AR550 Body Armor comes uncoated so you can inspect the quality of your armor but armor protectant coating can be purchased separately. Most companies do not clean their armor, which allows surface rust. Covering rust with paint or bedliner will deteriorate your armor. This is what sets AR550 Body Armor apart from the rest. We do recommend cleaning the Armor and applying a protective coating. Most carriers have a ballistic lining to prevent spalling/fragmentation as well as the Frag Bag.
