Vest is from 1987 btw, so it wasn't Russian yet, it was still Soviet :)

Heavy much?

 

 

How much does that russian vest weigh?

 

Do the panels flap around much?

 

It's about 9kg I think. I'm missing a couple of plates so don't know the exact full weight. It is noticably heavier in the front though. Not much flapping around if you secure it properly and adjust it to your size.

 

 

Why titanium in the front and ceramic in the back?

They probably figured ceramic in front and back would be too heavy and did this to still offer some protection.

 

Besides, the only way you should move is toward the enemy :P Just kidding. The rear shouldn't really be considered to be bulletproof, it's more for protection against shrapnel.

 

It's doable to skirmish in it, though mid summer it's not that handy.

What is a DFLCS?

 

On the Russian rig, you guys need to realize that all the mini pouches for plates are covered by the vest when it's fully assembled, so they're not going to flap anywhere.
