SKD Armor 10 x 12 Level IV Stand Alone Plate

SKD Armor 10 x 12 Level IV Stand Alone Plate Specification Sheet


by Joe

We’re proud to offer the best ceramic protection available at this weight and price. This was an easy staff pick thanks in part to the mountains we had to move to get this plate made. If you’re looking to avoid the safety and quality issues of steel plates in a great ceramic package for steel-plate price, then there isn’t any deal better. The video linked below was posted by ESSTAC with a plate they bought and paid for. We had no idea they were going to do this but it does show what the plate is capable of. If you’ve never seen what it looks like when you shoot a loaded PMAG on a carrier, you should definitely check it out. OH, and M855A1. Yes, A1. View More SKD Staff Picks

Reviewer: Mikey Em from Washington State  
Great product at a great price. Quick shipping and processing. I appreciated SKD vetting each buyer by requiring documentation for Body Armor Purchases; fortunately they were very responsive and accepted electronic documentation swiftly.
    These are great Level IV stand alone plates in a Swimmer's Cut. About as thin as I've seen for Stand Alone Plates. Weighed 6 lbs 10 oz on my scale. Great finish. That said, the single curve profile is not as ergonomic as triple or multi-curve plates I've worn in the past. And they are about 1.5" too short for a perfect fit in my S/M Mayflower APC. When seated they cover my vitals adequately - I'm 5'8"/170 - just the velcro scrunches up a bit at the bottom of the plate pocket to keep them high enough. Still works and fully functional, but not perfect.
     Overall, pretty damn good all around plates, with extra mobility from the swimmers cut, at a great price.

5 of 5 Great build quality & fit April 13, 2020
Reviewer: Nomad Rex from Columbia, MO  
These plates are awesome. I love the cut, which allows me to comfortably shoulder a rifle and move effortlessly. I'm no pro, but these work great for my application.

3 of 5 It might be for you if April 4, 2020
Reviewer: Sandbox from Mesa, AZ United States  
I bought it for use with pig carrier as a back plate as a counterweight for 10x12 carbine plate with full mags and it does that just fine.

If however, you use a hydration bladder or ice plate then the extra heft is excessive and the single curve can apply pressure that isn't my preferred tempur-pedic solution.

The price is higher than comparable plates but the weight is enough lower to justify it.  If you normally wear AS steelies then this would be an upgrade in almost all regards except for thickness and curve.

Final thoughts, it is Good and could be kind of great for certain situations if it was offered in multi-curve.
