The AR500 Armor Guardian Plate Carrier takes the highly desired features of the Micro Plate Carrier variants and adapts them to industry standard 10” x 12” body armor!
Designed as a rapid deploy-able quick-detach plate carrier, the Guardian series plate carrier feature Quick-Detach and fully adjustable shoulders and side straps via ITW GT Cobra buckles. This design provides enough real-estate via webbing for the necessary essentials while simultaneously reducing weight and bulk. The Guardian Plate Carrier can be donned and doffed in seconds with little training, and can be worn over existing soft armor and other gear.
Color matched inner mesh lining improves air flow and comfort while wearing the Guardian Plate carrier. All webbing features a soft loop front ID Panel for Patch, Chest Rig, and hook-and-loop pouch compatibility on both sides of the carrier. The heavy duty drag handle is low profile and snag free, with durable bartack stitching. Removable shoulder pads are included and constructed with the same padded mesh inner lining for improved comfort. Each shoulder pad features dual loop guides for attachments such as hydration tube, radio, tourniquet(s), or D-Rings.
Note: Made of NON-Ballistic materials.
