The K5 and K19 are about as good as it gets and basically impossible to beat for the price as long as berry compliance isn’t a requirement for you! I love mine and use it very often for training and duty.
I run 8”-10” level IV ceramic plates. The plate fits great in the front but the it’s extremely difficult to get the level IV in the rear pouch. I know you want it to be snug so it doesn’t bounce around when generally on the move or when running during a stress course but the rear pouch is so snug/tight it’s almost as if I need to go to a thinner plate; possibly a lever III or a IIIA.. just saying.
Comfortable, adjustable, great built quality, awesome vest, thanks guys
Construction is excellent. Padded very well. Fits my large SAPI Hesco plates. Very happy with this.
