Have you been looking for a hard armor plate to defeat the m855, that’s also lightweight, AND affordable? Well this plate is the new standard for the Level III+ rating.

RMA’s Level III+ (models #1091-1094) multi-curve plates are specifically tested to meet the new standards set forth by the National Institute of Justice. And with RMA’s III+ plates, there’s no confusion to what a III+ should be. After all, the new standard for III+ plates is the ability to defeat the m855, xm193, 7.62×39 MSC and the .308 M80 NATO round, which this plate does with flying colors.

If you’re looking for a lightweight armor plate that is affordable in price yet sets the standards in ballistic performance, this plate is for you.

    I just received my 1092 plates today and they are incredible. Extremely light and has nice padding/cushion surrounding the entire plate. They are very comfortable and the curves on the plate hug the body much better than my Highcom plates do and the Hesco plates I have tried. The specs are true to the plate. 1.2″ thick and 4.49lbs. Spoke several times with Blake the owner and he is extremely transparent and friendly. I highly recommend this plate to anyone looking for a low cost low weight plate. The only downside is the are on the thicker side but a work of art non the less. Thank you guys very much. I am extremely pleased with these plates. All American made materials. RMA doesn’t source material overseas like some other brands.

    Great price and light weight for the amount of protection the armor provides!

  3. aaron k. (verified owner)

    The plates is very comfortable. It’s pretty tight in my crye jpc 2.0, but it fits, I’m very pleased with it. I will buy more of them.

  4. David F. (verified owner)

    Light weight, good price, and received it quickly!

  5. James P. (verified owner)

    Fits perfect and comfortable. Extremely light weight. And very reasonable price.

  6. Sean C. (verified owner)

    The curve and size small fit me very well with having a 5’7 165lb frame. The weight makes it excellent for movement and doesn’t weigh on your shoulders like plates made of other materials. If you’re looking for quality III+ plates at a good price RMA is the way to go.

  7. Anonymous (verified owner)

    Very light and seem well made. M plates fit perfectly in my M Crye JPC 2.0

  8. Joe S. (verified owner)

    very comfortable fit and the weight of the plates isn’t bad either. The plates are great so far.

  9. Anonymous (verified owner)

    Came as described. Best plates for the money.

  10. Kristina W. (verified owner)

    I got a little impatient, but got the product in a reasonable time. Cory does a great job fielding questions. Will refer friends to RMA.

  11. Henry (verified owner)

    These are awesome plates! The multi-curve and foam padding is super comfortable and the plates are pretty light. One thing to be aware of, though, these plates are thick. I bought the Large size and mine measure 1.2” (like the description says) but between the thickness and the multi-curve, it was a tight squeeze in my PC. They did fit, it just took some effort to get them in. RMA was also quick to answer my questions! Overall very happy with the plates and company!

  12. Greg (verified owner)

    Great product, light, and professionally made.

  13. TYLER (verified owner)

    Upgraded my plates from Hesco 4401’s to these RMA 1092’s and am so happy I made the switch. These plates are close to half the weight of my Hesco’s and the multi-curve is so much more comfortable than single curve.

    These plates are a little on the thick side at 1.2″, but I honestly don’t notice the extra thickness. They’re snug in my Spiritus LV119 Covert but still slid in fairly easily. Great plates, great company. 100% recommend for anyone wanting to shed some poundage off their setup.

  14. Ryan S. (verified owner)

    These plates are awesome, really comfortable, and light weight. They fit into my carrier perfect. Best plates for the money.

  15. Steven Miller (verified owner)

    Having purchased two of these plates, a front and rear I believe the value for the money to be excellent. The lead time for delivery was clearly stated on the website and RMA Armament was right on schedule.

  16. Anonymous (verified owner)

    Solid. Hope I don’t end up actually using it to stop bullets, but it seems like it would do the trick.

  17. Anonymous (verified owner)

    Great plates that are a good balance of lightweight and affordable. They fit nicely in a JPC 2.0 even though they are little on the thick side.

  18. James (verified owner)

    Fits small-size Crye JPC2.0 perfect. Tight, but fits neatly once shimmied in. Super comfy, curved is advisable. Very happy with the product overall. Hope they work if I ever need them for more than a workout!

  19. Rob K. (verified owner)

    Extremely light and fit snugly in a JPC.

  20. Evan B. (verified owner)

    Best deal going right now. Light, comfortable. A little thick but fits in the Slickster. Looking to order another set.

  21. Chloe R. (verified owner)

    Absolutely amazing! Lightweight and good quality. These work really well for me as a woman, although I am looking forward to the female specific armor y’all have coming.

  22. Andrew J. (verified owner)

    Amazing product at an amazing cost. Would buy again, but hopefully I don’t need to.

  23. Christopher Pike (verified owner)

    Arrived as described and fit well in a Ferro Slickster. Lightweight and comfortable

  28. Shahzeb (verified owner)

    These are the absolute best plates for the money! Light, multicurve, 3+ protection against most common threats in CONUS. There is a lead time however, RMA shipped it within the time frame packaged perfectly. Highly recommend

  29. nobabymomadrama (verified owner)

    Excellent extra large plates in 3+ rating what more could I ask for, they are a bit thick though so they barely fit in my Shellback SF carrier but I managed so Oh well at least they are light!!! 🙂

  30. Anonymous (verified owner)

    A bit of a tight fit in the Warrior LPC but works great

  31. Neal (verified owner)

    Way awesome plates! Super comfy!

  32. Anonymous (verified owner)

    Awesome plates at an incredible price. They fit well in my JPC 2.0.

  33. Cameron (verified owner)

    Great Product and Great Service!

  34. Patrick (verified owner)

    Lightweight and comfortable, the plates arrived within the time frame listed on the website. Very glad I went with these over steel. I am 6’2″ but have a long torso, the lg sapi fit better than 11×4 steel armor and are about half the weight. Would reccomend to anyone looking for 3+ protection that doesnt want 15 to 20lbs in their rig. Fit my lg Shellback Tactical SF perfectly.

  35. Josh (verified owner)

    Hands down the best armor out there. Amazing quality. Shipped exactly when the lead time was up and the multi curve feels great and it’s not bad at all weight wise. Highly recommend RMA to anyone.

  36. Scott (verified owner)

    Exceptionally well made; exceptionally light. The multi-curve and padding make these plates very comfortable – they can be worn for extended periods without fatigue.

    They fit a medium LBT 6094 very well. Nearly unnoticeable weight addition to a carrier – you’ll be surprised when you pick it up.

  37. Bryan (verified owner)

    Excellent balance of protection with moderate weight. The plate is on the lighter side of the weight spectrum but still offers solid rifle protection. It is a great value and a good buy at the price. It is one of the better rifle plates available on the market today.

  38. Joseph (verified owner)

    Quality American made product. I would not trust my life to the many Chinese made knockoffs out there now. Go with American made RMA. It’s good stuff. Bought the Iii+ and although the wait time was a while based on demand, it was worth it.

  39. Anonymous (verified owner)

    By far the Best plates for the price! Nij .07 tested

  40. MICHAEL (verified owner)

    Best bang for the buck multi curve plates. They work well in my LV119.

  41. Albert B. (verified owner)

    Lightweight and they fit perfectly into the shell back. I use them when working out.

  42. Richard M. (verified owner)

    100 times better than the Steel plates these replaced
    Lighter better fit and ceramic versus steal.
    And affordable what’s not to like?

  43. Jake P. (verified owner)

    Great light weight armor, I’ve worn this in my fully loaded carrier for 12+ hours straight with minimal discomfort. Highly recommend.
