I currently have a Banshee PC. I think it's great, except the more I train and work with it the more the buckles on the shoulders are bothering me. When I shoulder my rifle they cause it to sit awkwardly. I want to keep consistency with where I shoulder my rifle weather the PC is on or off. I just don't really think it is working for me.
I saw another members Mayflower APC in the plate carrier thread and thought it looked like a great design. I am considering selling the Banshee and using that money to fund an APC. Is there any reason I shouldn't do this? Does the Mayflower have any advantages over the Banshee?
Another question I was looking at the sizing for the Mayflower. It looks like the cummerbund and the plate "bags" are two different sizes. At my navel I am 36" around so I would need the small cummerbund, but how are the plate bags sized? Does it depend on what size plates you have or is there a chest measurement you have to take? My plates are 10x12.
