there is a reddit thread floating around , im not sure if the OP is just shitting on them for no reason , but it seems the people posting on it have seen issues with the fact they arent NIJ certified and i would tend to agree. While I understand that government rubberstamping is not for some, I think I would like to purchase something if its rated for said ballistics. that said I personally own these plates, though i am worried about rifle penetration during a breakin my home. I paid extra for the build up coat because i hope to jesus the spalling wont hit my throat

I really think a lot of that is unfounded. Especially on III+ because there is no NIJ certification for it. The NIJ cert really is just a baseline. And I’m not sure I trust a baseline that allows up to 2” distance inside of edge shot (used to be 3” Yikes!) and multiple inches in between stacked shots. That virtually reduced a 10x12 to a 8x10. I know high end companies produce way better than this but I’m just saying that’s what the “holy” NIJ cert allows.

And there’s really no need to worry about spalling. The build up coat will catch it. A high quality carrier would catch a lot of spall by itself. Then when you stack mags or gear on top of that you have even more coverage.

Don't use Viabill you'll regret it, trust me use affirm if you need to finance much better.

Shoulder pads is what you really need with these.

You can always buy the trama pads someplace else.

I like AR500 but they are really behind right now on orders.

These are a pretty good deal for pads.

Tactical Scorpion Gear also now has a Spall blocker/ trauma pad combo that’s really cool. The spall blocker is made from multiple layers of Kevlar covered in cordura. It covers the front of the plate and wraps around the sides and onto the back a couple inches. The trauma pad then Velcro’s to the part that wraps around to the back. I own a couple and I highly recommend them.
