    Those are all valid points. It comes down to one's own level of comfort with the product. If one can throw the stuff on and not worry that one might have gotten the bad one, then that is great. Otherwise, one might feel more comfortable not having that concern in the back of his/her mind.

    I gotta figure out a way to mount this thing, at least long enough to get a picture of it.

    EXACTLY. More Below Kirky-Fried's commentary...

    Seems you did not read my post that Think quoted, then U quoted him...
    I have no doubts that the chinese can produce a solid product. I just firmly believe that they will start out really awesome get rave reviews then dial back the QC, like they always do. Especially for selling to US Patriots, whom they may eventually face in conflict. Yes that is basically conspiracy stuff, but it fits their MO to a "T". W/O a conspiracy, any thinking person can figure out that a manufacturer can start out with awesome stuff, gain a good rep and then ease up a little to increase profit margins. Pick one or the other, but the Chinese have done that a lot. RE: Covid Masks

    no, I read it. I just think that we are well past that point if they were going to do it. They've been shipping these steel plates for several years now, from what I can tell. The video I embedded is from a year and a half ago. If they were going to spike the qc, it should have been a fair time back now.

    Peace favor your sword (mobile)

    [​IMG] In the spirit of the thread, I decided to pass on the chain mail suit with matching tie. Might have gone for it last year while I was still teaching, but now its just a little ... over dressed. Besides, I can't hide my fully semiautomatic JHP with belt fed clipozine under it.

    You probably would be more comfortable in plate armour...

    The first set is based on Char Aina plate and uses a small amount of metal,
    whereas,
    the second set, Wisby plate, uses more material.

    Note: I'm not advocating stealing stip signs as that is illegal but,
    showing just how small an amount of metal is needed to provide some protection.

    Great for knife attacks, but I think most of it is useless against modern firearms. Besides, it tires me out too fast

    The interesting thing about the Wisby plates is that the metal is worn inside the backing material, usually leather, but, could be layers of denim or linen contact cemented together.

    Several hard slashes will a sharp blade will render it useless as the plates will separate and fall to the ground.

    Thus,
    in my humble opinion,
    it would be for more beneficial to mount the metal on the outside of the backing material.

    While I agree that this would make everything more practical, it would no longer be "tacticool". Except to the mall ninjas who Wanted everyone to see his cool plate armor
