NIJ Threat Protection Chart ('06 and '04)*

* There is no difference in threat between the NIJ ’04 and NIJ ’06 standards. The differences are in the rigorous nature of the test protocols.

  • 04 requires 9 plates tested while 06 is 24
  • 04 conditioning requires water “spray” for 6 minutes while 06 is submerged in water for 30 minutes with a 10 minute drip period
  • 06 also requires a 10 day tumble (149F,80%hum), 1 day of thermal exposure (5-194F,0-80%hum) as well as a mechanical durability test (drop)

    great side plates

    Fit my side molle pouch like a glove. I will say my rig balances better with the side plates in, others mileage may vary. Happy with this purchase.

    NDA

    Received my side plates. Customer service assured me they would fit my First Spear carrier. Received an they did not fit.  Then found out that I did not have the side plate pouch! Learn something new every day. NDA really educated me, and now I’m protected all around
