Side Armor Worth its Weight

We thought this was a great story to relay the point of all around protection for body armor plates. It is certainly much better to always have the protection just in case you need it than lack coverage in certain areas that clearly by this account are quite important. Of course having the proper equipment to carry your armor and function appropriately are key to having an overall great protective system.

This British Soldier learned the hard way, but this is about as good as it gets in an instance when a Taliban fighter makes contact with a 7.62. Protective equipment has come a long way over the past decade and moments like this certainly make it all worthwhile.
