The strong suit of the SHIFT 360 seems to be its ability to adapt to both the armor inserts being used as well as the operator bearing the armor. A common problem I see with newer users to armor systems is poor fitment with either the wrong size carrier being worn or not having the correct sized carrier adjusted correctly to fit the wearer. The SHIFT 360 could be a great place to start for your first plate carrier.
