The Invader™ is one of the most advanced body armor plates on the market and the one with the highest performance in its price range.

When it comes to affordable ballistic armor, many people will buy a cheap set of Level 4 plates that are extremely heavy and thick.

The Invader™ is the smarter option, it uses advanced technology that incorporates a dual composite/ceramic composition to protect you. Whether you are a tactical professional or a vigilant civilian, it can keep you safe from multiple hits of the most common rounds that have been utilized in recent active shooter scenarios.

It will stop a 7.62x39 AK Armor-Piercing round, multiple hits of either a 5.56 M855 mild steel armor penetrating core (Green Tip) round, multiple 5.56 M193 Ball rounds or multiple 7.62x39 rounds-all this, while weighing only 5.4lbs

The Invader™ comes in our one recommended size and shape only- 10” X 12” Shooters Cut which will fit most body types and sizes. This is in order to ensure a good, ergonomic fit and great weapon manipulation on all body types.

It will fit in all Agilite plate carriers perfectly and should fit in all Medium and Large size plate carriers as well as others.

Low profile and comfortable.

I happened to have the opportunity to use these plates in my K-Zero carrier on a high risk raid this morning. They were comfortable, light weight, and low profile. The cut of the plates coupled with the carrier allowed me comfortable and tight shouldering of my rifle. Putting one’s life in the hands of a companies product is the ultimate recommendation and I am proud to wear Agilite at work.


Love it!!!

Level 3ST- Invader

These plates are awesome and fit perfectly in the Agilite K-Zero. Not too heavy and great price for what they are capable of.

Nathan Ingvalson
