    Just got my USMC carrier and level 4 plates today. I’m super happy with the quality of the gear and quick delivery. I expected that it would take a month, at minimum, seeing some of the reviews, but I actually received mine in about a week and a half. Thank you, Armour Wear! You will definitely see more business from me in the future!

    I ordered my USMC Recon Plate Carrier along with Level 3+ plates back in November and finally got them last Thursday. I have to say Armour Wear did an AMAZING job. What I received was exactly what I had hoped for. With the Holidays there was a couple mishaps, but that is to be expected. I’m going to link a video in a comment after this post to show the products so you guys can see this stuff in legit. I spent 4 years in the Marines and this carrier is about as real as it gets.
    I gotta throw out a thankyou to Robert (the owner of Armour Wear) for your time and answering my questions when I gave you a phone call a little concerned about my product. Thanks again for your time and patients.
