What sets our Level 4 Body Armor apart?

You get uncompromising protection with options to suit your needs.

Our Level 4 Body Armor is designed with cutting-edge composite materials that offer superior protection without compromising comfort. The MIRA Safety 403 series provides a cost-effective solution for those who require NIJ Level 4 protection against high-powered rifle rounds. The plates are made of advanced composite materials with a highly durable, water-repellent polyurethane coated Cordura fabric finish.

For those who prioritize lightweight and thin profile without sacrificing protection, the MIRA Safety 408 series is the perfect choice. Using Alumina Oxide Ceramic (AI2O3) and Ultra-High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMWPE), specifically Spectra® from Honeywell, we've made a lightweight armor system that can withstand high-powered rifle rounds and armor-piercing threats while reducing overall weight by as much as 40%.

Both series undergo rigorous testing to ensure they meet and exceed the NIJ Standard 0101.6, the industry benchmark for ballistic protection. With proper care and maintenance, your Level 4 Body Armor will provide reliable protection for years to come.

With the MIRA Safety 403 series armor, you get NIJ Level IV protection against high-powered rifle rounds at a good price. The 4403 series offers single and multi-curve options, as well as shooter and SAPI cuts.

MIRA Safety 408 series armor, on the other hand, delivers special threat protection (Level IV+) in a lightweight package. The 4800 series comes in multi-curve design with shooter/swimmer and SAPI cut options, making it ideal for those prioritizing advanced threat protection and mobility.

Both series feature a water-repellent polyurethane coated Cordura fabric finish for durability and resistance to harsh environments. The 403 series is NIJ 0101.06 certified, while the 408 series has been independently tested to meet the highest industry standards.

Choosing between MIRA Safety 403 or 408 series armor ultimately depends on your needs, threat assessment, and budget. The 403 series is a cost-effective solution for reliable NIJ Level IV protection, while the 408 series is perfect for those seeking lightweight, advanced threat protection.

Which one should I get?

Well, the 408 series is superior to the 403 series in the following aspects:


Protection level: The 408 series provides special threat protection (Level IV+), which is higher than the NIJ Level IV protection offered by the 403 series.


Weight: The 408 series is significantly lighter, weighing 5.1 lbs for the 10"x12" shooter/swimmer cut, compared to 7.7 lbs for the same size in the 403 series.


Material:
The 408 series uses advanced materials like Alumina Oxide Ceramic (AI2O3) and Ultra-High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMWPE), specifically Spectra® from Honeywell, which contributes to its lightweight and high-performance design.

But, the 4403 series has its own advantages:

Cost-effectiveness: The 4403 series is more affordable than the 4800 series while still providing reliable NIJ Level IV protection.

Thickness: The 4403 series plates are thinner at 0.83 inches compared to the 4800 series plates at 1.07 inches.

Bottom line…

If you’re looking for the highest level of protection and a lightweight design, and budget is not a primary concern, the 4800 series is the better choice.

But, if you’re looking for a cost-effective solution that still offers reliable NIJ Level IV protection, the 4403 series is an excellent option.

Rigorous Testing for Your Safety

We put both the MIRA Safety 403 and 408 series through extensive testing to ensure they meet and exceed the NIJ Standard 0101.6, which is the industry benchmark for ballistic protection.

This testing involves:

  1. Exposing the material to various environmental conditions like heat and moisture

  2. Subjecting it to mechanical wear and tear

  3. Conducting ballistic tests to evaluate its ability to stop bullets and prevent blunt force trauma

By putting our materials through these tests, we can guarantee that they will provide reliable protection when it matters most, regardless of the series you choose.
