    Made well. I’m 5’10, average build and the plates are more than sufficient regarding vital coverage (I would wear either a medium or a large IOTV). Can’t comment on their designed function, but there are quite a few videos out there of this model # surviving multiple, as in 6 to 7 impacts from both 30.06 and 7.62×5- AP rounds without penetration. The ceramic runs right up to the edge of these plates unlike some others’ products youtubers have scrutinized. Lastly, that lead time published on the webpage didn’t apply in my case. Got mine in 4 days. They seem maybe a tad on the heavy side, but I think I’m just getting older and I still have no problem wearing them all day or going from prone to standing. Plus, given how they perform- I’d rather take an extra pound or 2 instead of a new hole in my chest.

  47. Christopher W. (verified owner)

    Hopefully I will never need to use them. Reasonable price for Level IV plates and they fit in my current plate carrier although a little snug.

  48. Daniel (verified owner)

    Very well made plates!! Wear them on duty often!!

  49. Anthony (verified owner)

    I’m happy with my purchase and the quality of the level IV rated 1155 plates that I received. I trust these American Made plates over import plates that I see being sold for less money elsewhere. With the recent unrest having a plate carrier in the closet ready to go is a much wiser investment now than it was just a few short weeks ago. Thanks RMA will recommend your product to everyone that asks!

  50. Shand F. (verified owner)

    Great plates. They fit ok in a large size plateMINUS carrier with some down on the bottom to adjust for height.

  51. Michael (verified owner)

    Built with quality,USA made.

  52. Tanner D. (verified owner)

    Could be a bit lighter, but for the money, you get the best bang for your buck!

  53. Melissa Elder (verified owner)

    Love it!

  54. Phillip (verified owner)

    Legit level IV armor. I have several sets of these plates.

  55. Anonymous (verified owner)

    Bought 2 plates at separate times. Very happy with the shipping time on both of them, they fit perfectly in my condor vest. Wearing it will make you feel invincible honestly.
    Only downside is the weight. But that means it’s time to hit the gym

  56. Anonymous (verified owner)

    Great product. Shipped extremely fast

  57. Tyler B. (verified owner)

    There plates are great. Quality craftsmanship, and extremely fast shipping. There was a 6-8 week lead when I ordered, they were at my door in 9 days. I will be buying more in the future.

  58. AARON (verified owner)

    Good quality. Hope I never have to use it but like the security of having it. Fits great in to my old, issued plate carrier from the Marines. Recommend for anyone looking for an affordable set of plates

  59. Anonymous (verified owner)

    Well made and unbeatable for the price.

  60. Anonymous (verified owner)

    Excellent pricing for quality plates. Wanted them to keep in my patrol vehicle in case need arises. Got exactly what I wanted at a great price. They arrived earlier than expected.

  61. Robert Crain (verified owner)

    Outstanding product. Weight is significant. Easy trade off for protection.

  66. Zachary Powers (verified owner)

    Great product. The only issue I had was fitting the 10×12 level 4 plates into my Armatus 2 plate carrier. Other than that, they’ve been solid
