    High quality armor plates. From a reputable vendor at a great price. What more could anyone ask. Plates fit perfectly in my LBT 6094C. Good contour comfortable to wear for 12 plus hours.

    I love my plates, they are vastly better than others I have seen and picked up on the market.. The customer service also from RMA has been nothing less than wonderful..

  8. Robert Armour (verified owner)

    Excellent plates and value.

  9. john k. (verified owner)

    Very satisfied from construction on plates, to customer service. Great company

    The plates arrived in a timely manner. They were brand new. They weren’t made several months before my order and sitting in storage and then sent to me. They were made after I ordered and sent in a timely manner. The package they came in could’ve had more padding than it did to better protect the plates from underpaid material handlers who can carelessly handle boxes during shipping. Their weight isn’t too terribly bad. I would’ve preferred if they could in a bit larger size but that’s just a personal preference due to my 6’8” tall and large body frame. The plates of course still cover vitals I would just like it if they came in a larger size so they don’t look like I’m wearing size medium plates on my large body frame.
    I rate it a 4 because of the above mentioned. I can’t rate it a 5 because I haven’t seen it get shot and do as advertised.
    Also I think it’s important to note that the product review link was sent to me a few months after I ordered the plates, not the same day I received them. That gives people time to actually have product in hand to see how it really is vs just writing a review right after receiving it.

    Awesome for the money.

  12. Paul E. (verified owner)

    I was well pleased with my purchase from RMA. Great communication from them as well. Thankfully I have not had to see if the plates are the level they say they are.

  13. John Kelly (verified owner)

    Good service. Wish plates were lighter but I understand why for that price point. And wanted to support a Veteran owned small business.

  14. ABE C. (verified owner)

    Best value in ceramic armor. Us made. Fast shipping. What else can I say thanks RMA.

  15. Anonymous (verified owner)

    Great product, fast shipping and great customer service. Great quality. Trusting the product with my life, literally.

  16. Anonymous (verified owner)

    These are fantastic!

  17. Ryan C. (verified owner)

    The facts don’t lie…. superior protection at a superior price. Great construction that makes you wonder why people pay more. 8 lbs, but do some jogging and eat a vegetable. These will stop just about any round, but they aren’t going to stop heart disease.

  18. Daniel (verified owner)

    Great value but heavy

  19. Jason (verified owner)

    Awesome product fits perfectly in my plate carrier should a event occur I know I’ll be protected thanks again RMA.

  20. Anonymous (verified owner)

    Very good armor. It’s well made and fits very well in my entry vest. Would definitely recommend this particular armor if weight is not an issue.

  21. James M. (verified owner)

    Superior quality

  22. Johnathon (verified owner)

    Excellent Product. As a S/O I trust my life to this, you can too.

  23. jose b. (verified owner)

    This feels solid and has handled well with my training, alittle heavy but the weight is worth the protection.

  24. Frank S. (verified owner)

    The best price you’re going to find on honest-to-goodness Lvl4 protection. Construction is excellent.

  25. jason robards (verified owner)

    the whole process was tremendous, great communication

  26. Matthew (verified owner)

    Simple, affordable, NIJ certified… great plates!

  27. Rudy M. (verified owner)

    These coupled with the carrier I purchased are a perfect match. I’ve worn it on two separate evolutions and couldn’t be more happy. My next purchase will be the side plates…

  28. Anonymous (verified owner)

    Weight is not bad for lvl 4 and at the price I can not complain.

    Ephesians 6
    “Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness”
    There is evil in this world, and those who must confront it need to be prepared.

  30. Tim M. (verified owner)

    I’m very happy with the quality of the plates. I believe they will do everything advertised in their description.

  31. Wesley (verified owner)

    Good quality at a good price! I might need a couple more 🙂

  32. David (verified owner)

    Body armor is one of those products you never really know if it works until you are in a catastrophic event….That means it come down to trust! I saw the adverts, and the video tests, and I really liked the idea of a Level IV ceramic (lighter weight), but with the ability to take multiple shots!

