“We are very excited to carry this new line of body armor for our clients and customers,said Cory Finley, one of the founders and owners of Liion Defense. “Something we are very passionate about is the protection of human life, whether it’s the man on the ground overseas defending liberty and freedom, the officer in the streets defending our homes, or the public servant aiming to protect his loved ones and friends; so adding the Max III to our line-up only made sense. We are honored to be able to provide a lighter, and superior option to the men and women who will benefit from it.”

    Awesome, Now if they could only make them in a level IV.

      Have you gone to the DKX Armor website to see how they perform before commenting? As you may or may not know, body armor ratings can be quite political, like many other things, if it the goods challenge the establishment as well as the the more established companies with access to high priced lawyers. Getting a rating from the NIJ can be very, very costly and time consuming.

      There is no other armor on the market that can tick as many boxes as the DKX plates. Two of these weigh less half of one of my large ESAPI plates and will still take multiple hits… and have positive buoyancy. The same can’t be said for others.

      Looking at how much headway in the industry DKX has made in the last few years is encouraging. Seeing folks think outside the box and develop newer and better gear is what I and my others want to see! Basically what I’m trying to say, and in the most polite way possible is, don’t discount this armor based on the ratings alone. It would be like overlooking a great car because it has less power than another in its class without looking at weight, torque, grip, cost, etc.

      To anyone who may be wondering, I do not have a dog in the fight other to say I’ve done a fair bit of research for my own use and these will be the next plates I purchase based on all available info, including the great customer service provided by DKX.

      Congrats to Liion Defense!

        If policy says “thou shalt wear level IV plates” then you will wear plates with that rating. These plates could stop multiple hits from a 105mm cannon, but it does not have the rating it can’t be worn in many instances.

        • Agent K says:

          Exactly my point! Thank you.

        • We love all the comments and concerns about body armor, and it’s because of our care for life that we stand so firmly behind what DKX is doing, and carry their line at a great price!

          These plates meet and EXCEED NIJ standards for Level III. They will stop a 308 in it’s tracks.

          The original Level IV was a 3 and 3a used in conjunction with each other. If you use a DKX Level III and IIIa together your weight would be ~4.15 LBS and you would be looking at a width of 1.36″. That’s pretty impressive by any standards.

      That’s not funny. I’m actually concerned about how the tags here are powered and if the bad guys can set up an interrogator to track our movements or provide early warning to a target site.
