I have the stuff, and it's HEAVY as all get out.I took this photo before I really had it set right. It's a promo piece, and it's steel plates, not Kevlar. Very heavy, but will stop most common rifle rounds. The carrier and coating will absorb spall and the MOLLE vest makes it easy to keep the two mag pouches that came with it.
Now what do i do with this interesting 14 pound monster? It sits waiting for a TRULY bad day. It's quick to get on, but it does take time. I would have to say the day I need this thing will be the worst day of my life, and very, very unlikely, but because I was able to get it, I'm happy to have it.
