Depends on the mission. Home defense, I would prefer to get it on if I can. Full blown civil war, sure, be a sniper, but more realistically, in a societal breakdown their will be a multitude of factions running around being violent fucks.

Can't stay hidden in the shadows 24/7.

Actually I think it is easier to stay hidden in utter chaos. The loudest things tend to draw the most attention in a fire fight. While a sniper is the most deadly, people will instinctively focus on the people making the noise right in front of them. However I think there is a common misconception about war, it isn't constant combat. A lot of it is boring as fuck. In fact most of war was boring as fuck until some leave an IED on your road some random day. It is why they say complacency is a soldiers worst enemy, because nothing can happen months on end and you can only keep your alert level up for SO long.

But that's still semi organized. a societal collapse is a full blown battle royale. Youd very likely have to stay put during the day, and only move at night. You'd be under constant threat of ambush during the day and upon exit of your shelter.

I think thats what the other guy is getting at - if you're using this stateside it most likely won't be a war but conflict within 50yards, and if you live in a populated area it will be difficult to figure out who is friendly and who wants your shit until they are right on you. I think most people will agree with your points but I do believe this has other applications (wearing under a hoodie with your skittles and iced tea so you can get out of dodge before you get simmerd by zimmer)

That is why armor is good. If someone catches you unaware, it may guve you the chance to get out with as many holes as you started with.
