Great product! Review by gearhead0621 Verified Purchase
These plates are heavy but you can tell the build quality is top notch. Hoping to never have to use them, but nice to know they are there. Have this with the XL plate carrier and everything works great together. (Posted on 3/17/2017)
Review from Larry Dodd Review by Larry Dodd
Since money was tight I ordered one plate. Still waiting on the second. Was received earlier than I had anticipated. Packing was excellent, product arrived as ordered. Inspection reveals no flaws that I can detect. It is about as heavy as I expected. When the second one gets here and the XL carrier I will put them thru the test. Thanks guys for an awesome product.

Review from Gold586 Review by Gold586
I received the plates in a reasonable amount of time along with a plate carrier XL. I am not that experience, but the rear plate sits lower in the carrier then I would like. Adjustment straps I can not find? Plates are well constructed and the over all weight is very acceptable for wearing. For less experience users you should do a video in proper positioning of the plates in a carrier. How to do it video? love the over all product. (Posted on 8/3/2016)

When these arrived after a short ten week wait I was thrilled. They are worth every penny. Now lets hope I never need them. Hope this helps. (Posted on 7/29/2016)
Review from Ed Review by Ed
Lucky enough so far and hopefully I never have to comment on how well the AR500 plate with anti-spall coating holds up to steel penetrators. But the workmanship appears to be top notch and the plate sure is heavy. It took a very long time to get from AR500 Armor. I should have ordered all four plates instead of just one. Lessons learned three more will go on order. Keep up the good work. (Posted on 6/16/2016)

Review from Allen Review by Allen
Well made , ordered the 11 X 14 for a long torso, fit nice in the plate carrier and cover the vital areas, front back and sides. (Posted on 1/11/2016)
Review from JDMHero47 Review by JDMHero47
Ordered a front/back set, both with extra coating. Got them because 'local' range is a bit remote w/o a RO, & SO was worried. Sitting in the XL carrier, the plates were a tight fit, but comfortable to wear.
I don't have any gear hanging off of the carrier, but it's not something you will forget you're wearing. Reminds me of the old-school dentist's protection during X-rays.
For the level of protection you get, the weight is relatively insignificant, but I'm only a bench/table shooter. Definitely not for 3-gun, unless you're conditioned for the bulk & weight.
Compared to ceramic plate armor, these are better hands-down, since they are multi-hit capable for the rated calibers. (Posted on 12/11/2015)
Review from Zak Review by Zak
Well built, and lighter than expected, but you definitely know they're there. I still have almost my full range of motion while wearing both front and back plates. Incidentally, I had ordered one plate, and they shipped me two. When I emailed them about it, they told me to call in to settle it. About 4mins on the phone, and i had purchased the second plate. Speedy responses and service, both on the phone and online. All in all, great product, great service, great prices, and great company. (Posted on 9/30/2015)

Heavy but they do inspire confidence. Watch the videos or test them for yourself - these are impressive stopping power with large coverage area for when the chips are down. These are not for high-speed, low-drag movement, but they'll take multiple hits and keep on going, allowing you to keep on going when other armor may not. (Posted on 8/26/2015)
Review from Todd Review by Todd
They look well made. I ordered the 11x14 with coating. The weight is something you will have to be prepared for as these steel plates are heavy to wear. You do feel like the will stop a bullet though. (Posted on 8/8/2015)

Review from Abe Rodriguez Review by Abe Rodriguez
I ordered front and rear plates with the front one having xtra coating. They are awesome looking besides the fact being level 111+ Ares amory, Sootch00 and our gov. provided the incentive to get these plates. If you listen to the news you will understand its better to have these and not need them, than to not have the plates and need them. Besides AR500 Amor has great lectures on the use and wear of these awesome plate plus money wise and quality received this deal cannot be beaten. Every week we should find a way to wear these plates and condition our bodies to deal with this amor. Great product, even if your budget is close to zero, figure and get at least 1 plate at a time. Consider it a form of family insurance. (Posted on 4/28/2015)
