One of the biggest downsides to wearing rigid body armor is that it severely limits your mobility. Premier Body Armor has just released their aptly named AGILE Level IIIA Soft body armor inserts. Premier Body Armor claims that their new AGILE inserts are special threat tested against 12 gauge buckshot and slugs as well as Liberty Civil Defense 9mm and 5.7x28mm.
New AGILE Level IIIA Soft Armor Inserts from Premier Body Armor
GASTONIA, N.C. – March 4, 2021 – Premier Body Armor is proud to announce their new AGILE Level IIIA Soft Armor Inserts. These lightweight and agile ESAPI cut plates exceed NIJ ballistic standards for Level IIIA and fit in any standard plate carrier, are thin, and incredibly comfortable.
“There’s never been a more appropriate name for any of our inserts,” said Jason Mammano, Vice President of Marketing and Communications at Premier Body Armor. “The new AGILE soft armor inserts are incredibly light and flexible. Each panel weighs just over a pound. And they’re less than a quarter of an inch thick. For those who want robust protection and maximum maneuverability, the AGILE level IIIA plates are ideal.”
The new AGILE level IIIA soft armor inserts can be purchased individually. The AGILE armor inserts measure 10″x12″x.22″ and weigh just 1.2lbs per insert.
AGILE level IIIA inserts are tested to stop common handgun rounds as specified by NIJ Standard-0101.06. Inserts will protect against 9mm, .40, .45, and .44 magnum, and are special threat tested against 12 gauge (both buckshot and slugs), Liberty Civil Defense 9mm and FN 5.7×28 (SS197SR). The inserts are also stab and slash-resistant and protected by a 5-year warranty.
AGILE inserts are also available in the USA Classic Carrier/AGILE Bundle. The package pairs Premier Body Armor’s Classic plate carrier with the new Agile soft body armor panels. The two inserts and the Classic carrier weigh just 3.9lb.

Soft armor plates offer a much higher degree of mobility for people such as law enforcement officers, security guard personnel, or even just your average everyday citizen. If you’re looking to lighten the load and are willing to sacrifice protection against rifle calibers, these plates may be a great replacement for your hard armor plates in your plate carrier.
