    Any authorities on body armor?

    I've been thinking about running a simple plate carrier rather than our enormous issued jacket.

    I have Ceradyne Level IV E-SAPIs. Does anyone know if they would be okay to run as stand-alones, or am I pretty much restricted to wearing it with the soft armor? I know it's okay to do that with most hard plates, but I figured I'd ask.

    Kelly? Orca?

    Thanks in advance.

    Sorry, those are 'in conjunction' plates only. Google 'DocGKR' and read his writings on body armor. There's a lot to digest, but well worth it.

    As for plate carriers, currently I'd look at Mayflower at http://mayflower-rc.com/
    or Mercworx http://www.mercworx.com/detail.aspx?ID=49

    Of course, the old standbys, CIRAS and Eagle Ind are great stuff too.
