AR500 Armor® Level III Side Plate 6" x 8"

Product Review (submitted on August 11, 2014):
Excellent in every way. Because I'm overweight I had to purchase two more curved side plates to cover my backside underneath my shoulder blades in addition to the two 6x8 plates I have covering my front sides and abdomen to cover my backside. I feared the carrier wouldn't be able to accommodate the extra plates but still I was able to squeeze them in there. They overlap the main curved backplate a little but it's negligible. I was worried about being able to bear the extra weight given that I'd already purchased the largest plates AR500 had to offer. I barely noticed the extra weight my vest now weighs 34lbs-35lbs. I feel like the man of steel when wearing it. Now if only AR500 would make a helmet made of the same material we warriors would be set.
