Infidel Body Armor

Hey everyone.  I've been busy testing and building the new website.  I've got most of the products listed (with prices) and a few videos. Please checkout and spread the word.

This is my second website and I've gained a little knowledge of what it takes to get Google to like you.  I need to get hits and I need to get people to post links (in context) about my site on blogs, forums, and social media.  So, I'd really appreciate the exposure if you wouldn't mind sharing my links and videos across the web.  :)

The armor will be ready for sale January 2013.  But don't let that stop you from checking out the site now.  I've spent many long hours at it, and I know there's still a few spelling errors and mis-types.  If you see something that needs fixing, please let me know.

Why Body Armor? I reached a point in my prepping that I decided that I needed body armor.  Being the entrepreneur that I am, I decided I'd make my own.  I've created several prototypes with the goal of creating a durable hard plate that will take hundreds of hits and still keep working- something that's a must in a grid down SHTF situation where you can't go purchase another plate.  I also wanted it to be affordable for preppers.  Most preppers prep on a budget and don't have access to unlimited funds.

My mindset is:  I purchased a battle riffle and train with it with the expectation  that I will be in a firefight one day.  If I'm going to be in a firefight, I'm going to want to wear body armor.  (Who wouldn't?)

So, if you own a rifle and plan on being in a gun fight someday, then it only makes sense that you'd spend at least $300 on a set of body armor.  Arm yourself and Armor Up!

Infidel Body Armor Test #1 video.

This is a video of some of the testing we did yesterday on my prototype body armor.  We've got a few changes to make, but I'm very confident we'll have a product ready for sale in the next few weeks.  I'll be selling this at  The idea is that the plates are encapsulted in hardened plastic coating and that traps the bullet fragements.  
The first shot was a 30-06, followed by 7.62x54r, then .223, and then .223 green tiped (semi armor pierceing).  Then AK 7.62x39, and then 357 Mag and 45 cal.
On the second shot, the coating failed along the edges and did not contain all the fragments.  We believe that this is an easy fix, as we applied very little coating on the edge.  I expect that adding more coating will completely fix the problem.
Comments welcome.  Sorry about the wind noise.  Please share.
Each plate weighs 7lb. 
Each plate is 1/2" thick (the plate is 1/4" hardened steel and it has a 1/4" anti spall coating).
The plates (2) will cost under $300.
Yes, it is patent pending.
Yes, I'm also selling the vests to carry them.
Each plate is 10x12" and has a 20 degree curve.
