**Be Advised: Agilite BLINDSIDE™ Side Armor is in extremely high demand and therefore has a 7-9 week lead time. Order now to reserve yours and join the wait list.  


At Agilite, we are big believers in ballistic side plates to protect your vital organs, and not without reason. Among countless other incidents, the Agilite Founder’s IDF Commanding officer was shot and killed when a terrorist bullet struck him between his front and rear armor plates.

You can take a lethal direct hit to your heart or other vital internal organs while wearing the best front and back armor in the world. Often overlooked, ballistic side plates cover your critical access areas that are completely exposed, especially when your weapon is raised.

Ballistic Side Plates

While many side plates are thick and heavy, Agilite Blindside™ plates give you a smart solution. We wanted to create a side plate that protects a relatively large vulnerable surface area from rifle threats, but that are super light and low-profile so they aren’t heavy or impeding in CQB environments. With just a 0.588” profile, Blindside™ will stop a 7.62x39 AK Armor-Piercing round, a 5.56 M855 mild steel armor penetrating core (Green Tip) round, 5.56, Multiple other 5.56 and 7.62x39 lead or Mild Steel Core rounds heading straight for your internal organs.

Whether you are facing daily threats as a military operator, LEO, or a private civilian wanting to be prepared for the day you’ll face a shooter, side plates are essential to not leave yourself vulnerable. Nothing would be more soul-destroying than taking the time to both purchase and wear body armor, and then take a direct hit to your heart.

👍 Thumbs Up to Agilite...!

Received my ‘Operators’ armor approximately two weeks ago. I’m very pleased with the quality and perfect fit. Setup was simple.

If I have to pick one negative - I would be hard pressed, and it does not concern the quality or comfort of the product, but the time it takes to manufacture. Approximately four months from order to delivery.

Given our current day concerns and viral issues I understand. Overall, well worth it once I received all items ordered. Items do ship separately, (as they are manufactured), to keep expectation levels high.

I highly recommend this product if you value personal safety.

Worth it

I've been in contract work all around the Middle East for the last decade and I highly recommend these plates. The ballistic level is highest there is but they are incredibly light and very thin. IT's important to be able to move and get out of a vehicle fast so I went for these and I'm glad I did.

Best Armor on the Market

I did a lot of research and this is the best armor available to civilians. If I'm buying armor to save my life I'm not gonna skimp and save a few bucks. Glad I took the dive, the quality is highest I've seen.
