AR500 Armor® Level IIIA Backpack Armor 11" x 15" Rimelig Soft Body Armor

Product Review (submitted on August 3, 2018):
Ordered on March 1st, received on May 18th but it said 4 week lag time. I wrote them once I started to get nervous that I had been swindled but they responded right away saying "currently orders for armor have about a 4.5 all the way to 10 week lead time depending on the level and type of the armor," which was reassuring. It was a much longer amount of time to receive my order but it was actually delivered, in about 14 weeks and appears to be free of flaws and high quality.

Tom from customer service also said in his response, "Since you have level IIIA armor I would expect 7-8 weeks from order palcement [sic] before this ships." So there appears to be two separate periods, a lead time and a processing time maybe. Maybe I misunderstood or overlooked something that explained this better.

Anyway, I was very happy with the 11" x 15" Level IIIA Rimelig Backpack Armor that fits perfectly in my briefcase just as advertised. I even ordered more for my home and my office now that I know AR500 is an honest company but just to expect a much longer wait period than the "ESTIMATED LEAD TIME" which is fine because I don't anticipate having to put it to use and hopefully never will.

I even recommended this product to a coworker for their children's backpacks which is appreciated.
