I understand the differences in real-world usage, but not sure how much of a difference it makes in airsoft.

A plate carrier does have the looks because you put extra pouches onto it and show off your patches.

A plate carrier serves no purpose in airsoft other than giving more Molle area. You can put a fake plate into it.

Both tactical vest and plate carrier will make you hotter on a hot day.

I prefer a light weight chest rig and stay cool.
