So, I've been thinking about this for a while. I've wanted a Plate Carrier vest set up for some time and I've decided to go a head and get one. It will most likely hang in the closet and be worn little unless the SHTF of course. I've been looking at several different makes and models. But having never owned one, just worn what was issued to me in the sandbox back in the day, and I'm sure they've changed a great deal since then. So if you have one or you have knowledge to pass on please do so.
