Here's what I've got so far. Missing a few things - Norotos mount, a handful of primary and secondary mags, some more Flyye .45 mag pouches... but that's the gist of my impression.

Can you guys give me some insight into why MARSOC, and even SEALs, CAG and whoever else, will tend to wear a plate carrier separately over a soft armour vest like the PACA? As opposed to using an all-in-one system for both plates and kevlar like the CIRAS, RAV or a DBT vest? Why add different layers and more straps and things to adjust?

In a nutshell if you have to strip off your second line you still have your armour on.

They use both. A CIRAS or MBAV includes soft armor and hard plates, and will be worn alone. MBSS doesn't have soft armor integrated, so they'll need hard plates.

+1 to both ex and Conker.

TBH, I still haven't gotten my PACA adjusted quite right... I've had it nearly a year now lol.

How come? It's as simple as trowing it on and ajusting the velcros.

a big plus when you have to lighten your load to work, like on a FOB when the threat level is higher than usual (no need to carry all you kit everywhere) or as you're diggin in (second line can be taken off and left on the ground within arms reach with you weapon), in a vehicle (if your the driver maybe), just to name a few example...
