Product Review (submitted on July 30, 2015):
If you are a person who "does not feel it" when a hypodermic needle delivers medicine or draws blood, you "will not feel it" when carrying this around.

I am over 6' and approximately 280lbs, and I notice the weight of this plate. I find it manageable because I keep it close to my torso using my backpack's laptop sleeve. When I compare this plate to the lighter and softer IIIA panels and think of the decreased cost and increased protection, this plate feels just a little lighter.
