Fortis III +/ RF1

Plates are outstanding, the weight and feel are true to what is stated on the website. Definitely thinking about buying a second set for family members

Michael Pawlowicz

They are made with the customer in mind ? I’m 6 ft 185 lbs my wife is 5.7 and 130 lbs and we both feel very comfortable in them! Easy to install accessories on them! Well a little work involved but that’s ok!
We purchased the vests as well as the plates.
My wife and I love the pease of mind they give us! Just hope we never know actually how good of a product they are! If you get my meaning!

Light is Fast

Light weight = Speed. SPEED is security. These plates are great. Not level 4 stop everything, but light enough to provide protection in movement. Highly recommend.

David McCool

I am impressed with the weight of these Fortis plates. So much lighter than AR500 steel plates. More comfortable to wear for sure.
