    Received fast, fits well into most plate carriers and great quality for the price

  2. Anonymous (verified owner)

    Affordable lvl 4 plates that are amazing quality.

  3. dominic (verified owner)

    Shipped fast, comfy to wear for extended periods. Kinda heavy, but other than that, solid. Would recommend.

  4. Anonymous (verified owner)

    Only downside is the weight which is hard to complain about once you see the price.

  5. Anonymous (verified owner)

    As a larger man the multi curve plate in 11” x 14” is difficult to find. But I’m very happy with the purchase I made from RMA.

  6. Kyle F. (verified owner)

    Super happy with these very comfortable! Easy fit in standard PCs. I’ve recommended these to anyone looking for a quality and TESTED person looking into armor.

  7. Anonymous (verified owner)

    Very comfortable and fits just right. A little on the heavier side of armor, but for the price and the fit, it’s a good trade off. Also fits the Esstac Daedon Plate carrier and it has side-to-side coverage (not buffred by padding).

    This is two reviews in 1
    Carrier: fcpcV5
    Plates: 1155 mc

    Plates are THICC, heavy, and well made. Much more comfortable than the single curve. Putting them into a fcpcV5 was tough because the plates are so thick. I went to a fcpcV5 from a cheap bulky airsoft condor vest, and I love everything about the fcpcV5 except for the lack of padding. Lack of padding with these chonky plates, while tolerable, can at times be annoying. I’m looking for a good against the body, outside vest padding solution. I’m satisfied with both purchases. I would buy both again. I only wish I had known the fcpcv5 didn’t gave any padding what so ever so I could have eliminated the small padding problem from the get go.

    Great company though, I’m looking forward to my next purchase from you all as I Will buy from again. I’ll experiment with something a little bit lighter next time.

  10. John E. (verified owner)

    Simply the BEST. You can go cheaper, but do you want to bet your life on it? I don’t. With RMA, you know it’s the best. I use the multicurve plate on the front and a single curve on the back. Very comfortable.

  11. Anonymous (verified owner)

    These plates are level 4, multi curve, multi hit rated, and very cost effective These plates were my first ceramic uhmwpe hybrid plate purchase. They are far lighter and comfortable than those S*** steel plates. I spent three days wearing my carrier with these. Knowing three things.. I was comfortable, protected from high level threats, and my wallet wasn’t hurt.

  12. Jamison (verified owner)

    Absolutely astounding product and customer service. Received this order initially and the lycra on the sides had been damaged in spots due to rough handling by the folks delivering it. I contacted customer service at RMA and they quickly started the process of exchanging those plates for undamaged ones and got them replaced within a week or so. These were the first plates I’ve ever bought and chose them because of how effective they were in test videos I had seen and how affordable they are. Sure they are little on the heavy side but you’re getting an extremely well-made and effective plate for a great price, no free lunches. I’ll probably sound like a shill/cliched with this… but in the sea of confusion and snake oil that the body armor market is, I’m truly glad I chose RMA as who I purchased from. 10/10 would & WILL buy from again.

    First off I would like to say Thank you to Houston which he helped me along the process in ordering. Ordering from Hawaii he answered all my questions and was very professional. Didn’t try to up-sale me anything. Which means they believe in there products. When I received my shipment I must say they really know how to ship things. I was very impressed how my 1155mc plates came. You can tell they really care. Now the actual product. Very smooth design. Fits perfect like a glove in my vest. The multi curve is awesome. Really contours to your body. I have total faith in these plates. RMA well done in your products and your workers. 10 stars imo!!! You’ll get my business again for sure!! Thank you…

  37. Anonymous (verified owner)

    Great plates! The multi curve is comfortable and honestly the weight isn’t that bad. So what it’s 8lbs? Most people don’t even wear side plates and side plates even with the lightest plates are on average a total of 15lbs. Assuming you have level 4 plates with that set up. Front and back on this only adds to 16lbs and plus side plates equates to 21lbs. I’d buy these again too if I needed them.

