Hardwire Panel

The Hardwire Advantage

A new standard in shock dissipation physics

Hardwire soft armor ballistic panels are manufactured from perfectly interlaced Dyneema® fibers pressed under 25 million pounds of force at precise temperatures, which turns multiple layers of fibers into a single system to act together as one.

This unique manufacturing process is the key to the armor’s remarkable stopping power. When a bullet impacts the armor, the energy is spread laterally as quickly as possible over a large area. The faster the energy is spread, the faster the bullet can be flattened and stopped, leaving a dent instead of a hole. Since the ballistic panels dissipate the bullet’s energy more quickly and efficiently than other armor, less material is required reducing overall panel weight.

Shock Icon

Lateral Shock Dissipation

Impact energy is spread laterally across the panel, improving ballistic protection and reducing trauma.

Shock Icon

Lightweight

14% lighter than any Level IIIA soft armor on the market with an Areal Density of only 0.68 lbs. per sq. foot

Buoyancy Icon

Positive Buoyancy

With a density that is lower than water, the ballistic panel is buoyant enough to float.

We're not redefining lightweight, we're reinventing it

Tactical operators do the most physically and mentally demanding jobs in the world. Every ounce carried matters, every ounce affects performance.

Hardwire panels have you covered. Enhanced protection with no unnecessary weight.
