Are you going for combat effectiveness? Then a lightweight PC over all others. Get one that's naked (no prepositioned pouches), and full horizontal molle strapped. A modern lightweight PC is designed to only cover your vital organs, instead of being a body oven. The goal of these current manufacturers is to come in very lightweight off the hop, usually only a pound or two for starters. You can than add the pouches you need, where you need them, and have the ridgity to keep your gear fit comfortably. You'll experience less weight drag on your shoulders from a PC, and less movement of your kit while your moving. Constantly shifting weight from magazines, hydration bladder, etc, causes fatigue. A Properly fitted PC can mitigate this, a vest cannot. Depending on your budget, I'd recommend a UR Tactical Easy Plate or Condor Cyclone, up to Crye JPC or a High Ground PC. If you're strictly going for look, then get what you like.
ďREALITY IS LIKE A STONE. TO MANY ITíS HARD AND COLD, THEY CANíT HUG IT OR EAT IT, IT ONLY FRUSTERATES THEM AND DOESNíT DO THEM MUCH GOOD. TO OTHERS ITíS STRONG AND DEPENDABLE, YOU CAN BUILD WITH IT, BUILD UPON IT, OR WORK WITH IT, ALSO USE IT TO SMASH PEOPLE IN THE FACE.Ē