    Easily some of the most comfortable armor I’ve worn. Yes its heavy but its a trade off for the price point you’re getting the plates at. I’ve worn them for an entire day in 95°+ heat and could’ve worn them longer if needed.

  43. Kyle J. (verified owner)

    Best in the business. Better than All the other top names and a price that can’t be beat!

    Well so far I haven’t been able to test them out and that’s a good thing, because I hope I never feel like I need to put on level iv body armor to be safe and I also hope I never ever get shot at, but hopes and dreams being what they are, and myself being a pragmatic man, I decided to buy plates I may never wear. These ones are super heavy, 16lbs! I use them as a weighted vest during workouts. I deducted 2 points because 2 plates came damaged. Very mild tears in the wrapping. I was disappointed but I knew it was only cosmetic. I called in and what a surprise! Someone answered the phone after 2 or 3 rings. I was told by a super friendly and likable US based rep that they make sure they don’t go out like that but it could have happened during shipping. He said I was free to send it back for a re-wrap. The amount of damage done, it’s not worth the hassle, very minor. So I added a point back for excellent customer service

    All in all I loved buying from RMA – fast shipping, amazing customer service, great products. I bought some
    Level III (1lb pistol rated plates) from a competitor because they were in stock and very light – and I’m not kidding it took 5 weeks to ship – and these were in stock! If I ever need plates again, RMA all the way!

  45. Anonymous (verified owner)

    My only regret is skimping on the first plate and not getting 2 multicurves. They are a Lil heavy but dependable. I run a Crye SPC in a maritime environment and the plate covers have held up to the elements just fine. Definitely upgrading to a lighter version of these when I can afford to

  46. Leslie Horton (verified owner)

    Plates came in exactly as advertised. The multi curve fits very comfortably for me.

    My only concern would have to be the shipping. The box had very little protection against drops and we know sometimes the delivery people like to quickly toss a box or two. Nothing seem to be wrong with mine, but with the life saving nature of the product, it would go a long way ensuring the peace of mind with a little extra padding or bubble wrap. Just my two cents.

    Otherwise, great product so far. Thanks RMA!

  50. Hank T. (verified owner)

    These seem to be awesome plates for the price point. They’re on the heavy side but the multicurve of the plates helps them carry well. I’m currently using them in a Ferro Concepts Slickster. The plate bags fit both the SAPI and Swimmer cut plates reasonably well. The swimmer cut plate leaves just the right amount of space in the shoulder pocket for good stock placement. Big thanks to RMA for listening to consumers and making a multicurve swimmer cut plate. One gripe I have was having a slight tear in the edge of one plate when delivered. Didn’t notice any damage to the plate material so I just covered the tear with a bit of tape. The other is weight, but I understand that just about any lvl 4 plate in this price range is going to have some weight. Overall these plates seem to be of great quality and a great price point. I will likely buy another set in the future and have no problem recommending them to others.

    I could not have made a better choice for my first set of body armor. Like many of you l rely on reviews from others to help make the best decisions. The multi curve design is a perfect fit. I’m running these plates on the Velocity System Lt Scarab Platform. It is a perfect match for this armor. Highly reccomend it. Don’t skimp on a. Lower cost set up. You cannot put a price on personal protection. Life is valuable! Thanks guys, keep up the good work.

    These plates exceeded my expectations with comfort and weight. They seem to be very well made and are of high grade materials. The only complaint I have with them was the stitching on the corners of both plates I received were open on the corner. Besides that I highly recommend these plates to anyone from law enforcement to civilians training at a range. Great product.

  58. Anonymous (verified owner)

    Excellent plates for an excellent price. Not too heavy either, but you shouldn’t be making your choice of plate based on weight. If you can’t carry it then you need to work out more.

    Great product, fits perfectly in the K19. Extremely fast shipping, got here on a week and every other company ive seen takes at least a month. Would recommend and i will definitely be purchasing again!

