    Browsing this thread alone, there are many instances of the vests being worn low without any smart device being attached to the chest area, as seen here, here, here, here, and here.

    This photo is interesting in that the two soldiers in the front row are roughly of the same size, and yet one wears it low and the other wears it high.

    Take them as what you will, but mounting a smart device to the chest area is the least plausible cause of wearing the vests low.

    And finally, allegedly the standard optic for the new assault rifle, with green cross-hairs.

    Uhhh dude, in 4 out of the 5 examples you've given, the smart device can clearly be seen if you look a bit more closely o_O

    Obviously not everyone is going to agree with my theory, and that's alright. But as it stands, you've presented very little hard evidence to counter it. In fact, you contradict yourself with a lot of what you have posted.

    Yes, not all of them wear the vest so low, but so far, they've only consistently done so when the device is attached.

    What are you trying to prove with that? All it shows is that when the device is absent, most of them wear it properly.

    I'm sorry, but barely any of what you've presented so far supports this.

    In fact, from the pictures you've posted, I'm even more convinced that my theory is correct.

    Until I'm presented with a more convincing counter-argument and evidence, or we get an official explanation from the PLA, that's the theory I'm going to stick with.

    Yes I can see that. The purpose of it was to show an unobstructed picture of the vest.

    Holy &$*^, I must have been temporarily blind, because I can't explain how I could have missed those smart devices otherwise. My old age really is showing.

    My apologies, but you are onto something here. I sure hope they implement an "accordion" spine to the folio.

    No worries, we're all just here to observe, share, and discuss.

    And I apologize if my response was a bit snappy, I just wanted to make sure my point got across.

    No worries and no need to apologize. I'm pretty thick-skinned. Back-and-forth is healthy. :)
