No matter what you choose in armor there are trade offs, plusses and minuses.  I went with a single curve AR550 3+ steel full spall coated system.  I wanted to go with the slightly lighter AR650 plates but everyone was out of those when I was ready to buy last year.  I might still get the AR650 fully coated curved plates as a Christmas gift this year and pass the slightly heavier AR550 plates on to my son.

Well this subject there will be a lot of answers, opinions , and the point of views.

From my personal experience this place has some really, really good armor that can take A LOT of beating. 

I watched a few demos on these vests and the 3A+ took over 300 rounds when they stopped midway and nothing went through. Was quite impressive. BUT the cost is alittle high, BUT you can break up the cost into 4 payments and have a hell of a body armor setup.

Their stuff is pretty good. Just my two cents
