Safariland has released the MN01 Type IIIA body armor model satisfying 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 Second Chance MN01 Type IIIA is a thin, flexible design that features a hybrid of DuPont Kevlar ballistic materials. The combination of these materials, including DuPont Kevlar XP, provides enhanced ballistic performance against special threats such as FN Five-seven's 5.7mm hollow-point round. It reinforces the brand partnership between Second Chance and DuPont, the maker of Kevlar.
The MN01 Type IIIA also features advanced perimeter and X-stitching to reinforce the armor panels, while reducing blunt trauma. The MN01 Type IIIA adds to the existing family of Type IIA and II for superior value, performance and reliability.
