Semi-related side note.

Delete everything past the --  ?   -- and it takes you to that same site without the tracking.

This does look like a good deal.

I know that $90 seems cheap but Steel Body armor is not a good idea.  There are a number of companies offering good quality body armor at reasonable prices.  Ex:

 https://www.primebodyarmor.com/product-page/ballistic-uhmw-pe-plate-10x12

These are UHMWPE plates that weigh in at 1/2 of the Steel versions. They are also positively buoyant.

CJS06 is right on target. Stay away from steel plates for a whole host of reasons the biggest being weight.