    I have bought two sets of these plates from RMA: The first set to check it out, and was very impressed with the form and fit of the plates. They look and feel like quality. I bought a second set for my son for Christmas, and he is in the Army. I believe he will be better served by these RMA plates than the standard issue.

    That is all I can say. It is about trust, and I believe RMA is delivering an excellent product at an excellent price. I plan to buy more over time as I can afford it. Thanks, RMA!

    WOW, a great price and awesome quality, and fast shipping. Hoping never to have to use them, but I know I am covered.

  39. Joel (verified owner)

    Works great for my needs.

  40. Anonymous (verified owner)

    Great plates

  41. BRYAN (verified owner)

    plates match the online description to a tee. shipping was fast, and they were priced well for level 4 plates. Not sure how well they hold up, because i have yet to be shot and hope that does not change

  42. John Young (verified owner)

    Fair price. Easy to wear. Thankfully, it has not been tested and hopefully never will.

  43. Jacques (verified owner)

    Although not actually test as all body armor isn’t by the wearer, looks very reliable.

  44. Frederick M. (verified owner)

    Nice armor at a great price!! Hope to never need it but feel completely confident in its ability.

  45. Anonymous (verified owner)

    I love that these are made to order, not sitting around hoping they will sell. They exactly as advertised and I trust the quality of the work! I would definitely recommend these to others!

  46. Allen P. (verified owner)

    Well made and though I haven’t “used” them in their full capacity, and I hope I don’t, I fee safe wearing them when required for my job.

  47. Anonymous (verified owner)

    Awesome piece of armor, exactly as I pictured. Thank you RMA, you all rock! Take advantage of their last deal on these guys. It’s worth the money. You get a 10 year warranty!

  48. Jed M. (verified owner)

    Fit & feel are as described! I paired mine with a Crye JPC. Haven’t been shot wearing it; so I can’t give a full review.

  49. CESARE M. (verified owner)

    Very well made comfortable plates with a solid cut. I’m so glad I went to RMA other than some of the other modern militiamen brands out there. As a current law enforcement officer and former Marine, I’m very pleased with the life saving equipment I purchased from RMA.

  50. MICHAEL B. (verified owner)

    Super solid armor, brand spanking new when received and very fast shipping. Extremely happy all the way around!

  51. Aaron (verified owner)

    Great product with excellent turn around. Received my plates sooner than I expected. Great quality purchase and addition to my Active Shooter setup. Would highly recommend.

  52. Anonymous (verified owner)

    Quick shipping, excellent quality.

  53. Mike S. (verified owner)

    Great for the value! These plates are definitely on the heavy side but to get level IV NIJ certified ceramics for this price point there will always be trade-offs.

    I cannot speak to the function of the plates under ‘use’ so they say and hope I never get to speak to that!

    Buy with confidence. Delivered exactly at quoted lead time.

  54. Joshua C. (verified owner)

    Very good for the price and fits perfect in my plate carrier a little more heavier than i like them to be but for the price and protection very good plates

  55. Elijah (verified owner)

    Great service and very comfortable plates. Not the lightest but totally manageable. Have not yet had the opportunity to test them but looking forward to it.

  56. Anonymous (verified owner)

    Fantastic armor it is thick feels like it should do the job. Fits my carrier perfect

  57. Andrew (verified owner)

    Fast shipping, great plates at a reasonable weight.

  58. gavin smith (verified owner)

    I ordered my plates and expected it to be around a four week lead time. However, i received them in two. They are definitely high quality and very comfortable to wear versus other plates on the market.

  59. Douglas (verified owner)

    My Agency doesn’t do a very good job at picking out body armor. I thought these would make a good investment into my law enforcement career and they are so far holding up to the task for sitting in my patrol vehicle until I need them.

  60. Ben T. (verified owner)

    Was really impressed with plates. Good lead time and excellent customer service

  61. marcinhachaj (verified owner)
