You must have the xl carrier for these plates. They do not fit in any other type of carrier. You have to order or already have a 11"x14" carrier or you will be SOL. The plates with carrier 3x magazines 5.56, med kit 2x g17 mags, radio, flash light, 2x flash, 1xsmoke and soft armor is 40lbs +so have good fitness. these are a good in expensive altering rice to ceramic. If your planning on being in your kit for 12hrs+ spend more get the poly plates. But if you need a grab n go carrier or your a LEO responding to active shooter these are awsome.
