Our armor ballistic core performance and balance of achieving multi-hit performance within its designated threat level; rounds exceeding the armors limitations and threat level or extreme multi-hit scenarios may cause the armor to crack upon impact. This result is normal and significantly reduces the rounds velocity, if not completely defeating, opposed to through and through penetration.

- Review from Don Review by Don
The 8'x10' Level 3+ plates are the appropriate size for my growing son.
Given the longevity (shelf life) and quality of the plates themselves they will be able to be handed down to others in the family when he outgrows them. I couldn't be happier; unless the lead time was less.
Other than that, AR500, keep pushing that envelope. You are doing a fine ob of providing an excellent product at a reasonable price and I appreciate your contribution to the economy and freedom of this country... (Posted on 7/28/2015)
