BODY ARMOR RETURN POLICY

These items cannot be returned as the manufacturer loses chain of custody of the item and cannot guarantee that after we have shipped the product that the structural integrity has been maintained.
I took part in extensive testing of this armor along with other members of my LE agency and was extremely impressed with its ability to stop an extensive range of calibers and bullet types ranging from handguns to soft point 5.56, shotgun slugs and buckshot, .243, .270, .30-06, .308 and 5.7mm rounds. These plates were capable of stopping numerous hits from less than ten yards with acceptable backface deformation. I currently run them for duty use and find the extreme lightweight to be a major benefit. These plates do not stop green tip (armor piercing) rounds nor are they designed to do so. If you want that look at their Level IV HS or HA plates which I assure you will handle those threats. If you’re in the market for IIIA armor you’ll not be unhappy with these I assure you.
Using these plates has significantly reduced my gear weight. These plates and carrier are lighter than a single one of the old plates I was running. There was a small misunderstanding on my part when I order but the WPS answered my question.
