These plates on the surface feel very solid and very well constructed. Plates were very well packaged being shipped and arrived in perfect condition with a must needed sticker of course. And the multi curve on this plate is also amazing and hugs your body perfectly. The front of the plates has a nice soft padding to stop the ceramic from cracking on impacts and the back also has padding but not as soft as the front .There are 3 things not mentioned in the description that ill point out in the review about this plate.
1. Sticker states it is compliant with NIJ .06 but on the website it says it is tested to NIJ .07, I was informed by a sales rep that they cannot put NIJ .07 on the plate at all due to it not being officially released.
2. The plates are roughly 1 1/4 inches thick but with the padding squeezed there about an inch.
3. The width of the plate is 9.5in not 10. These are sapi size so they run at 9.5 width. I fit these plates fine But very snug in a ferro concepts slickster Medium size.
Im super happy with my purchase as of now but would like to do a ballistic test on the plate, mainly back-face deformation when I have the money to do so.
