I liked the other RTF vest (Responder) better, but it was too small. Not sure how functional this will be. Neither plate carrier nor soft armor vest, but sort of a combination of both. Doesn't cover much of the chest, but the cummerbund does a pretty good job of the sides and abdomen. This is the "bigger" alternative. Putting the pieces together is not intuitive, and instructions are not included. On-line videos are OK but it still required several tries. First impressions are "kludgy."
