My AWS OCPC is above (but I got some new pics of it so I'll post them up anyways), that is now loaded up with my level IV plates and used more for real life/work stuff. I recently acquired a Flyye 609

A homebrew mod, I was trying to get proper tubes from a Scandinavian supplier but these started appearing on ebay. Nowadays you can buy FMA/TMC cummerbund with them fitted. I did a little write up

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.
