Hi, guys!

So, I got myself a new plate carrier http://www.beezcombatsystems.com/BCS-Pl ... S-PC-M.htm (pic at the end of the post)
Made my setup and I bumped into a problem - the vest is OK balanced, until I add water to the back. That causes the front to go upwards (and the back to go down) and I can feel the front plate poking my Adam's apple. That ain't right.

So, I thought about the simple solutions - add more weight to the front - not possible, no space.. Remove some weight from the back - nowhere else to put it. Outside of moving my water to a canteen and putting it on the belt - is there any other solution? Have to mention the vest is nice and tight, it's at the point where if I make it tighter - it's gonna get hard to breathe.

Wondering if there is any way too attach my gun sling so that it would pull the vest in the other direction. Maybe weaving it through the carry handle? Any ideas?

Just a nylon strap (kinda like a soft belt) with molle sleeves that close with velcro around the strap. Also, on the back PC has a sleeve through which the nylon belt goes. So it's not fixed in the back part. Hope I'm making sense.

Try to change this cummerbund setup for something elastic (and wide), the elastic cummerbund will help the plate carrier to adapt to you body so it should be able to absorb part (or all) the shifting and movement caused by the excessive weight in the rear area.
