Angel Armor unveiled a new, innovative concealable soft body armor system called RISE and extremely lightwight hard armor plates today at the SHOT Show in Las Vegas.
RISE is ultimate safety, comfort and versatility, says company spokesperson Reed Doughty. RISE also enables officers to elevate their protection with the tiered Truth SNAP Plate System — unique new trauma plates that provide rifle-threat protection integrated in an ultra lightweight package for extended, all-day use.
RISE features include:
- Advanced Ballistic Suspension System and proprietary QuadCore Attachment System for a repeatable fit
- Versatile, low profile laser-cut panels for PALS/MOLLE-compatible attachments
- Integrated Truth SNAP plate system — enhanced protection against 5.56x45mm FMJ, 7.62x39mm FMJ (AK-47) and other special threats. Truth SNAP is a concealable two-piece trauma plate system designed to protect against NIJ 0108.01 Level IIIA threats and beyond, delivering rifle threat protection integrated in an ultra lightweight package for extended, all-day use. The magnetic SNAP system ensures a strong union and proper alignment for tiered threat protection — making it easier to armor up
- Seven points of adjustment to ensure a tailored and secure fit
Doughty says Angel Armor developed the rise system after consulting more than 1,500 law enforcement officers. "We’ve listened, we’ve studied and we’ve responded to the needs of heroes, patriots and guardians,” said Josh Richardson, Co-Founder for Angel Armor. “Our industry-leading research, engineering and development teams have united behind a brand new, proprietary personal protection platform.”
RISE is designed to protect against NIJ 0101.06 Level II and Level IIIA standards and numerous special threats and is available for both male and female officers. RISE Male Level IIIA Ultra Premium vest is designed to meet the DEA Armor Testing Protocol, FBI 4.1 Body Armor Test Protocol and the USASOC Frag Testing protocol.
