When it comes to protecting yourself against incoming rounds, you need to trust your life to ballistic plates, or just hope that Murphy won’t catch up to you. There are dozens of options for purchasing armor plates, many are legitimate, but for every legitimate one there are two cheap knock-offs. The best rule of thumb is to find a legitimate company, and always remember that you get what you pay for.
In the video below members of Polenar Tactical, a popular European sports shooting channel, conduct a test with a cheaply made ballistic plate they purchased from China for just under $100 USD. Let’s see how it holds up. At the end of the video, leave a comment if you would trust your life to this thing in a real life situation.
