AR500 Armor® Level III+ Lightweight ALSC Body Armor 10" x 12"
- Product Review (submitted on April 12, 2018):
I’m new to body armor; been shooting for 3+ decades but only recently decided it was time to invest in some real ppe. After a year of research as to what type & brand of plates & carrierwould best suit my needs & budget I decided on the 10x12 AR500 level III+ ALSC with buildup coat for my front plate & the flat plate w/o buildup for my back plate. I chose a Shellback Banshee Rifle in multicam for my pc. I am very, very pleased with all of my decisions. The AR500 plates are of very high quality & once donned much more comfortable than I ever anticipated. The Banshee is exactly what I wanted as well, very easy to don & doff. Double stitched & built in the USA.
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.
