Generally IFAK location is standardized to the left side of the armor as far back as you can reach it with both hands. Dump pouch makes a lot of sense to place it low and far back on the belt.There are several standalone plate carriers (Eagle plate carrier) but make sure to get stand alone plates to avoid spall issues.There are alot of people that prefer the standalone carriers and many use a front plate alone but one read through blackhawk down answered that for me(you really never know where the threat is even in a LE environment,did the guy you are set up on call his bud with a bolt gun to set up on you?).Soft armor is lighter and more comfortable and has more coverage in most cases,but is threat level deficient in some environments and can be hotter in warm climates.One option I favor is the use of a concealable full coverage vest with a plate carrier over,less coverage than the tac vests but better and more adaptable than the plate carrier alone.
