AR500 Armor® Level III+ Lightweight Patented ASC Body Armor 10" x 12" (6.5lbs)
- Product Review (submitted on August 9, 2016):
I bought a set of these with build up and multi-curve for when I'm assigned to an area where I know theres an increased chance of threats that my daily IIIA vest just can't handle and was overall very pleased. My order was at my door within 5 weeks which blew the 17 week lead time out of the water.
-Weight (if you complain about the weight you haven't worn body armor before, let alone for an extended period of time. Its armor, not a pillow)
-Multi-hit capability that can't be found in ceramic or UHMWPE
-Cut covers the vital areas quite well, unless you are quite tall then the 11X14 will do the trick. Hate to break it to the "big" guys (i would fall into that category too so don't get all bent out of shape) but no matter how much you tack on your vital area remains the same.
-"Multi-curve": The only reason this is in quotes is because I was expecting to have curves a little more similar to those found on sapi plates. Instead there is only a noticeable curve along the "y axis". Regardless, it still fits to the contours of most torsos quite well.
