Their plates are heavy, but also great for the price.
Their carriers are high quality material, stronger than other brand products.

AR500 company plates are fucking heavy. Weight is they KEY not the cost. Spending $1000 and saving 10 lbs off your Back is worth the money. Not lugging 18lbs and spending $150. People are gonna say they can hack it and it's worth the money, but after an hour wearing it they'll change their mind. I just spend $1200 for ceramic special thread with carrier the weight is under 8lbs, BOTH Plates Total is 7.3 lbs! and you don't have to worry about spalling. It can take M80 ball, 855A1, ak.

So one shot and that ceramic is toast, next shots coming straight through you. Don't know too many people that shoot once at a target. Drop that ceramic, fall down wearing it and its broke and compromised. The combination of anti spall coating and being a plate carrier will keep the spall down. Only way it hits your face or throat is if your heads down. And if you can't carry 20 pounds of steel in a plate carrier like all our troops do then you need to hit the weight room. Steel plates have been used tested and proven for years. Stop trying to justify over paying for garbage

I won't tell anyone how to spend their money I am more just trying to help educate people who don't know a lot about plates. And helping to keep them from making a bad purchase. I personally would only buy armor that would stop up to a 7.62 beccause otherwise whats the point why where armor if it won't stop whatever a threat throws at me? A pretty good write up on plate.

FYI - their site says their Level III plates are rated for 5.56 (Non-penetrator), 7.62x51 and 7.62x39.

I feel the same way. If you're in a situation in which you feel like you need body armor, then you're in a situation where 5.56's and other rifles with high penetration capabilities need to be accounted for. 5.56's are too common for level III plates or lower to be worth considering.

I can agree with that. 55gr at the right distance will zip through the level 3 plates.

DO NOT BUY ARMOR FROM AR500 THEY AREN'T NIJ CERTIFIED AND THEIR PLATE (even with the added coating) DOES NOT PREVENT SPALLING.

What are you talking about? Their Level III and Level IV plates are listed by the National Institute of Justice as compliant with "NIJ Standard-0101.06 for Ballistic-Resistance of Body Armor."

That is inflammatory. It has various degrees of spalling mitigation. Up to 223 it does a pretty good job from what I have seen. 762 not so much.

Nothing like being underrated overrated junk but that’s why I like to see the 3 round test on this plate.
