Can you convince me that I need body armor?

Lever guns, hunting guns, black powder, plinkers, rifle scopes, spotting scopes, night vision, sling shots, bows 'n arrows, knives and anything else that doesn't fit anywhere else!

Skoll has told me the armor being reviewed here is not of a quality he recommends. I can’t speak to the quality of this particular product but I feel the video makes some good points regarding the benefit of trauma pads as well as a build up
Of the rubber coating to catch the shrapnel. I felt a little more educated after watching this video anyway.

It's very basic and budget minded. Like I said I have their LW plates because I couldn't afford ceramic at the time. I absolutely recommend getting ceramic plates if you can afford it. AR500 will do the job but not every company that makes/sells plates are equal. Spartan Armor for example I've heard bad things about. If you go up a few of my posts, I posted a Google docs of different armors, their prices, and ratings. AR500 is acceptable but the absolute bottom of acceptance I think. Towards the end of the year I plan on purchasing HighCom plates.
