the side plate perfected. It’s so light that you’ll forget you’re wearing it, and it can easily be up-armored if and when needed.
Compatible with all carriers that accept 6×6″ side plates. If your carrier does not accept side plates, but has a MOLLE cummerbund, the Dragoon Side Plate Pouch will work well.
