GASTONIA, N.C. – July 17, 2020 – Premier Body Armor continues to expand its line of easily concealed body armor with their new STRATIS plates. STRATIS derives its inspiration from the Latin word for “layers,” and the plates are designed to fit a wide range of bags. STRATIS plates will provide a crucial layer of multi-hit protection that is practical and easy to carry.

“Premier Body Armor is dedicated to making body armor accessible for everyone,” said Alex Stewart, Vice President of Business Development at Premier Body Armor. “Our new STRATIS plates offer exceptional ballistic protection and fit in a wide variety of packs, briefcases and purses—the bags people already use and carry every day.”

STRATIS plates have been designed to stand between the user and the threat, and will stop almost all common small arms rounds on the streets today. The plates are made in the USA made, are affordable, and low-profile. 

This new panel insert is made from ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) that has been tested in an independent lab to exceed the NIJ Level III ballistic standards and is multi-hit capable. Premier Body Armor currently offers two sizes to accommodate a range of bags from office briefcases and purses (9”x13”), or larger EDC packs such as the Vertx Gamut 2.0 (10”x16”). The STRATIS line also features a unique exterior covering that shields the armor core and allows Premier to offer the plates in a wide variety of custom colors and patterns. The STRATIS line is available on and will be available through Premier’s dealer network soon.
