Review from Zachary Domka Review by Zachary Domka
I chose AR500 plates over HDPE plates because I didn't want to spend my nights driving a car with an inch between my lower back and the seat. Additionally, I will only need to buy one set of steel plates to last me through the rest of my career, while other types of armor have 5-7 shelf lives.

I bought two of these plates; one flat with no build-up and one curved with build-up. The flat plate is very thin and comfortable to sit against. The curved plate is about twice as thick. All the information on the website, regarding dimensions and weight, appeared to be accurate as compared to the product I received. (Posted on 8/4/2016)
Review from Travis Review by Travis
These plates are better than expected. Great quality, great performance (per Utube vids), and are lighter and thinner than I expected. I purchased the base coat model, and these things are thin! Fit great in my Banshee plate carrier. Wouldn't buy another brand, AR500, great job! (Posted on 8/4/2016)
