Reply to "Proper wear of Hard Armor (with diagram)"

Below is a picture that demonstrates the impossible positioning of a side plate in order to protect your heart and its immediate blood vessels.

Keep in mind that side plates were originally intended to prevent wounds that would result in eventual death from bleeding out due to an abdominal would.

Optimal positioning of a side plate would be as high as is comfortable without impeding movement. that way you will hopefully cover the lower portion of your heart, your respiratory diaphragm, part of your liver and kidneys.
