I'm wanting to buy a vest and am wondering if there is any advantage or disadvantages to getting a plate carrier vest with molle attachments?

Thanks,
Mark

if your going to run rifle plates get a plate carrier, if your not get a chest rig or vest.

I don't know for sure if i'll ever use plates but I like the idea of being able to if necessary. Will I have any disadvantages to using a plate carrier without the plates?

Yes. The plate carrier will sag and not fit as intended without plates. See many of the reviews of the HSGI Wee/Wasatch that did not fit well when run without plates.

SOME will sag. Not all.

Weesatch/Wasatch, very likely to yes.
Eagle Plate carrier, will not.
Tactical Tailor plate carrier, doesn't with me. I've not read any other reports one way or another.

You're easier to hit?

Was it a trick question?

i have a set of plates so you better believe that i am gonna have a plate carrier. i would suggest a plate carrier with plenty of molle attachment points if you want to run plates, if not then like they said just get a chest rig.
