level 2a and level 2
level 3a and level 3
Level 4 if no plate is inserted.
I knew it could not do level 4, but 3 is quite good

But since I did not find it listed in any spec sheets I was looking for confirmation
Google the National Institute of Justice (NIJ) for government standards. (standard .06 IIRC)
They've got more good info than you'll have time to read!
Safariland, Second Chance and other manufacturers.
