The Rimelig plates are available in a variety of sizes, and they can be worn as vests, backpacks, messenger bags, and more. These armor panels are made from imported p-Aramid Fibers and are designed, cut, and assembled in the United States. They are available in black and red.

Hybrid Soft Body Armor is made with industry-leading materials, including honeywell Gold Shield and Spectra Shield. It is ultra-thin and lightweight, weighing only 1.04 pounds. It is also comfortable, making it an ideal choice for most users. This type of armor can be worn underneath a uniform or other gear. It is also flexible, making it easier to reach over or go around obstacles. Its thin, flexible nature helps it protect the wearer while optimizing comfort.

Hard body armour is made of a different material and relies on more materials for strength and durability. Because of its rigidity, it is heavier and less flexible than soft body armour. Many users of hard armor report that it causes discomfort, is hotter than soft armor, and makes it difficult to wear for long periods. However, the strength and flexibility of hard body armour make up for these downsides. Some types of hard body armour are rated for ballistic protection against high caliber rifles.
