I did some searching but didn't see this question, it was more centered around having BA in a stash and on the prep list. What I'm considering is every day wear. Nope, I am not LEO, or military, or an type of security contractor. I am a suburban white boy 80% of the time, and a normal northern MI man the remainder of the time. I am a business man that spends a lot of time in the office and warehouse. I make daily bank deposits, most of the time through the drive thru window. I make weekly visits to a private (by membership) shooting range with multiple ranges and I am starting to get into some organized training (with other students I do not know). I'm not worried about where I could better spend the money. I'm most concerned with what happens in the event of an accident or violent "every day" crime. I also carry concealed everyday. I'm looking for experience and recommendations from anyone that has worn it everyday. I'm not looking so much as should I, but how should I best ... I'm currently looking at a ProMax Gold Flex III-A vest to be worn concealed. I'm also considering a different carrier that will hold Level IV rifle plates for the Bad News Bag. These would most likely be purchased at BulletProofMe.com. My brother is recently returned from Afghanistan. His counsel is that its hot and heavy, but it saved him twice. Well, once, a mag carrier saved him the second time. He sees the operational need or plates in his field, but not domestically under the current circumstances. His top two priorities were clearly the ability to stop the projectile, but next was comfort. If its not comfortable, he doesn't think I'll be as likely to pull it on, especially in the warmest days of summer. Last thing, is it reasonable to think that I can conceal this to 99% of the population? I am 6', a fairly lean 180-185lbs. I have a long torso and short legs. Thanks for all input. I'm not sure where else to go to ask. Hopefully with a little feedback here, I can make a better choice when I call and talk to the seller.
