AR500 Armor® Level IV Composite Body Armor - 10"x12"

Product Review (submitted on December 31, 2017):
The plates are as described. A bit heavy at 7.5 lbs a plate-through in a plate carrier, mags, side armor, etc and you have a 30+lb vest on. The single curve is uncomfortable and doesn't sit close to the body. A triple curve would have been nice. SAPI cut is fine but for non conventional shooting positions, a swimmers or shooter cut would have been nice. Added soft trauma plate would also be advisable if you expect to remain conscious after a strike. They do offer soft trauma so be sure to get that along with the plates. All in all a good value for the price point.
