Airsoft grade carrier and steel plates with nothing but Chinese nylon keeping 1847927 tiny spall fragments from entering your neck? Noooooo thank you.

For about $150 more, you could have bought some Paraclete Speed Plates and a better carrier.

Spartan plates ARE coated, but they have that logo on the front of them pressed into the coating so its looks like they are not. Its a pretty decent deal. They have a very think build up of anti spall on them actually.

I ordered this 1 week before I posted this thread so I got it yesterday. the plates will be a good target when I have time to shoot. the carrier will be a spare, I will get a better set for sure. DON'T get this set. to me there is no coating. looks like paint just for corrosion protection. I wont trust this set at all. it may stop a round but not fragments. need to do more research next time before I purchase. took pictures but don't want to spend time downloading it to imageshack.

I actually have a First Spear Siege BALCS Plate Carrier in Coyote Tan, size large, that I have never worn. Still has the tag on it, been in the closet since I bought it. Definitely not your run of the mill Chinese knock off carrier. You can PM me if you're interested.
