    Very light weight and well made. I carry it in my laptop bag daily. Thankfully I haven’t had to use it. I would love to see a III+ plate made like it.

    I had come across this company by watching several YouTube videos of people testing different body armor plates with different caliber guns. I was originally looking for the backpack insert for my son,it was sold out at the time so I bought this one because it was in my price range . Extremely fast shipping lightweight and fits in his backpack had to put a jacket under the plate to lift it up some to provide better coverage but fits well in his back back is light weight and can’t tell that it’s there.

    The box they came in is heavier than the plates themselves. I haven’t been shot wearing these plates, I’ll revise my review if they don’t work… you know or not 💀
