Used to wear it everyday plus all the other gear I wore and over 100 deg. Talking about a sweaty mess. And I wasn't even a cop.
I wore one for five years humping the brush. That was before they gave you cool T-shirts that didn't stick to your skin. You would pull out the vest a little bit and give yourself a steam bath for your face. When I would come home and drop the duty best, pul of the shirt, then the dump the vest, my wife would laugh at me like a dog with its head stuck in a bag when I would try to peal off that drenched T-shirt.
So, body armor is not fun or glamorous. But, it is helpful when people run from danger and you run to it.
