If you want a cheaper option (I almost went with this but opted for 3+ lightweight plates as well as the multi curve, I figure if I ever need it Ill want it to be comfortable/actually wear it, those options would have been more than an additional +$100 at least)

I went with Scorpion Tactical plates and then purchased the plate carrier in this post, bringing total under $270. I could always buy mag pouches/holsters and would still be money ahead. Scorpion tactical uses AR500 steel - its typically cheaper to 'build' your own armor set up. Lightweight plates will save you at least 4lbs or more depending on the cut and style of the plate
