Amazing product

I got it for protection purposes as I attend college. I figured better to be safe than sorry. Plates are thick and heavy. I honestly believe it could take a beating as I watched a video online that showed a multitude of higher caliber rifle rounds were tested on just the plates themselves as they went above and beyond any other plates standards.

Backplate Plate

Feels solid and great quality product. Shipping was fast too.

Piece of mind

This backpack plate is exactly as described. It is heavy, but it should be. I placed it in the hydration pocket of my 5.11 Rush 12 and it fits perfectly. I would not advise placing anything next to the plate; the coating, though a little soft, would likely be too abrasive against screens or electronics.


Bought for my daughters back pack, good feel, had an issue with the delivery where the delivery service returned my package due to not having a suite # on. I got in contact with customer service and they sent out another package same day and i received the plate in 2 days. great company and people to work with. i will be purchasing other items in the near future.


Love it!

Level IIIA Vertx Backpack Panel

Durus 8000 10x12

Items were shipped and arrived in the promised amount of time. The plates fit perfectly in my 5.11 TacTec vest. The plates are thin and seem to be heavier than described. I use the vest to throw over my duty gear and soft body armor in active shooter situations. The plates don’t make it that much bulkier.

Super versatile!..but a bit heavy.

Bought this for my wife, she thinks taticool stuff is ugly, which it is sometimes. She doesn’t always use the same bag but she always has her computer. This allows her to always have a bit of armor wherever she goes. But man, this weights more then you think it would, much heavier then other soft body panels, super cool product, I could see this item going on back order, would be nice to see it in colors that a child or wife would like but otherwise great.

Confusing at first but cool product.

Took probably 20 mins to make sense of the instructions, the photos and text didn’t make much sense to me. Very cool product, retention is good and allows a weapon to sit much flatter inside a bag, pretty slick rig.
