Personally, I dig Plate carriers more simply for MOLLE. You can change around your setup to suit your needs and play style and swap through a variety of pouches and such. Tactical vests are fine too but you sometimes don't get the flexibility of plate carriers since most of their pouches are more "static" (ie. You cannot change them).
