    I'm 4'11, 85 pounds. I currently have a Condor MBSS, but am looking to upgrade. I would like to have gear that's more Mil-sim. Any help would be appreciated. I am open to buying from all sites , so fire away.

    You should look into JPCs. It would be a good PC for your size and they are rather popular and Tacti-cool. I just got mine today.

    I just posted this in another thread, so I'll quote it for ya.

    Of course, Flyye and Pantac were not already suggested to you personally. Those are our go-to sites and brands for good-quality repro gear around here. I'd suggest either:

    http://www.shootercbgear.com/product_info.php?cPath=22_50_51_95&products_id=673
    or
    http://www.shootercbgear.com/product_info.php?cPath=22_50_51_95&products_id=4232

    Now, you're fairly small (not fully grown, perhaps?) so you'll need to remember that all of this is based off of products made for physically fit, grown men. That's just the nature of the beast, unfortunately.

    I would suggest the JPC, but I'm biased against it and don't feel that TMC warrants the money. On the other hand, it IS a small plate carrier. If it interested you, OP, here's a link to it:

    Don't get a banshee, they suck. Get a Multicam jpc if you have to get one. Have you looked at 6094 style PCs?

    I thought 6094's were on the normal-sized person category.

    They are, but you can sintch them down pretty good. Now that I think of it, get the JPC.

    Max, someone explained awhile ago why they suck. I forgot who and why though.:/

    How do you adjust the girth on a JPC

    I'm 235lbs and my JPC fits me fine but it would work perfectly for someone with a smaller frame.

    Please do, and is there sizes? Like S , M, L, XL. Because I'm not seeing sizes on shootercb, but on Crye precision there is.

    You but the web cumber-bun where you need it then you take a cord and weave it into the molle on the PC to the cummerbund. Sorry if that does not make much sense. It's rather hard to explain in text.

    Not TMCs is in one size. I believe it is a medium
    But I think that will be fine for you. I think it is more for the size of the SAPI Plate than anything.

    Makes sense. So, no Velcro?

    Yes there is also Velcro on the front of the cummerbund like a traditional PC.

    It's a very nice PC but I would suggest anding some padding to the "shoulder-pads" so make it more comfortable.

    I'm sorry, Mike, but this is really bugging me. It's spelled cummerbund, not cumber-bun.
