I have written about training plates before and I think they are an excellent investment, especially if you pay for your ballistic plates out of your own pocket. Inert training plates approximate the weight and size of real ballistic plates so that you can train realistically without putting wear and tear on your real plates.
Team Wendy makes some of the more well known and easily available training plate sets on the market and now Shellback Tactical is carrying them (and other Team Wendy gear). These plates are great for all of you who have built your High Value Armor Set Up using the excellent Banshee Plate Carrier.
