Nice High Quality Plate!

The Stratis Level III+ plate is a high quality, lightweight plate for the threat level protection that it affords. It fits into my backpack very nicely! It gives me the additional piece of mind over a level IIIA panel, when necessary. But, actually, I have a nice IIIA panel from PBA, as well. Sometimes, I exchange the plate for the panel, or vice versa. Sometimes, I have both in my pack. It depends on where I’m going, of course, and what kind of environment, I’ll be in. I’m in a large urban area most of the time. Of course, I don’t expect a level III+ and IIIA, together, to be a substitute for a level IV plate, but, I have the plate and panel, anyway, so often just carry them both.

Piece of Mind in knowing it's there

I couldn't be happier with this plate. I spent a lot of time looking for something that was level III+ and lightweight enough to carry, when loaded down with everything else and this plate did the job.
Excellent Quality and I honestly hope I never have to use it, but glad that I have it.

No option

Sorry. Didnt catch a bullet yet. Can not review product.
