I purchased this as part of an active shooter kit. So far I'm impressed with the design, especially the vented padding behind the front, back, and underneath the shoulder pads. The side pouches accommodate my 1 in plates with room to spare.
Over the past 16 years I've used several different types of plate carriers. I prefer this one the most, the price was right and the shipping was quick.
