    Have had Plate Carrier for week and so far its well worth the cost. It fit my existing Esapi 10 by 12 ceramic plates perfectly. I have done several .1 mile sprints wearing plate carrier and for me at 5'9" 175 lbs, it does not restrict movement, feels snug against my upper body. Looking forward to playing airsoft with it on Sunday.
