AR500 Armor® launched its own line of ballistic armor and body armor solutions in 2012. We entered the industry with the mindset of manufacturing top-quality, reliable products that offered our customers high-value solutions. Our products are intended for responsible law-abiding American citizens, our law-enforcement personnel, and our military personnel; we currently sell to legal residents of the United States.
With our unique in-house manufacturing processes and ability to acquire material made to our specifications, we’ve set the standard for ballistic steel core body armor. Utilizing industry-leading fragmentation mitigation coatings we’ve further increased what’s possible with ballistic steel. Our products, which in addition to body armor include plate carriers, tactical accessories, apparel, and armored backpacks are available through our website and authorized dealers throughout the United States. AR500 Armor® is a privately held business; our headquarters, team members, and manufacturing facility are located in Phoenix, Arizona.
