The Delta Speed Rig is the lightest rifle-rated steel plate system available.  

The Delta Torso Plate is cut from the same material as the Delta Shield. This is a Special Threats rated product, specifically designed to stop assault rifle fire.  These are not Level III plates and will not stop full strength .308 hits. For users primarily concerned about AR-15s and AK-47s and not wanting to be weighed down and slowed down by a bunch of chunky Level III plates, the Delta Speed Rig is ideal.

Every Delta Torso plate automatically comes with a trauma pad and anti-spall coating.

The Delta material is HARD and can’t be shaped without potentially compromising the ballistic integrity, so these torso plates are flat.

The Delta Torso Plates are Made in USA.  

Note: Hardcore Defense torso plates currently leverage the ballistic certifications of the Delta Shield per NIJ Standard 0108.  Body armor (including hard plates) is typically tested to NIJ Standard 0101 which uses the same test rounds and velocities as 0108, but requires additional drop testing, thermal preconditioning, and back face signature measurements.
