John Long touched basis with me concerning the soft body, and offered me a deal that work extremely well for me, Thank You Again John. The body armor arrived in a minimum time, and it fits well and is also lighter than what I expected to be.
The two orders, one for a carrier, the second for soft armor, arrived really fast by comparison to most things these days. Of course, I haven't tested the new armor, and don't intend to. I am placing my life in your hands, and based upon your word. Compared to my military experience with body armor, this is a dream to wear. I bought the lightest (and most expensive) version, but having the lightest possible load is very appealing to me, even if I have to pay a few (hundred) more dollars for it. I plan to get more, but am on a budget, so those buys are in the " whenI have the money" category.
Anyway, thanks. Exactly as advertised, quick delivery, and great fit. Hope the time never comes where I have to use it. Need more for everyone, and will slowly build the inventory.
I needed soft armor panels for my outer carrier, under my ceramic plates. Thankfully, you list the vest panel sizes, which allowed me to find the right size panels to fit. The panels were in stock and shipped quickly. They appear to be well made and should serve me very well. Thank you for listing the panel sizes!
