If you are using a Phantom/Pantec wasatch Large plates dont fit from what ive heard. Medium is a safe bet, especially since the wasatch by Phantom is actually a Weesatch(slightly smaller version)

Pardon me for sounding quite silly, but why do you want plates like this for airsoft?

Medium plates for medium size vest, large plates for large size vest.
I've got a fake SAPI filled with sand that WEIGHS as much as a real one lol
I'm a small guy with no beer belly so I found them to be uncomfortable, but I cut out a plate shape from a 1/2" foam matress and it works great.

And to answer Aquamarine:
It adds alot of rigidity to your vest, keeps your mags from slapping your gut while running (great thing when you have 12), it absorbs alot of fall damage and prevents things like the end of a transmission from punching a hole in your ribcage when you fall on it

To simulate a realistic loadout's weight.

And yeah, thundercactus is correct. It DOES save your soft bits from impacts.. Falling on your gun would probably hurt a lot less... lol.

Try rolling down an embankment on your gun. That's a whole world of fun hehe.
