Concerning lightweight Level III+ plates, they are surely easier to carry than the others. Every pound, or even ounce, taken off a load can make a difference. That comes from years as a Marine and a backpacker. Ounces matter. And pounds, as in this case, are terrific! Of course, I had to test it ballistically, and hope not to, but one is betting that it will do the job when it's needed.
To me, it's worth the extra money for these plates, and also the lightweight soft body armor, which I also have.
Love my body armor. Fits perfectly and feels very comfortable
Fits well in the body armor. I have no plans to test it so i really have no comment. Peace of mind
The plates are super well built. I'm running them in an AR500 plate carrier and they fit snug and feel light weight. Def worth the extra money for the Poly over the steel. Dave was great when I called...nice to hear the owner instead of a recording.