    The multi-curve ceramic plates are one of the comfiest and most fitting I’ve ever felt. A great product that I am glad I got from RMA. Especially after hearing on their practices of seeking to make their plates sturdy rather than sacrifice the durability for less weight.

    Solid delivery. It was packed in a way so that the plates wouldn’t bang against one another during shipping and risk the integrity of the plate. While I haven’t tested it myself the NIJ results will speak for themselves. They do fit in a Medium JPC 2.0 in case you were wondering, although it is very snug. There’s no room for a pad inside the pouch but you really shouldn’t need one running a JPC 2.0 anyways.

  66. Jason V. (verified owner)

    quick delivery. the multi curve is very comfortable. highly recommend!

  67. Dakotah (verified owner)

    Always good to have an extra set of plates. They’ve got some bulk to them, but unless you’re willing to be in the four-digit range for the lightweight IV’s, this is your best bet. Ordered early AM, shipped out mid-afternoon. Had to get them quick as a static address is a thing of the past for me at the moment. RMA is the real deal, especially if you’ve got critical deadlines.

    They’ll fit in a Size Medium JPC 2.0, and a Size Large JPC 1.0. Easily fit into FS Strandhogg & Bullfrog.

    This is my second set of 1155 MC and that should speak for itself. They are well made and I firmly believe they will do their job should the time come. They are currently in an Agilite K19 and the weight isn’t even noticed. They were a snug fit for the K19 but not an issue. The curved vs original 1155 are night and day and I strongly recommend the curved. For the people that are concerned about weight… yes, they are a bit heavy, but these are designed to stop a myriad of rounds and I believe they will. I don’t have any issues with the size or weight and I’m perfectly content with my purchase.

    Seems like the best product for your buck, hopefully I never have to test it. The only thing I left a star off for was because the nylon/neoprene/whatever cover was damaged and separating at the edges of the plate. Not a big deal I think because it’s in a carrier, so I didn’t return it, but overall almost a perfect order. Easy to overlook because of a very reasonable price.

    Best armor ever!

  97. bravozero588 (verified owner)

    Decided to get the multicurve version of the 1155’s I already have and like quite a bit. Once they arrived, I took my older single curve plates out of my Defense Mechanisms MEPC and popped these multicurve plates in, and my goodness do they make a world of difference in comfort. The curves at the top and bottom of the plate press it against you so you feel the entire plate resting against you. They weigh the same and fit the same in the MEPC. The only negative I’ll give the plates is the QC could be a little better, both plates had different MFG dates and one of them is a few millimeters taller, while the other had a somewhat sharp edge on the lower left corner which I put some electrical tape over in case it tears the plate fabric. Other than that, these are a big win and I hope RMA sells the sh*t out of these.

  98. Andrew Beveridge

    Incredibly impressive bang-for-your-buck when considering this product’s level of protection, comfort, and customer service. RMA did an amazing job getting an issue with my order corrected quickly and my order shipped even more quickly! I’ve already recommended RMA to my friends and will continue to use them for any future armor purchases!

    Fits better than gen 1 single curve plates. Same weight, size and thickness. Awesome company and fast ship times.

  100. sanleunam (verified owner)

    Having the gen1 1155 for almost a year now and they are great but as soon as they announce the new ones I had to upgrade. The plates in itself are great the new Multicurve makes a huge diference when wearing it all day. For reference I’m 5 10″ 190lb it provides all the coverage for my needs. The reason why I gave it 4 out of 5 stats is that on my 1st order UPS manage to damage the plates not RMAs fault, on the second go around the plates were better packaged and protected but one of the plates came with a small nick in the edge (cover). Then again this is all part of the shipping process at times and with the Covid situation I think RMA provides the best quality plates for the price without the insane lead times of other companies. Definitely will come and get another pair in the future.

  101. smith17qrf (verified owner)

    Plates are very comfortable. Same weight as gen1 #1155 single curve. Fits well in multiple carriers. Great product, phenomenal customer service, and shipping was high speed AF. As a former Operator I Trust My Life To RMA.
