The AR500 Armor® Micro Plate Carrier is an excellent option for small or female frames, or those looking to reduce weight but still gain protection of your vitals. Make no mistake, our 8" x 10" body armor still provides adequate coverage of your heart, blood vessels above your heart, and a good portion of your lungs even on larger individuals. It's a common misnomer than larger is better. When it comes to armor, protection and mobility are the ideal choices. The AR500 Armor® Micro Plate Carrier is compact yet effective for a variety of frames, youth to adult.
Proudly made in the USA, our Micro Plate Carrier features high quality stitching and has been engineered to last. Shoulder and side mounted ITW GT Cobra Buckles make donning and doffing a dull affair. The Micro Plate Carrier simply slides over your heard, or a single shoulder, and can be quickly buckled up and tightened down. As well as quickly removed by simply releasing a single shoulder and side cobra buckle. The Micro Plate Carrier features intentionally sized shoulder strap length allowing the widest range of compatibility of sizes possible, on both our adult and youth configurations. Once adjusted, simply loopback the shoulder strap and secure as needed. Mesh inner webbing with patterned channels improve air flow and comfort when worn for longer durations. Front & Back webbing designed for MOLLE pouches and front side upper and lower Velcro sections allow for ID patches top & bottom, or a lower mounted chest rig (with optional chest rig adapter kit).
The AR500 Armor® Micro Plate Carrier is the compact plate carrier you've been looking for, constructed to be comfortable, ruffed, and reliable! Compatible with all 8" x 10" hard and soft body armor and trauma pads.
