The Kevlar series of body armor is the most basic type of armor available to the resistance in the war against the Advent and their alien masters. This armor is typically quite bulky for what is considered to be light armor. The armor does have two advantages, however – first the armor can be fitted tactical insert plates without taking up an upgrade slot, and secondly, it offers a DR against ballistic rounds equal to the armors level.  Two major drawbacks are that Kevlar armor offers less resistance when dealing with energy-based attacks, and that it cannot be sealed against environmental hazards or vacuum.

Tactical Insert Plates are crafted from light-weight composites and ceramics. They are exceedingly effective against kinetic-based attacks. The plates will absorb the listed amount of hit-point damage before shattering and being rendered useless. It requires 1 minute (on average) to replace the damaged and destroyed plates in any suit equipped.
