Metal armor in my opinion at least in the long term. Early game the antirifle vest with its triple damage threshold can make you largely immune to rifles end game the metal armor reinforced with three plates and a regenerative vest accomplishes the same thing with very high resistance to mechanical/thermal/energy while healing any damage that does get through.
