Armor was easy to order and arrived quickly. Armor plates fit very well in vest carrier pouches. Snug and fits close to chest. Lighter weight than level 4 plate and easier to wear for longer periods. Price is good. Given all the chaos out there, if you need a vest I would buy at least one level 3 armor plate for the front of the vest. Think of it as life insurance you hope you never need.. Stay safe out there.
I do not work for Atomic Defense. This review is my own opinion. I wear my vest concealed under loose shirts ( trying not to attract attention ). I own both the NIJ 3 and NIJ 4 armor plates. Both plates will stop AR-15 and AK-47 rounds such as the rifles carried by the “peaceful” protestors of BLM. You can shoulder a weapon while wearing a vest using either insert. The NIJ 3 is easier. The NIJ 4 plate will cover more of you than the NIJ3. The NIJ 3 is lighter by about 1/2 lb. SUGGESTIONS: If I’m moving around all day, climbing in-and-out of cars, climbing, etc I choose the NIJ 3 inserts. If I’m in an area of “peaceful” protestors who are carrying rifles, I wear the NIJ 4 insert up front. I pray I won’t have to prove this armor.
I am happy with my protective insert. Fits well into my carrier, as well as in the area in my rucksack. I will continue to do more business!
Good products. Wish there were other colors. But black is black lol
Same as everyone else said. Very good
