Hello everybody.

I am looking to buy some training plates for my Eagle SPC size X-SMALL.
I have found some Team Wendy, but they are in SMALL only.
Is there some manufacturer that you know makes X-SMALL plates and that you would recommend?

You have specific requirements? I think for the size troubles you're gonna find, this could be a simple DIY project. If looking for weight/filler for vest etc, simple DIY

Try using thicker Neoprene which is laminated on both sides.........it is fairly heavy and can be covered in Cordura and functions as a light training plate.

Most plastics dealers can custom cut them to your plate carrier or plate size and either laser cut them or water jet them to size..........it is better than trying to find a size in other than Medium, which is what most of the training plates seem to be in.........If you use foam, just use closed cell foam or you will have problems with H20 retention or possibly bacteria growth. I like 3/4 inch Neoprene with a laminate of 500 Denier Cordura using simple adhesive................also serves as a simple duck blind seat or fishing seat.................

There is a Virginia manufacturer who is water jet cutting training plates to go into S&S Plate Frames and LBT/Mayflower slick plate carriers since there is a lack of inexpensive training plates for SIM or non-hazard training schenarios.................I now he has sold quite a few to the Navy and DoD already wrapped in 500D camo and they run less than what Team Wendy plates go for and are very sturdy.

It is a DiY job to save money.....Good Luck

Try http://www.bulletproofme.com/. I didn't see anything on their site, but they may be able to get a hold of them.

I posted a similar thread last year:

Warrior Trial are probably your best bet if you want something off the shelf, but with everything they're expensive.
