    Thank you for this! I've had endless arguments from co-workers that I wear my armor 'too high' since the bottom of abdomen is exposed. I've long said I wear it to protect my heart and lungs, the most vital areas in the abdomen. I've even used the anatomical targets from RE Factor Tactical, which show people they are often aiming too low in training, to no avail!

    Love threads like this. Nothing to practice, no drills to perfect. Just good info. All you need to do is read, inspect your gear, and correct as necessary.

    This post [Proper Wear of Armor (with anatomical diagrams)] sets off many warnings from my Anti-Virus software.


    Apparently the website http://sixty-six.org has the problem (or also has the same problems), at least my Anti-Virus software says both have a virus problem.

    So if I am looking at getting armor for a plate carrier (I currently have soft armor with a 5x7 level IV plate in it, looking to get my first plate carrier), do I need to start by sizing myself for the front and back plates, and then use that to size the carrier?

    Yes. Find out what size plates you need beofre you get yourself a carrier. Plate sizes can be found almost anywhere online, and will give you at lest an idea of what you may need.

    Plate sizing was explained earlier in the thread.

    Can I necrobump this thread?!

    Iím starting to put together a PC and I need some help with the rear plate. Is there such a thing as a ďrear plateĒ or are all the plates the same and you just put one in the front and one in the back? Iím sure I sound pretty ignorant here but Iím not sure how else to find out other than to ask.

    You have it right: you get two plates, put together one in back, one in front. If there’s front/back-specific models, I don’t know of them, but it could be out there.
