I hope you can wear it comfortably enough to have all the time on duty.

This armor is for the worst case scenario where I have to grab my rifle. I'll dump my soft armor and throw this on.

In that case, I hope you have enough time to make that decision and make the switch.

Nice - those are made in my hometown.

I finally got it fitted properly and now I just need to train with it.

Very nice! Their website says they're stand alone, multi-impact plates. I retired about 5 years ago from the Army, & the ones we had then required the soft ballistic armor underneath for it to be truly effective for protecting against rifle rounds. Praying you never need to don them.

What are you planning to get for her to top this gift?? :headscratch

She already got a belly band holster she wanted at the local gun show. I also got her a papa cord watch band for her Casio she wanted.
