Angel Armor Releases the RISE 2.0 and Truth SNAP 855 Plate System for All-Day Rifle Protection

We first saw Angel Armor at Warrior Expo West. Angel Armor showed us several of their ballistic protection products. One of which was the two-plate, lightweight armor system featuring earth magnets to “snap” the plates together. A few days ago, Angel Armor introduced their newest product, the RISE 2.0 system, which has increased ballistic protection, most specifically M855.

Details from Angel Armor:

FORT COLLINS, CO., — January 14, 2019 — Angel Armor has redefined armor once again with the launch of RISE 2.0 and the Truth SNAP 855 Plate System, which exhibits increased levels of protection against special threats (M855 Green Tip) in an innovative, lightweight, modular package.

“Unlike other plates on the market,” said Josh Richardson, co-founder of Angel Armor, “the Truth SNAP 855 Plate System allows for the user to replace just the ceramic strike face, which is the least expensive component of any ceramic-based solution, if ever damaged, increasing the overall life of the product while reducing budget strain. This is just one of many benefits that the Truth SNAP 855 Plate System offers to the user.”

Angel Armor has redesigned the RISE Armor System in RISE 2.0 to offer enhanced comfort, ballistic coverage, and versatility while improving All-Day Rifle Protection and market-leading weight distribution. The RISE 2.0 armor carrier utilizes 90% new premium materials with proprietary manufacturing methods and exhibits front and rear, top-load rifle plate access. The soft armor profile has been optimized using researched-based design through a collaboration with a leading University and local law enforcement.

SPECS | Truth SNAP 855

The Core Plate of the Truth SNAP 855 Plate System is a NIJ Level III ICW plate weighing in at just 1.45 pounds in an 8×10 shooter cut and just .55 inches thick. This innovative solution allows the user to magnetically attach a ceramic strike face to the core plate for increased special threats, for a total system weighing less than three pounds. The system is also available in 10×12, 8×10, 7×9 with an added new size of 9×11 for maximum All-Day Rifle Protection in our RISE 2.0 Carrier.

RISE 2.0 is available in a variety of colors and offers custom sizing.
