    I had the SAPIs on my last trip overseas, but have since gotten the new EASPIs. And yes, they are designed for protection agains the AP rounds you mentioned.

    In a medium, a pair of SAPIs weighed 8 pounds, and the ESAPIs are 11. They are heavier, but if you're talking 8 pounds per plate, holy cow you are a big dude. [img]smile.gif[/img]

      those are medium plates...in the military, are 8x10 or 10x12 considered medium?

      The ESAPI I got was from my usual plate vendor, as a sample plate, and came in one size (from them) only...11x12. It was about 7.5-8 pounds.

      Big is relative. [img]smile.gif[/img]

        I can't explain it, except we just don't have the same ESAPIs. Some minor variaition would be understandable, but double the weight and not in various sizes (from the same vendor) is something I've never run across.

          In re-reading the spec sheet on the CerPro plate (#2675P if you can find it), it says

          "E-SAPI Ballistic Performance in conjunction with Interceptor Vest"

          So, ESAPI performance, not an ESAPI plate. My bad.
