I just got a a set of these from Max and have been wearing them through two straight days of training here in Texas. They are a huge improvement over the other level 3 plates I have been using. The curve profile, weight, and thinness make a huge difference in the comfort of the plates and mobility while wearing them. If you are on the fence (I was until I got to handle them) at all about buying the plates from Max just go for it. You will not regret getting these plates.
ShotStop have asked if these testimonials can be used by them as testimonials. Let me know if that is OK with you guys. Also, if anyone else wants to chime in, do so and let me know if what you say can be used. Thanks.
Further followup up review on ShotStop customer service. Just a heads up. These guys customer service is awesome! I left a message indicating that I had some questions about plate carrier fitment. I just got a call back and had a great conversation with the Rep about their plates. Not only is their Rep going out of his way to get me the info I want, he gave me his cell # and told me to call him directly if there was any more info I needed or if I had any issues. I’m glad I got these plates from Max.
