    These plate pockets are great, adjustable for either 6x6 or 6x8 plates. Molle. Only issue with them is an issue of my own doing, I forgot to order trauma pads so they are loose in the pouches, I’m sure that once I put trauma pads in the pouches with the plates they won’t move around as much. I like that there is a small strap to grab onto on the flap that folds inside to secure the plates, makes it easy to grab the flap if needed to pull open the Velcro flap. The Velcro is strong and should hold the plates in place without coming loose. These pouches are high quality thick nylon and will last.

    Plate side pocket

    Would be better if it was not made in china. Needs padding on the inside, double stitching and needs a Velcro adjustment so you can accommodate different size plates

    Armor Pockets

    Posted by LANDON on Jul 19th 2022

    Great product, durable and definitely is everything is advertised to be. All and all, would recommend for a great solution to anyone needing a good solution for side armor. Only suggestions are first , offer a pouch that is made specifically for a 6x6 plate to reduce the excess material left if using the smaller plate size, and second to possibly add a moisture wicking overlayering to help with sweat build up and be a softer material for the under arm and elbow. Gets a little raw after wearing a vest all day and the durable material rubbing against the same spot.
