AR500 Armor® Level III+ Side Plate Body Armor 6" x 8"
- Product Review (submitted on December 11, 2015):
Got as part of a full set for the XL carrier.
These fit excellently in the side pouches, and attach well with the MOLL-E straps to the carrier.
They could be a bit taller for a lanky person such as myself, but the bulk & weight seems to be just right the way it is. Ordered them with the Xtra build-up, & I can confirm the statement about the armor lasting more than any other, since the steel plate is in an air-tight seal of PAXCON, which doesn't look like it will breakdown within the next few decades at least.
The plates fit very comfortably, with wiggle room for the rest of the carrier while moving around. I still have 95% of full-range of motion while wearing this setup, and can find no fault with these!
