Our level III+ Lightweight 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.

- Great for natural shouldering of a rifle. Review by Phil
- Outstanding plates Review by aquietdisaster
One final point; a few weeks after I placed my order I called to see what the wait time was looking to be. When I ordered the estimate was 4-6 weeks so I knew I still had a few more weeks to go. The service rep was extremely friendly & helpful; he gave me an estimate of when my order would arrive & sure enough I received them exactly when he said I would. Although I haven’t had any issues I have a feeling AR500 would take good care of me if I did.
Great product & great service. 10/10
Next purchase is going to be a set of trauma plates. No question who I’ll be ordering them from. (Posted on 4/12/2018)

I bought two of these plates; one flat with no build-up and one curved with build-up. The flat plate is very thin and comfortable to sit against. The curved plate is about twice as thick. All the information on the website, regarding dimensions and weight, appeared to be accurate as compared to the product I received. (Posted on 8/4/2016)
