Without actually having to subject myself to a 7.62x39 round, I will contend the plates will work as expected. They are somewhat heavy, but that's not too big a deal. I can use the workout. My only issue is that they may be big for the carrier. I'm running the Banshee Tactical 1st generation rig which runs somewhat small to begin with, with the stock soft armor, it's fine. However, when replaced with the 1155 level IV plates, they do take up additional space from a sizing perspective. The plates fit fine in their slots, however, as mentioned they do impact the overall rig/ carrier sizing. This is more of a carrier issue however. Still, with that said, the plates do seem a great value for the price. Furthermore, customer service was exceptional. I spoke with a gentleman on a few occasions prior to placing the order, he went above and beyond. Shipment was within a week, even with everything going on. Shellback seems to be an exceptionally run company which I would not hesitate to do business with again.

Finally found level IV NIJ ceramic plates at a prince that didn't break the bank! Great quality and a very comfortable and familiar fit.

Awesome product for the price and exemplary service from Shellback Tactical. They will be my first choice when looking for products of this nature.

This is my first time to buy a ballistic plate so I do not really have a good insight about them other than the information I gathered from other reviews.
Regardless, the product came in promptly as promised by Shellback. It came in a well packaged boxed with the plates individually wrapped with bubble wrap. No damages nor “blemish” whatsoever.
Each plates weighed around 8 lbs each which is really hefty holding it by hand. Surprisingly, once inserted in the carrier, and wearing it, the total weight is very much manageable. It appears and feels that it will serve the purpose it was intended to do which is to stop common handgun/rifle rounds.

I have bought both these plates and the level 4 4S17 plates, for the price this is a solid plate. Finding plates right now is hard, finding quality plates right now is almost impossible. Also, you have to be careful because a lot of sites claim to be NIJ but when you go to the site, they are nowhere to be found, which is why I trust Shellback. You can find steel plates, but stay away from them and stick with ceramic. I have 6 deployments under my belt, so I know enough about plates to know what I like.
This plate is heavy at 8.2 pounds, but for the price it is what it is, it’s solid, well made, and quality. If you want something a touch lighter spend a little more and get a 4S17 or above. If you’re going to spend hours in your kit, it makes sense to spend more to get lighter plates, but if you’re like me, and just making sure you have a solid set of plates for whatever contingency comes up, this is a great deal. Add in the 10 year warranty and this is a deal you can’t pass up. I had a great experience with Shellback, and I will definitely buy again.

I had a fantastic experience with Shellback Tactical. In particular, I was impressed with their customer service. Several days after I placed my order, I learned that these plates were put on a slight backorder. When I contacted their customer service, to discuss the situation, they were tremendously considerate and upgraded my standard shipping to 2nd-day shipping at no cost. Even with a backorder, I received notification of delivery that was quick by any standard.
Then when the box arrived, and I opened the well-secured packaging, I continued to be impressed. The product itself is of the highest quality, and you cannot beat a 10-year warranty. Though I have not taken a bullet in these plates, their NIJ certification gives me the confidence to know I will come home each night. I would highly recommend this company and product to anyone interesting in body armor.

Their fit, finish and construction is top notch. They look and feel better then other plates I have caught a round with. I have no doubt that these plates would not let me down, hopefully I wont have to catch another round but if I did, I have no worries with these plates. Excellent quality for an excellent price.and didn't have to wait forever for them, pretty quick turnaround

Purchased these while on sale. They were a really reasonable price and pair great with the banshee 2.0 carrier. A little on the heavy side, but they are level 4 plates, I don’t expect anything different. Super fast shipping, and packed really well. Can’t beat the 10 year warranty either. Shellback has amazing shipping time, customer service and are honestly about the best in the business. I’ve bought several carriers from people such as RMA and AR500 and they are just abysmal with 10-12 week lead times and really poor communication. As long as Shellback keeps this up, they will have a customer for life.

What more can you ask for ? These plates are an amazing value for the money . I have had several plate sets but these are on another level, the slightly cushioned outer cover is functional and sleek , weight is to a minimum considering the price point , and a 10 year warranty.. you my friends have a repeat customer!
