High quality

James Zimmerman

Bought these for my Mothers kit. She's loves how light these plates are. Easier to handle.

After running five pound plates for 17 years in USASOC / SOCOM, these lightweight plates were just the thing these old, worn out hips were looking for. Matter of fact, just ordered a second plate that arrived yesterday. Running and gunning like a teenager again. De Oppresso Liber!

Bobby Thurman

They are exactly what we were looking for. Light, sturdy, and fit in our carriers perfectly. Gear assembled with their weight and it wasn't too much for a guy to get over loaded.

First hard plates/carrier

Have always worn soft armor, generally in outside carrier working law enforcement and military. Needed to up protection from rifle fire. Did not want heavy steel plates. Polyethylene the ticket for weight and protection. The Fortis III+ very nice. Light, 3.4 lbs each, multi curve, comfortable, have protective coating, fabric, nice. I put them in a Agilite K19 carrier. Overall more comfortable, easier to move than the outer carriers and soft armor I have worn before. Weight is crucial in extended wearing of vest, especially when adding pouches, ammo, radio, etc. These plates really help in reducing weight and no compromise on protection. The price was a factor along with quality and protection level. These plates nailed it, don't know how you could get anything better for this price. Company is legit, background In manufacture sold me also. You will not be disappointed in the Fortis III+ multi-curve plates.
