Hey Testrider,

Good question. There is actually no level 3 at the moment. Let me explain...

It has been presented to us that the SAS-TEC armor falls actually off the CE scale, by outperforming it, which has ratings of 1 and 2 respectively.

"Off the CE Chart" is actually a more accurate statement. We have had so many conversations with customers where we have described the scale and said if there was a level "3" the SAS-TEC would be at it or above it.

Currently we are waiting for more definitively labeled studies to be released about the terminology to be used when describing the SAS-TEC.

Too often we have gotten comfortable with "3+" as a means to quickly quantify the performance until SAS-TEC or CE release further terminology. Many folks understand CE 1 and 2 and want to quickly get the gist of where SAS-TEC fits in to the Armor mix.

Labeling aside, it is the most advanced armor available. I will most likely go back to that post and adjust the wording to be more appropriate.

Sorry for the confusion. Hope this clarifies your question.

Anthony
