PATRIOT PLATE “1” ARMOR & CONDOR PLATE CARRIER PACKAGE
I have been searching for body armor for quite some time.
I was looking for a good balance of cost vs. quality vs. mobility.
The Patriot Plate 1 system delivers.
The system comes with a plate carrier and two, 10 x 12 steel armor plates that are a quarter inch thick! All for $150 + $13.65 for USPS shipping!
The carrier is the Condor “Sentry” model in O.D. Green.
The carrier is not U.S. made…
The quality is very good…
The stitching is A+.
The plates, front & rear are made from genuine Military Mil-A-46100E armor plate,.
The plates weigh 8 lbs. 2 oz. each. Not super light, but very manageable.
The plates are available non-coated or coated with what looks to be line-x pick-up truck bed-liner coating to better control bullet splatter, a $21.00 per plate option. I opted for the non-coated version.
The plates currently ship with sharp corners at the bottom of the plates…
This condition will eventually chew a hole or two in the carrier. I purchased the non-coated version because I knew I will be rounding the corners. I will coat the plates myself when done rounding the corners.
I wore both plates in the carrier with no drama for 4 hours.

Get this set-up, you will not be disappointed!
