    Awesome thank you

    I have been exceptionally happy with the Guard Dog people and products. I have 30+ in law enforcement and have rarely had such great service from any company.

    Shipped in less than two days of specified shipping details. Great quality. Did not disappoint. Would highly recommend to anyone!

  7. Lloyd (verified owner)

    The same level of craftsmanship as the larger plates. I may not run these all the time, but the extra level of protection is there when needed. Highly recommended.

    Plates are amazing

    I am law enforcement in Ca and wear this plate in my concealed body armor. It’s a side plate but I was able to fit it center on my chest over my soft body armor. Highly recommend it.

    They need to come out with a gen2 of these. They are awesome, but they weigh as much as front and rear level 4 plates

  27. Taylor M. (verified owner)

    Lightweight for what they are tested to withstand. They are thick and can take a bit to get used to being right under your arms. But, the coverage and protection are unmatched.

    These side plates are great, some of the highest rated you will find ! They are not lightweight, but they are not too heavy either. I got a pair of these to go in my Sheppard plate carrier. They fit in the side pockets perfectly, no play or movement at all once placed inside and velcro pocket is all set. I have seen some companies make 6”x6” side plates, but lets be honest 6”x8” is just that much more protection to your sides so why wouldn’t you want more piece of mind knowing you have that much more protection and at a Level 4 ceramic and not some AR500/AR600 steel and risk spalling ? I give these 5 stars very good quality, once you get these in your hands and feel them for yourself you understand. Pretty fast shipping and came very well packaged in a nice box with Guard Dog’s logo on the inside, side plates came covered in plastic inside of the box so no damage to them at all, along with a sticker and a velcro patch, very nice touch ! I love me some stickers ! If you are in the market for side plates and want the best, then you know what to do ! buy these NOW ! You will not regret it at all, you will only regret not buying these and adding them to your plate carrier, and if you plate carrier doesn’t have the ability to hold side plates, then I suggest you get a Guard Dog plate carrier that does ! (Like the Sheppard plate carrier that I purchased, just saying, check out my review on it on that page as well) Thanks Guard Dog, love the products !

    Recommend using laterally/horizontally if possible, plates came in good shape no complaints. the carrier I have (sheppard carrier) only allows for vertical side insert. When wearing the carrier properly, the vertical plates tend to be uncomfortable on my underarm nerves. A 6×6 option would be nice. Overall good deal.

    The price was fair, the delivery was quick and it was easy to order. I hope though I will never be in the position to give you the over all rating.

  38. Richard (verified owner)

    I’m pretty happy with my purchase from gaurd dog armor. My item came quickly, the packaging was sealed and secured. I plan to make other purchases sometime in the future.

    I ordered the Level 4 Side Plates after purchasing the Sheppard plate carrier and Ridgeback Plates.The Side Plates look as well made as the Ridgeback’s and fit nicely into the carrier.This is such a nice set up and not overly heavy considering the level of protection and feel that it was an extremely wise investment and couldn’t be happier with the purchase!
