    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.

  7. claude b. (verified owner)

    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

  10. Earl (verified owner)

    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.

  11. Nick C. (verified owner)

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

  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.

    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)

  68. Bob g. (verified owner)

    It’s a beautiful thing. I was comparing products and I kept ending up back to RMA. Well worth the little wait time. .. (Wuhan assisted I’m sure) but firs in Carrier perfect and isnt ridiculously heavy. I’d give more stars.. definitely recommend.

  69. Michael Buck (verified owner)

    This is my 1st set of plates and I wanted lvl 4 ceramic protection.
    I am very glad that I found and went with RMA’s 1155 set, they are constructed very well, they are a great price and I received them about 23 days after placing my order so needless to say I was more than satisfied in every aspect.
    I know these are their “heavier” plates @ 8.3lbs each but once loaded up and on the setup does not feel all that heavy to me.
    I would definitely buy this set again. (I’ve already been justifying it in my head)
    Thank you RMA!!!

    Awesome and Top Notch. I’d buy again!

  75. Henry (verified owner)

    Came faster than expected even with the posted lead times. Super well done on the packaging during shipping with zero concerns over any damage to the plates. The plates themselves are much lighter than expected and fit my existing carrier perfectly. Will for sure buy another set for work once the OT checks hit.

  76. Mason S. (verified owner)

    Good plates that are on the heavier side, good pricing too.

  77. Owen Kruger (verified owner)

    Quality

  78. Darnell N. (verified owner)

    Couldn’t be more happier with my plates. On the heavier side but these are level 4 plates and I’m not trying to do CrossFit. Spent a lot of time researching and trying to find the best bang for my buck without breaking my bank and came across RMA. So glad I purchased. Very happy with my plates and also a plus to support a fellow veteran.

  79. Joe (verified owner)

    I’m very satisfied with these plates. Shipped in much shorter time than most companies (~4 weeks), and they are extremely high quality. I haven’t seen their stopping power firsthand, but from my research and seeing and feeling the quality, I am willing to put my life behind these.

    BOTTOM LINE: Arguable the best Ceramic Multicurve Level IV Plates, quick to ship too

  80. Anonymous (verified owner)

    Incredible armor, especially for the price!

  81. Chad (verified owner)

    Nicely wrapped, came packaged well. Reasonably light for the price and protection. Great budget option to stop all common rifle threats. Fits VERY snugly in my Ferro Slickster, but does fit with just a bit of work.

    Definitely heavier than I expected but not bad once you adjust the carrier. The fit though is super comfortable. Also works well with armor behind it.
    The price is amazing for a level IV plate.
    Can’t wait till my side plates arrive Definitely a company I trust with my life thanks rma

    Good price point for level 4 protection. Plates fit well in LBT 6094G3V2 large carrier. I live in Iowa and I like that they are made here.

  89. Dalton W. (verified owner)

    Very comfortable and fit in my 5.11 tactec no problem!

    Great price and great quality. The plates are very heavy though. I’m aware RMA offers lighter IV plates, but the price difference is way to high.

  91. Jamey Spears (verified owner)

    I being Ex Tactical LE have body-armor kits already, but I heard about this company (RMA) and then I saw some YouTubes one of which sold me!
    It defeated a 338 round…Not just one, multiple rounds…SOLD, I’m a Believer, I mean you’d be dead anyway from a 338 hitting your torso, but for lesser more common threat rounds, You’re GOOD!

  95. Anonymous (verified owner)

    Nice looking plates, Great quality, received the plates soon than expected. I definitely would recommend these.

  96. Richard (verified owner)

    Outstanding quality and dependability while still being affordable. You can find plenty of independent tests on YouTube on top of the NIJ certification. Also the lead time for the 1155 is unheard of in the current climate we’re in. Other armor companies can be 2-3 times longer. So if you’ve been on the fence or procrastinating on placing an order…stop and just do it. Waiting will get you nowhere except deeper into regret as this country continues on the current path.

    Expedient turn around, fast shipping, exactly as described.

    Perfect addition to my gear, arrived sooner then what the website stated THANK YOU. Hope I never take a hit but if I do I know I’ll be protected and continue in the first, thank you RMA for a awesome product at a great price!

  99. Jason H. (verified owner)

    While I cannot give an 100% honest review yet due to the fact that I haven’t been shot in the plates, they fit and feel great! If I ever do get shot in the plates, and they work, I will for sure give a great review. If they do not work, well, I probably won’t be doing too much reviewing afterwards.

  100. Daniel (verified owner)

    These are some of the best plates I’ve ever used. The price is unbeatable for the quality.
    I hope that RMA ends up making 6X8 plates of this caliber.

  101. Michael T. (verified owner)

    Outstanding. Not tested personally, however fit and finish was the best.

    These are the best level IV plates anywhere, since they are rated for multiple hits of .30-06 AP.

  103. jordanesposito318 (verified owner)

    Love these plates, I ordered a set with Shellback SF carrier and I couldn’t be happier, its definitely comfortable to wear and I’m confident that if ever needed the plates will do the job flawlessly. I definitely plan on ordering another set soon. There is no such thing as too much ammo , and ill definitely say the same about armor, especially of this quality

  104. Jacob (verified owner)

    These are fantastic plates, no BS “cheat ring” of foam like knockoff plates, and NIJ certified protection for nearly the same price of some of those other companies that rely on word play and paid YouTube reviews to sell products. Absolutely no regrets on this purchase!

  112. Eric L. (verified owner)

    Super happy with my 1155 plates. They are not the lightest thing out there, but I’m OK with that due to their performance especially with multiple strikes. Will be purchasing for the wife and daughter real soon

  120. Daniel (verified owner)

    I’m sure it works and is exactly as advertised, but it’s heavy! Just know what you’re using it for, if you’re going to be walking around with this all day you might want to consider getting something later. However if you’re just using it to get to safety you’ll be fine

  121. Jay G. (verified owner)

    Got these for tactical games and the weight is great on these plates. Probably didn’t need them to be ballistic rated but if your going to buy plates they might as well be ballistic rated for as high as you can get .

  122. Anonymous (verified owner)

    Seem good, hope I never find out.

  123. Andrew Vance (verified owner)

    RMA is absolute top tier when it comes to plates and you cannot go wrong. I am so happy I purchased from them, they also communicate with the customer so fast and are incredibly friendly. When you purchase from RMA, I actually feel like they care about me and that is nice because you don’t usually get that from other companies. Shipping was great and overall would recommend 110%

  124. villalobosvfs (verified owner)

    Great value and quick lead time! I hope I never have to actually test them out. But these days anything is possible.

    Great Product, lead time was exactly as posted would definitely buy again

  126. Nicholas G. (verified owner)

    Love the armour seems like good construction to me. The reason for the 4 is it a bit on the heavy side, but for level four armour it’s worth the weight for the protection.

  127. Justin C. (verified owner)

    Going to get a set of the larger plates as well. Fits nice but would like more coverage
