Great Product and Delivery Review by AG
I recently received my order of the 11x15 Rimelig soft armor and matching trauma pad. Both items appear free of any defect, mars, or even dust! My hope is that is falls apart due to lack of use but I feel more confident that, by carrying these items, I may gain a slight edge in the event they are needed.
There has been a lot of negative feedback regarding AR500's delivery time. 8-10 weeks lead time made me hesitate but I ordered anyway. I received my shipment in 3 weeks (yup, THREE weeks). I don't know what I did right, but thank you to the staff at AR500! I'll be ordering again soon! (Posted on 3/2/2020)
Back pack armor Review by Charles
Bought this backpack armor for My daughter while she was in college. She used it daily. She attended East Stroudsburg University in Stroudsburg, Pa. There was a shooting at the Walmart there while she was in school. She never had to use the armor, BUT< I was happier knowing she had it with her! Well worth the investment for a College Student!

Just be patient waiting for your order Review by Mark Verified Purchase
Ordered on March 1st, received on May 18th but it said 4 week lag time. I wrote them once I started to get nervous that I had been swindled but they responded right away saying "currently orders for armor have about a 4.5 all the way to 10 week lead time depending on the level and type of the armor," which was reassuring. It was a much longer amount of time to receive my order but it was actually delivered, in about 14 weeks and appears to be free of flaws and high quality.

Tom from customer service also said in his response, "Since you have level IIIA armor I would expect 7-8 weeks from order palcement [sic] before this ships." So there appears to be two separate periods, a lead time and a processing time maybe. Maybe I misunderstood or overlooked something that explained this better.

Anyway, I was very happy with the 11" x 15" Level IIIA Rimelig Backpack Armor that fits perfectly in my briefcase just as advertised. I even ordered more for my home and my office now that I know AR500 is an honest company but just to expect a much longer wait period than the "ESTIMATED LEAD TIME" which is fine because I don't anticipate having to put it to use and hopefully never will.

I even recommended this product to a coworker for their children's backpacks which is appreciated. (Posted on 8/3/2018)
Good Product Review by Paul
I bought one for my child's backpack and it fits well. She felt it was light and not intrusive in her backpack. I will buy more for my other children. AR500 did send a 10% coupon with the first order. (Posted on 11/2/2017)
Nice fit in 5.11 covert Review by Nola
I bought this for my 5.11 covert backpack and it fits just right in the water bladder compartment. I did leave the plastic on it putting the opening at the bottom on it to help keep it protected from sweat and water. Also plastic doesn't make any noise while in there. (Posted on 10/18/2017)
Great Armor! Review by Nate
This is the first piece of armor that I have bought. I have to say it is very convenient to carry around in my backpack and it even adds extra padding. I would recommend this to college students and school students! (Posted on 6/16/2017)
