I recently sold my old PASGT vest and bought an Interceptor. There seems to be a lot of complaints on the interweb that this a crummy vest.
Any body armour experts care to chime in?

Thanks

Ballistically its top notch. The usual complaints are about it being front opening (but its much more secure than the PASGT) and it being uncomfortable with the collar/yoke assembly installed. Get ready for the people asking you the hows and wheres of where you got it...

It's lighter. Especially noticeable when you've got plates in both.

I never liked the PASGT vest. I didn't find a size I was comfortable with. I was either swimming in my armor, or it was kevlar spandex.

Civilian versions are available. I believe they have a zipper in place of the velcro under the front flap. I'm not an expert though. My Interceptor is velcro all around. I don't mind the yoke so much, but I haven't worn it for extended periods of time either.

And in case you want to question how I got mine, I work for the .mil.
