    Great video, very educational for a non military person like myself, who is comsidering purchasing hard armour

    Great info, probably our most FAQs– Plus, music by RANCID. Good house keeping, velociraptor, John Stamos…….Time for karate in the garage?

    This needs to be spread far and wide – the vast majority of those wearing both hard and soft armor wear it far too low for maximal effectiveness, leaving major vital organs exposed.

    ya gotta add that wearing the plates high on the chest also makes the top of your PC a perfect spot for your chin during a quick nap…

    but you mean I don’t wear my steel plates with the curved edges pointing out away from my body!!! wtf dude…!!!….

    It’s upsetting that a video needs to exist, but way to get the info out there Kit Badger! Well articulated and demonstrated plus Rancid.

      I agree, it is odd that this information isn’t common knowledge. But at the same time… …we do still put out signs that say “slippery when wet”. At any rate, thanks for the kind words!
