Thanks all for the input! I was just issued a Gen4 IOTV and like an idiot didn't check the panels for defects during initial issue - there is a pretty big stain of unknown origin on the front panel, so I am not sure if the kevlar is compromised. Since our armory doesn't have any spares and CIF is a 3 hour drive with  a 1 month wait for appointments, I wanted to figure out my options before we hit the range in 2 weeks.

To be honest, the kevlar is *probably* fine. Given that it seems pretty difficult to get spare IOTV bits commercially, and I am not planning on gut shooting myself, I will probably wait until I can get back to CIF. 

Appreciate y'all helping out!

Edit to add: the terrible things I would do for a plate carrier instead...
