Well, IF they stop M855 being all poly is a definite plus since you don't have to worry about the ceramics cracking.

I finally received my lvl III plate from Botach, it was back ordered for over a month after it said on the website (The reason I ordered it) it said “in stock and ships daily”. Still pissed about that but they’re going to have to wait a week for their money. Tit for Tat.
It fits very well in the condor EXO plate carrier and is surprisingly comfortable weighing only 3 1/2 pounds it feels like I’m wearing a thick winter jacket. :bigsmile:

I have one, a site I have been looking at have a different profile backplate which is normally 11 x 14 with no shooters cut, Just the corners trimmed. Should both the front and back plates be the same profile, or does it matter?
I’ll try and find it, was up late one night searching... :rofl9:

It doesn't matter too much, some carriers won't fit a square too plate in back though.

I wouldn't do it, slight weight difference, and might interfere with an assault pack or ruck on my back, but that's just me.

Main thing would be fitment. I dont think my carrier would take a square top plate.

A buddy of mine bought a set of hard armor from Semper Fi Armor (Phoenix AZ) for $200. Buy from their ebay store, free shipping.

My soft body armor gives me move coverage than hard armor but acknowledging it won't stop rifle rounds. I do want to change out the cover from a concealable carrier cover to one with molle straps for gear.

Damn, sorry to hear that. Those are VERY questionable, no special threat ratings, etc. Says virtually nothing about the armor, except that it's steel, and level 3. I bet m855 and m193 sail right through 'em.

Sad to see so many folks buying crap "armor" for lack of knowing.

Lots of good carriers out there that'll let you put your soft wrap-around armor in, and add plates too. Gets heavy and hot, but you're right about the greater coverage.
