    First let me start off by saying Chase Tactical has great customer service. I accidently ordered full size instead of shooters cut. I had a call the next day telling me of my screw up, I was at work so I couldn’t answer the phone. I emailed them back when I got a chance and told them I meant shooters cut and if they could swap it over that would be awesome. Just like I asked they done it no questions asked. The prompt calls and verification of this company is top notch 👌 Will definitely do business with them many more times.

    The plates!
    Lead time was freaking awesome in that I received them within 4 weeks which is pretty quick compared to other places I’ve ordered from. Plates look great, feel great and I trust them to stop what they claim.

    Seriously could not be happier with this company and how they treat the customer.

    The plates offer a high level of protection, are relatively lightweight, and quite affordable with Sezzle installments. I am definitely buying again, and soon.

    I recently purchased the chase tactical ceramic plates and the banshee plate carrier. I am very happy with my purchase. The quality is of top tier products and it is a trustworthy product I depend on to leave my shift and return back to my family every day. When you are in Law Enforcement and you depend on a product to put your faith in trust Chase Tactical products and their sister companies they sell.
