DBT FAPC is another good option.

Yeah, a bit tricky to get hold of that where I live. And if not tricky, definitely expensive.

I'm about 169, 72kg and use a 6094A. It's very decently sized and gives great coverage, but for me it's a little long to run a belt setup comfortably. I have tried but it just rides too high to have any good use, so I just run a riggers belt with my holster and a multitool attached.

That vest looks like it's seen some stuff :D

As for the belt - soft style or hard one? On your belly or on the pants?

I use FirstSpear AGB, hard so it doesn't twist and bend. I usually have it in the belt loops, but I have used it on the outside when it's a matter of just having it on when dismounted.

I'm 5'10" 190lbs and will rock a small until it kills me and they prove it was still appropriately sized armor.

Friend of mine who's around 170cm and slim built has an Ronin Assaulter lite in small. It works out perfectly for him with a Ronin belt.
If you're sized for small plates it's an alternative to a JPC.
