I use the First Choice vest, which replaced my Second Chance Ultima vest. I'm very happy with it, though it's slightly heavier. It's comfortable and not excessively hot. I also like that it's stab resistant. As I'm relatively new on my Dept. I had a choice of what I could have, as only my vest was being purchased. The rest of my Dept. has the Safariland vest which has a stiffer more plastic feel than the First Choice.
