    Exactly what the description says. Had it on my doorstep in less than 36 hours and I ordered at like 3:00pm on a Saturday and did not pay extra for shipping! For the price the weight and level of protection is awesome!

    Got these before they went on backorder, but the shipping was extremely fast I had them within 3-4 days. The weight for the lvl4 plates is as advertised and they sit right in the middle of other lvl 4 plates in terms of cost to weight ratio. I performed a Tap and torque test when received and they passed. Construction appears to be quality and numerous videos of live testing confirm Guard Dogs claims. Will be buying a 2nd set for my wife in the future.

    What an amazing company. When looking to purchase I saw Tim kennedy’s video review and I was shocked. I then went to purchase based upon more digging but unfortunately was on backorder. I explained to the company I was LEO and given recent mass shooting events I was hoping to get it sooner than later. Next thing I know about 6 days later a package was at my door. Thank you GDBA family yall are truly amazing!

    More than I expected. Highly recommended. Very quick shipping. Do not buy another brand till you check these guys out. Two thumbs up.

  21. Tim Choate (verified owner)

    Excellent service and beyond excellent product! I was debating between these plates and a different brand that were nearly 3 times the cost of these. I couldn’t be happier with the choice I made with Guard Dog. A huge thank you to everyone at this company for not only making my experience of purchasing the plates great, but also supplying life saving equipment to the average everyday patriot. Keep up the good work ladies and gentlemen!

    Wonderful, I’ve worn life preservers that weighed more! Wore around for a few hours in a k19 completing mods and chores with none of the usual drawbacks of donning a plate carrier.

  33. Brandon (verified owner)

    Great product. Excellent customer service. Highly recommend.

  34. Jordan (verified owner)

    Lighter than my steel plates and more comfortable.

  35. Ariel O. (verified owner)

    Great overall experience. I had a minor issue with my first order but customer service replied almost immediately and were absolutely amazing to work with. My issue was resolved super fast. I then bought a second set. I couldn’t be happier with my purchase and the plates fit perfect in my carriers. I have already recommended them to multiple family members and friends.

    Faster shipping than Amazon. Not a joke. Insanely fast shipping. Bought after I seen Tim Kennedy’s review on YouTube. The plate is going in a backpack because it only weighs 5lbs and has spall guard!

    My experience with Guard Dog has been truly exceptional. From ordering online to it’s blazing expedited shipping speed. In my opinion, they have set the bar in which online businesses should operate at. This was my first purchase from them and it won’t be the last. As for the product itself, it arrived in excellent condition. With that said, I have had no need to experience the customer service end of their business, which I can imagine would would be of equal caliber. Thanks be to God that I haven’t needed it to be put the plates to the test, however the video demo provided by Tim Kennedy of the product clearly demonstrated it’s capabilities. If it was good enough for Tim, it’ll be good enough for me. Keep up the outstanding work Guard Dog!

    The plates seem good…I haven’t tested them. The customer service is top notch though. My plates were mislabeled and I initially thought they were thr wrong plates. GDBA responded promptly and even hooked me up with free gear because of it.
