Proudly Manufactured in Canada


The first and only Standalone Level IV Flexible Rifle armour in the World.


The Cataphract plates get their name from an elite cavalry unit in which both the rider and the horse were completely covered in scale armour. That armour allowed soldiers to maintain a good level of mobility while also being protected from most projectiles and melee weapons. Drawing inspiration from that, our Cataphract Flexible Plates offer the same level of protection as Hard Armour, while maintaining the flexibility and comfort provided by Soft Plates.


The Cataphract will finally allow the women in the field to have armour that fits them properly without sacrificing the level of protection in the process. The Cataphract will bend and shape itself comfortably around any chest. For the first time both men and women can share the same plates with the same level of comfort and mobility. 


We have enclosed the actual ballistic material in a rip stop ballistic nylon sleeve that is fully sealed to protect the plates from the elements to extend the lifespan of the plates. These plates are multi hit rated and are cut in standard shooters cut.


The Cataphract plates come in a standard size of 250x300mm which will fit any plate carrier designed for a 10”x12” or a SAPI Medium. We are proud to say that these are made right here in Ontario.


Our Cataphract Level 4 Flexible Plates are rated to stop up to .30-06 Armor Piercing rounds. To see a detailed breakdown of NIJ Levels, please click here.
