For those who don't have any, but are interested, ebay is the mother lode for new and used armor that is a mere fraction of it's usual MSRP.

I have two IIIA vests. A US Armor concealment model, and a Safariland semi concealment model, which i use for work when i'm in really bad areas.

Don't have any but definitely interested in getting some. Thanks for the tip on ebay, that is one place I wouldn't have thought to look for it.

Yes, but I keep it soft armor (III-A), so as to remain lightweight & flexible.  I do have the full schmeel though - neck/collar, DAPS, groin protection.  The family jewels MUST survive! Angel

So what's the best approach to use in combination with a tactical vest? When I bought my vest I recall reading a review where somebody said it fit over their issued plate carriers just fine. Anything in particular to look out for there?

Friend of mine, a LEO, told me they're not wearing steel trauma plates anymore because of the risk of facial ricochet...

I still have my old US Armor IIA vests, and I know I should replace them. But...I don't want to go from the frying pan to the fire.
