The main problem a lot of people face is taking proper measurements, or even understanding what to measure. Based on everything I've seen, this happens a lot and is a source of confusion and worry. The knee-jerk reaction that ends up occurring is people ordering a larger size PC than needed based on the incorrect belief that you'll get more coverage and more protection.
Sizing up on PC fit ends up leading to two serious issues:
- The first issue is that you can no longer get into your proper shooting stance, and can therefore no longer properly employ your weapon. Unless you don't mind missing tangos, you can see how this would pose an issue.
- Secondly, is the loss of mobility and the added weight of the extra plating and material. This can have a significant impact over the long haul. You aren't just wearing plates - you are fighting in them.
You don't want to be that armored turtle, heavy on defense but not capable of offense. Finding that middle ground of protection is where you want to be. The general rule of thumb for minimum coverage is from your jugular notch to your belly button vertically and nipple to nipple horizontally.
This is what your plate carrier should be protecting:
This is the minimum amount of coverage and allows you to sit comfortably, properly punch your weapon out, and be able to move with the least amount of hindering. You can go larger but always remember the balancing act of offense versus defense and that it is all a give-and-take scenario.
Once you have measured that area on your body, make cardboard cutouts of different plate sizes, and try them on and see what works best for your body type. Going through these extra steps add some time to the process and may feel a little silly, but I highly recommend taking the time. Once you are comfortable, you can confidently order your proper plate and PC with confidence.
