    Plate Carrier questions/comparisons

    Hi guys!

    Well currently I run an OE Tech MPS plate carrier, but am currently put off by its lack of quality. So i have been saving up for a new one, something of much higher quality. Basically what I'm saying is no more tac gear purchases for ASGI :eek:.

    I have narrowed it down to four PCs that i have found while searching through youtube and the interwebz. Also I am willing to spend <$200 at most and would like it in multicam.

    First off the mid-threat body armor plate carrier from toysoldier.com
    http://www.toysoldier.com.hk/product_details.php?pid=60
    I like it, but am put off by its lack of molle webbing.

    Secondly the HERO LBT Style 6094A Plate Carrier.
    http://www.toysoldier.com.hk/product_details.php?pid=523
    This one looks good but i really want a multicam PC (i have all multicam gear) and this one doesn't come in multicam.

    Third the mayflower assault PC.
    http://www.mayflower-rc.org/store/7016/63/Assault-Plate-Carrier.html
    On this one everything seems great but I am not entirely anxious to spen $255 on a PC. (yet :p)

    Lastly the Tyr Tactical basic PC
    http://www.tyrtactical.com/products/details/chest-harnesses/general-plate-carrier/
    I really like everything about this one! However, I have no experience with TYR Tactical so I don't really know what to expect in terms of quality.

    If you have any other suggestions please offer up:D! I am willing to look at anything!

    Of those four, Mayflower APC by a mile. Your first two shouldn't share a post with the Mayflower.

    This. I saw that you were considering the APC and just completely disregarded your other options.

    I considered them for awhile when I was trying to look for a new plate carrier but eventually I decided against it for the sheer lack of first-person experience amongst sources I trust. It seems like everyone knows someone who knows someone who knows someone who really liked their plate carriers and chest rigs. On the other hand, their pouches have been lauded by many, especially their hydro carriers.

    The mayflower APC will serve you well and there is no doubt that you'll get a quality product. Go with that and never look back, bud.

    Ya, just a little bit of an update, my parents said they will not let me but a $255 plate carrier so I guess the Mayflower is out of the option.:mad: I guess in two more year there will no longer have control over me right? ;) So now that its out of the question it look like i will be getting the tyr tactical PC. I'll let you guys know when I get it!
