anyone into body armor?

Just wondering if anyone is into body armor, or would have a need.

What are you looking for when you purchase this?

What makes you choose one brand over the other?

What are things that appeal to you about a certain supplier?

Re: anyone into body armor?

The only reason it has caught my interest is because of the number of anti gun groups and politicians calling for a ban on level IIIA armor.

So if I do end up getting some, it will probably be level IIIA, most likely spartan armor, and only because the guy on the Military Arms Channel recommends it on his youtube videos.

Re: anyone into body armor?

I want all kinds of body armor! Problem is it's expensive and it weighs you down and restricts movement. So the only armor I wear is a helmet and gloves.

Oh, we're not talking about mountain biking gear, are we?

You really under estimated the ramifications of the boondoggle you have just perpetrated!

What are you looking for specifically? Soft armor?? Hard armor that will take rifle rounds?

There are lots of different types of armor and things to consider...

Like Jason said...weight and restricted movement are big...you pretty much have to learn how to shoot all over again with long guns and hand guns even with soft armor like police wear on a daily basis...
