Grey Ghost Gear Armor

The world is full of a$$holes, and once in a while one of them tries to kill you. Grey Ghost Gear wants to help you prepare for that possibility – they want to armor you against the a$$holes…

To do that they’ve partnered up with one of the best composite companies in the world to build affordable armor plates for responsible citizens. They’re going to have 3 models, initially,  with protection levels of III, III + and IV. They will all be NIJ certified and very lightweight (some as light as 1 lb). They will also be affordable – starting at $200.


The new plates use cutting edge technology only recently developed while building armor for a specialized maritime unit. A very limited number of them are labeled appropriately with “Front Towards A$$hole” – the rest will be simply badged with the Grey Ghost Gear logo.

TenCate Advanced Armor USA Introduces Cratus 3600SA Level III Certified Body Armor Plates

What makes this a big deal is that the Cratus™ 3600SA (NIJ Model #D1652) is the lightest, stand-alone, NIJ 0101.06 Level III Certified hard body armor plate in the body armor industry.

TenCate Advanced Armor USA combined their extensive knowledge of high-pressure manufacturing with advancements in unidirectional polyethylene materials to engineer and produce a family of plates that are 35% lighter than its predecessors.


The TenCate Cratus™ 3600SA utilizes a hybrid design of DSM Dyneema Force Multiplier Technology in combination with trauma reduction materials. A 10”x12” Shooters (SH) Cut torso plate weighs only 2.20 pounds and 6” x 6” Full- Size (FS) Cut side plates weigh 0.80 pounds. The reduction in weight has not compromised protection level because the TenCate Cratus™ 3600SA has been tested against both the 7.62mm x 51mm FMJ (M80) and the 7.62mm x 39mm PS Ball (MSC).
