    On first glance the exterior coating of the plates is superb. Usually you see a rubber coating, plastic coating, a heat shrink fabric etc. DFNDR however impressed me on first look and feel by just how well the quality of the outside material was wrapped and secured. It was perfectly taunt onto the ballistic material and had a solid logo front and center. Once picking it up, weight was a solid 10/10. Finding protection comes at a cost, as well as a cost in weight as well. I feel DFNDR armor has the best protection and weight ratio on the market out of all the body armor systems I have personally tried. I cannot make a claim as to their protection as I have yet to be shot and hope to keep it that way. However, I trust DFNDR and NIJ standards to protect me should I ever need it.

    I am a law enforcement officer on the west coast who purchased the armor to supplement the basic armor provided by my department.
    The armor I purchased from DFNDR has been totally worth it!
    In fact, the department I work for recently purchased us armor from another manufacturer; it is rated the same as DFNDR, but weighs more. So, I continue to use my DFNDR Level III++ plates!
