soft armor vs plates is basically mobility vs protection. the best protection would be soft armor with plate inserts. If you want to shoot and scoot go with just soft kevlar. The more and the thicker layers the better. Everything has a life span. Don't go to the army navy store and buy surplus plate armor or any armor for that matter and expect it to protect you. With any armor you get exactly what you pay for. Dragon skin is great, I would like to personally test it but don't have the funds to see it it holds up to what the company says it can. The military doesn't have it because it failed the environmental tests. The resin holding the disks would melt in extreme heat and it would freeze in extreme cold. It is great for civilian body armor if you want to shell out the $$$.
