    Damn these guys really need a PR consultant - A Good presentation of equipment MAKE ALOT of difference!! - Showing the Actual Bullet proof plates will always go a long way in showing achieved Tech

    Still i know these are phototypes and hopefully final production variants will be better fitted with better ergonomics
