    Looks fine. If anything it could come down a hair.

    Better too high than too low, unless it chokes you when you bend over. Just make sure it's even with the top of the sternum.

    The top of the plate, not the carrier, but the plate should be even with your clavicle. I like mine to line up with the bottom of my clavicle.

    The carrier is the top of the plate. Iíll try it on and adjust it tonight and see where it lands. It doesnít choke me when I bend my head down.

    Proper Wear of Armor (with anatomical diagrams)

    Ok is this the right placement, middle finger on the front is in by sternum notch. Fingers from the back are on out arriving vertebrae.

    Front looks good, back needs to come up a bit more if possible.

    Thanks for this thread.
    I just tightened mine up a bit as it was a little low.

    I would also make sure the armor doesn't ride up and impede shooting while kneeling or prone. Some guys wear their plates just a little too high and don't realize it until the first time they really get to train in them.

    If you can, go climb ropes and jump over things wearing your plates to make sure mobility isn't hindered.
