  1. The pockets for trauma plates how big?

    Front and backplates are bottom loading, side plates are top loading and have came out in IED blasts you can reinforce by tieing them down with para cord or plasti cuffs i doubt black nasty will hold in an IED strike.
    hope that helps.
  3. The side pockets seem just that little bit too small to make maximum use of the velcro closure...or is that just on mine?
  4. nope you're not alone there Boxy, my sideplate pockets were tighter than a proverbial tight thing but unable to fasten
  5. Yep same here ,my side plates were uber tight in their pockets!
