So i am in the market for a plate carrier.

Looking for advice on who has good quality product

Does price always determine queality in this area like it does in most other gun related areas. ( i understand there are exceptions)

I have looked at Blackhawk, Voodoo, US PALM.

Also heard alot of good stuff about Tactical Tailor. and saw the pic thread.

advice???

Why do you need a pc?

Seems as though everyone and their kid wants a pc even if the need hasnt been defined but $$ are there to burn

If you have an H3 to get one then get an SKD pig or a Mayflower APC with velocity plates.... WHY SKIMP....


Read through the existing threads here

Pc's have been discussed on more than one occasion

There are SEVERAL previous posts on this (maybe even on the first page). So I would check them out.

The Diamondback Tactical FAPC is the best bang for the buck out there in my experience.

I also have a buddy who privately purchased one for his tour in Afghanistan, and said he could not find any faults with it after an entire year of use.

I'll second the Diamondback vote. I have a FAPC Gen I and I love it, even if it does spend most of it's life in a closet. Solid stitching, good color, very comfortable fit. There are some known issues with the Gen I (shoulder flaps are annoying when donning/doffing), which were fixed in the Gen II, but they are more pricey. Also, no drag handle if that's an issue.

I'll third the Diamondback Tactical FAPC. I have the GEN II and it is very well made, comfortable, and affordable (esp. if you are mil/LE).
