    Pretty good, only one major problem.

    Posted by Daniel on May 6th 2023

    The shoulder strap loosens when lifting it off. This is problematic, as I'm a photojournalist and I bought this before working in Ukraine. Somedays I would be in areas where the protection was needed, then for lunch we'd leave and go eat someplace safe so I'd remove the kit, but everytime, the should strap would loosen and it isn't easy to adjust to correct position on my own. I wouldn't always be with a colleague that could help.

    4s17 plates

    Posted by Dalton on Feb 28th 2023

    Haven't shot these plates, but have bought others such as the AR1000 steel plate and shot them. They're great products.

    Awesome product! Would be 5 stars if XL option

    Posted by Brady Manning on Dec 14th 2020

    This is a great plate carrier and plate set. It holds the plates secure and the MOLLE is quite solid. The adjustable clips are made of a polymer that can be a bit slick so I recommend taping your straps in position to avoid badly-timed wardrobe malfunctions. Also, I'm a big guy so I ended up liquidating the standard cummerbund so I could order an XL cummerbund. I would love to see an XL option available.

    a friend of mine is a former marine - two combat tours overseas ---- he's got a full setup (he's "ready" for anything - let me tell you...) and he knows what he's talking about when it comes to personal defense - he knew i was looking for body armor and he recommended this when it went on sale ------ ordered 11/27 delivered 12/7

    Very happy with purchase. As a smaller fellow I was weary when searching but this carrier is absolutely 100% adjustable. Carrier is very well made and surprisingly comfortable.

    Very good products

    Posted by Zach Morris on Oct 2nd 2020

    Overall very impressed with the carrier and the plates. The plates are a bit heavy as expected for the protection they should provide, but the carrier fits well, is comfortable, and distributes the weight perfectly, while also being very customizable.

    Could not be happier

    Posted by Glenn on Sep 8th 2020

    Ordered on Sunday 8/30 and received it on Thursday 9/3. That is what I call professional service. This is my first Plate carrier, so I have limited experience, but the construction seems good, easy to adjust and comfortable without being too heavy. At this price point, I am very pleased...

    Seems top shelf

    Posted by jp on Aug 29th 2020

    My first carrier. Seems sturdy & well constructed. Not so heavy as to be an issue. Pair of plates about 15 lb. Only issue was the shoulder strap will losen, not a big deal , got them where i wanted androuted the slackup and around so it couldn't. Shipping was fast a few days from order to doorstep. Would buy again.
