RMA Defense has recently announced their new level III+ rifle armor specifically cut for women, which they plan on making available next month. Women in the military, law enforcement, security, and civilians that just want some extra protection against rifle calibers have had some difficulties using plate armor designed for men. RMA Defense have developed four different sizes to accommodate various body shapes, which range from small to extra large. The details of RMA Defense’s rifle armor for women can be read below:
Finally, body armor made for women is coming! With an ever-growing number of women in law enforcement and the military protecting our citizens, it’s about time that a company decides to return the favor and protect them. Let’s face it, women have a vastly different anatomy then men, so they need protection that takes on a different size and shape. More info will be coming when the plates are available for sale beginning on October 1, 2020!

According to a reply in RMA Defense’s Instagram post seen below, they have also developed a special plate carrier to assist with the different fitment, but they said that the female rifle plates will also fit in other plate carriers as well.
RMA Defense hasn’t listed their pricing yet, but it should be out shortly given the upcoming release date. They did mention that the large plate will weigh around 5.2 pounds, and will have more details out soon. Their product page for female rifle armor can be found HERE, or their main website for other products can be found HERE. What do you think about the new rifle plate armor for women? Have you or another female in your life had issues with standard cut plate armor?
