Replacement for same plates. Very light! Thank you!
James Harmer (verified owner) –
I am so glad I finally purchased this product. My plate carrier has been so heavy and miserable utilizing steal plates. I honestly cannot even feel the weight of the new plate. The only thing I really notice is the thickness which is no big deal.
Thomas (verified owner) –
Extremely light and comfortable armor. Quite thick, but compressed a little when pressed on. Squeezes into a 6094a very well, but you’ll probably need to adjust your cummerbund for the difference in thiccness.
