The Legacy Ballistic Riot Shield is an ultra lightweight shield which offers Level IIIA protection. In fact, it's a must-threat protection shield in that it not only offers ballistic protection, but also protection against knives, edged weapons and blunt forces such as baseball bats, rocks and bricks.
NOTE: NIJ Level IIA can protect against 9mm Full Metal Jacketed Round Nose and .40 S&W Full Metal Jacketed ammunition, both of which are used in the majority of handguns. It can also stop similar handgun ammunition such as the 10mm Auto, .357 SIG, and even .45 ACP.
NIJ Level II armor is capable of protecting against all of the above ammunition, as well as .357 Magnum Jacketed Soft Points and 9mm Parabellum rounds fired at a higher velocity.
NIJ Level IIIA can stop all of the above ammunition, as well as 9mm Parabellum rounds fired from semi-automatic and .44 Magnum Jacketed Hollow Point rounds.
At just 9 lbs. the Legacy Police Ballistic Shield is incredibly light, easy to carry and manipulate in tactical situations. What makes it even more of a pleasure to use is it's innovative cross strap. This cross strap allows the user to suspend the shield in front of their body, freeing up both hands for required tactical or emergency situations. During testing, this feature was found to be an absolute game-changer.
