    I recently tested the Guardian IV ceramic level IV plates from Midwest Armor. They were designed to be a reasonably priced plate while still maintaining level IV protection. They retail for $199 but Midwest Armor was gracious enough to offer my viewers with a discount code of "MGG" available on their website. With that code you'll get each plate for $125 (pretty good price for level IV protection). In the video below I shot them up with 9mm, 40 S&W, 5.56x45, 7.62x39, 5.45x39, and 7.62x54r. Here's what I found:

    -Stopped all rounds
    -Made in the USA
    -Guaranteed for 5 years
    -10''x12'' and 1'' thick
    -Curved for comfort
    -The shoulder areas are cut for shouldering long guns
    -Each plate weighs 7.3 pounds

    -Really the only one I can think of is the fact that it only comes in one size.
