That's not realistic at all. How long do you think it took them to get all that stuff on? You saw how slow they moved. Do you think your kid's will even be able to move in all that? What's everyone's fitness level? Those two trained for that situation and it wasn't their first.

Just thought I'd let you all know that the account has already been suspended.

I'm sure a SAPI plate will stop a knife easily, it would be like trying to stab concrete. But SAPIs are an insert, the standard ballistic vest that they are used with is not stab proof.
Haha I thought that's what you meant, but we have experience with sapis. Not sure most would have extrapolated that.

Being A LEO and a corrections officer ive wore all types of body armor. Bear in mind that all body armor is NOT equal, there are different types and different levels of protection. If you have ever worn a vest for long periods of time you know that they arent very comfortable and you cant wait to get it off whenever your shift ends. IMO, i dont think that wearing body armor everday allday is a realistic thing to do but If you absolutely want to wear it then more power to you.

this is a second chance level IIIA ballistic vest with a 5"x8" steel trauma plate. The vest with the trauma plate weighs about 3lbs so it doesnt restrict mobility,although light i still wouldnt want to wear it 24/7

Haha...the sapi plates weigh like 12-22 lbs each for front or back and like half that for the sides. If three lbs is uncomfy imagine like 40-50 or so for those sapis. I'd hate to have to go to wal-mart in it. I don't even want to think about throat to ankles armor and trying to move around the house quickly from an intruder trying to get to a gun. Course if I'm wearing armor in the house I probably have a gun in my lap and claymores at the door.

Ok guys I think i know what I want, a condor carrier vest with 10 by 12 plates on the front and back with serpa gun hostler molle style and a few mag pockets, it's a weight of about 50 pounds and it's level 2 protection plates. And I will get a level one female vest for my wife. Now I said I think I know what I want? What do u guys think and I'm looking into Kevlar pads for my son.

You are wanting a tactical molle modular vest with attached holster and front and back trauma plates for everyday wear? Im not trying to offend you man but wanting all this kevlar for you and the family is extremely impractical and over the top. I have a family too so i understand about wanting to keep them safe, but keeping them covered in kevlar everyday isnt the best thing to do
