AR500 Armor® Level III+ Lightweight Backpack Armor 11" x 15"

Product Review (submitted on May 3, 2020):
I have been wearing body armor daily in Afghanistan from 2006 to 2019 and I even brought my old set home; however, now that I am home I can't run around town wearing it (but I do keep it handy next to my SR-556). Additionally, it's too dang heavy; therefore, my son told me about the AR500 11x15 Lightweight Backpack Plate and I ordered it with the PAXCON Coating. I received it earlier than expected and I placed a Spall Blocker on the Strike Face and a Trauma Pad on the back of the plate (I know that I don't need the spall blocker because of the paxcon coating but what the heck). The plate with inserts fits into my Glock AS02000 Backpack perfectly but it is heavier than expected but I am also carrying a compact 45 ACP, extra mags, knife, flashlight, and other essential items (I still need to order the small first aide kit) which adds to the total weight. But now I feel that I the ability to protect myself when running around town because sometimes it's more dangerous here than in Afghanistan. Great product and worth the price. Thanks Tyler and the AR500 Armor® Team.
