An independent lab tested the material and granted ExoProtect ballistic resistance certification, strong enough to meet NIJ Level III and IIIA ballistic resistance standards. The material met industry standards for protection from small arms including 9mm and .44 Magnum rounds from 16 feet, and 7.62mm rounds from a range of 50 feet.  

“ExoProtect is an excellent step forward in the protection of personnel and equipment in vulnerable situations. In my experience, performance is usually compromised for safety. ExoProtect solves this problem with a stronger, lighter solution,” said founder of ExoTechnologies Rear Admiral (ret) Michael J Silah.
