    1st review

    I have found it comfortable. Does not curl up or ride up my chest/neck when sitting down. Would further recommend the full wrap coverage pattern for under the arms. Also includes two pockets for trauma plates.

    I had the Second Chance Level III, but this was back in the 1980's, all Kevlar w/shock plate, heavy, bulky, but it was worth it. Never went on duty without it!

    I purchased my own Second Chance IIIA vest in the "Max Coverage" system. After a week of wearing I would never swap out for another vest! This vest never scrunches, is thin, and breathable. Fits like a glove.

    Very comfortable for all day wear. Mine has the removable stab protection soft kevlar in the front. While the material is flexible, the NIJ recommends that you don't fold the vest or bend it in any way; doing so compromises the soft kevlar and could alter performance.

    Comfortable, lightweight...and most importantly of all.... I took a 9mm round in the chest with this vest on...left a nice bruise for a week or so...but I'm still here to brag about how well this vest works......
