Thoughts on personal armor in a SHTF situation. The pros are quite obviously more protection from various threats based on how much and what kind of armor you're wearing. The cons of course are more weight slows you down. I have a pair of bracers made from fairly thick stiff leather I wear to Renaissance fairs. The cover my entire forearm. They're powerless against a firearm and only cover my forearm. Ballistic armor is expensive and again slows you down if your objective is to move fast. Just curious as to people thoughts on the matter is all.
