    So update, went to a class about a month ago. And I wore plates through the whole thing, was the only one. Didnít get tired from it, other than having to run through the mud for 200yds, but thatís more to me not running a lot. I did feel more comfortable with them on than without. Only time I took them off was during lunch, and to sight in from prone in the beginning. Next carbine I go to, Iíll wear them again. Theyíre ceramic lvl4s

    Thanks for sharing your experience. What kind of class was this?

    You went to learn. You learned what needs work because you challenged yourself. Otherwise you may have walked away disgruntled from what turned out to be a carbine 101 class. Start some light jogs in your rig.

    I wear a 24 pound carrier even in stationary steel challenge type matches. Someone else can dictate my load out if they pay my way. I'm going to get what I want from a match if it's my training nickel while enjoying having a few square inches of safety.

    As for "feeling the need for armor". Armor is PPE. Same as eye and ear protection. Hearing protection minimizes cumulative damage. Eye pro and armor reduces the chance of instant damage.

    I have used a simple chest rig and a zip up vest type for so.e classes. Just don't like loading up my belt

    Have it, do plan on wearing it - but also expect to do the majority of the class without it. Your goal is to learn, and wearing hot heavy extra junk is only going to be beneficial for the purpose of learning part of that time. Simple as that.

    I basically quit after a couple of hours, but not after a fair bit of learning had occurred on how actually useful that particular admin pouch placement I was trying out with with high port retention, or that I needed to just accept a little more sling slack at all times.
