    The anti spall and trauma fit good to the metal armor.

  8. Patrick Quirk (verified owner)

    Very nice fit over the plate, was a tight fit in the Sheppard Body Armor Plate Carrier.

  9. Wayne (verified owner)

    Sleeves arrived quickly (ordered Friday, arrived Monday). Sleeves easily fit over plates and velcroed tight. The padding and spall layer added some thickness, but still was able to fit into a low-pro carrier. I would purchase again.

    Seems like good quality. Knocked 1 star off due to the picture shown on website (dog with sunglasses) is not what was actually received (profile picture of dog). I don’t care that the picture is different, but I don’t like that the website shows one thing and I received something different. I notified Guard Dog of this discrepancy, however it is still not resolved on the website. It shouldn’t be that hard to send the product that is advertised and shown at time of order.

    Can’t wait to try this product with 10 mm

  31. Jamison (verified owner)

    Thicker than standard trauma pads with added spall protection. Even with my thinner than standard steel plates youll have to work them into the carrier. Just due to added material in the pocket. Great product and peace of mind. No doubt if I take a hit that these help make a difference.

    Just what I was looing for in an anti-spall sleeve for AR500 steel plate armor. Thanks for a great product at a great price!

  36. Mitchell C. (verified owner)

    The armor is amazing! Customer service was super fast to reply with any questions I had. An amazing experience with this company. Definitely will be ordering more from them soon!

  37. Guy M (verified owner)

    These fit AR500 Steel Plates, Ceramic, Polyethylene and AL/PE type 10″x12″ plates. Like the back trauma pad and the Kevlar front frag liner. Stitching was excellent. Fits in multiple plate carriers. Mine came with the dog head profile and “Strike Face” lettering logo, looks pretty good. Highly recommended for what these will accomplish.

  38. Blake F. (verified owner)

    Plates fit perfect and feels nice, compliments the Dane carrier perfect!

  39. YuHsien Lin (verified owner)

    Loving the sleeves. Plates fits nicely with zero play in the plate carrier.

    Pads came in the mail in about 3-4 days super fast and in perfect condition, excellent customer service. I will be purchasing again!

  45. Jose P. (verified owner)

    Seems comfortable, could use more padding though!

  46. Nicholas (verified owner)

    Fits my thin level 3 ar500 plates and ALSO surprisingly fit a thicker level 4 plate. The trauma pad on the back feels like it’d help absorb some energy. The kevlar sheet spall sheet on the front feels really thin… I guess I have to trust GD to know what they’re doing, but only giving this 4 out of 5 as I wish I could see some video tests on their site of the spall sheet actually working to do its job. Its so thin that I have my doubts but hey, better than nothing

  47. Filomeno (verified owner)

    Package arrived earlier as expected. Fits right into my testudo carrier with ease. Can’t be happier.

  48. Jason M. (verified owner)

    I upgraded to the level 4+ ridgeback plates. What better than to do but put my old steel plates in this spall guard. They fit right in with no issues. Not too much extra room to move around but, still enough I wasn’t stretching the fabric either. Perfect fit for a spare carrier.

  49. Eric (verified owner)

    The plate fits perfectly as advertised.

  50. Filomeno (verified owner)

    AS sleeve delivered earlier than expected( within a week of placing the order). Seems sturdy. Fits well with my AR500 10×12 A1 plate in Testudo carrier.

  51. Johnny R. (verified owner)

    The trauma pad seems a little thin, but any thinker and there would be more difficulty inserting it into carrier

  54. Kevin Bermijo (verified owner)

    Perfect fit and based off testing I’ve seen, I have full confidence in the product to stop spall.

    It’s the best product I could find. I’d prefer it to be thinner; with less trauma pad thickness and more sheets of Kevlar. As I doubt 4 layers is going to catch anything. Price point of $80 for a set should be less. Please create a video demonstrating the stopping abilities.

  58. Bryan D. (verified owner)

    Haven’t tested it out, but it has great reviews and from everything I can see, it is exactly what i expected. It does fit pretty tight in my carrier but I’d rather have it in there regardless

  59. Mathew McCullough (verified owner)

    Trauma pads are a little larger than I expected but fit well with the ridge back M4+ in the front part of the plate carrier but extremely tight in the rear where it bulges just a little in the middle lower back area. Would be great if the size was shrunk just a little to allow the M4+ and trauma pad combo.

    Fantastic 2-in-1 product. A trauma pad AND spall sleeve. Fits the plates perfectly. Very satisfied customer. Will purchase again for all plates.

  65. Stephen L. (verified owner)

    Fit over my plates and into my vest just fine. I hope to never have to give a report on how well they work for their intended purpose.

  66. Jim S. (verified owner)

    A little thin , but if you tested it, It will do. Great customer service

    Fast shipping, Fragmentation sleeve looks well made fit very well in my carrier. From what I see on youtube it works.

  68. David K. (verified owner)

    Great sleeves. Highly recommend. I was worried they would add too much bulk in the carrier, while snug, the plates still fit well.

  72. Alex Scott (verified owner)

    I haven’t been shot while wearing these (thankfully!) but it gives me greater peace of mind that I’m protected from bullet frag off my steel plates than the anti-frag coating alone. The trauma padding is very comfortable as well.

    2nd purchase from Guard Dog and extremely happy with the quality and customer service. On my first purchase, I reviewed the plate carrier with 2 thumbs up but had just one issue with an item and made mention of it. A week later or so I received a package in the mail with the item I made mention of and truly surprised and amazed me that a company would go a step further. Thank you Guard Dog!

    Good quality feel, nice trauma pad integrated into the bag but they are TIGHT. These just barely fit in my Agilite k19. Sleeve could be thinner in width because I was not the only review stating it. Using standard 10×12 ar500 plates and just cutting it close to fit

  81. Mathew (verified owner)

    When I found AR500 Anti-spall/Trauma pad sleeve from Guard Dog Armor, I was very pleased; too many other companies offer a partial (top 1/3 of plate) covers and none of them offered a combination of the anti-spall/trauma pad. I ordered a total of four sleeves for the systems I have; could not be happier.
    My order was filled the next day and shipped out; could not ask for better customer service. The glitch came from the USPS as they “sat on” the package for two days at the local facility before delivering; this is not Guard Dog’s issue in any way.

    Looks and feels great. Video from CF shows it works good.

    Fit my curved plates perfectly. Had to work to fit the kit in my Veritas carrier however, they fit into the Testudo perfectly. They seem well built, hope I dont have to test them out.

  91. Alex M. (verified owner)

    I’m excited to have this on my steel plates. It was a little bulky fitting into my plate carrier but it was able to squeeze it in there. Other than for that it seems to do its job. Hard to review a product you don’t really want to be utilized. But quality of production seems top notch.

  92. Timothy M. (verified owner)

    Seems like an excellent product, pleased thus far, testing to come…

  95. Timothy Lisa (verified owner)

    If the Kevlar actually wrapped around the top and sides of the spall bag rather than just the front it would be a better design.

  96. Michael G. (verified owner)

    Best spall guard on the market ! 🙂

  97. Anonymous (verified owner)

    Depending on the plate carrier the Sleeve may make the fit a bit rough. But if it does fit, the trauma pad portion provides some extra cushioning. By feel and not experience, the sleeve is made very well and made to be durable.

    Great for AR500 base coated plates

    My son bought base coat steel plate, no spall, they fit the plates great. I hope he never really needs them.
