The Defender Low Visibility Plate Carrier was designed for those who need to wear rigid ballistic plates while maintaining a low profile silhouette, without giving up to the chance to scale from a minimalist solution to a combat configuration.
The design allows to accommodate any type of rigid ballistic plates, such as SAPI, E-SAPI, Swimmer Cut, rectangular and more. Thanks to the 4-way stretch elastic fabric in the inner part, the plate pouch can adapt in size to the ballistic protection carried and wrap it to minimize the bulk of the plate carrier. For the same reason, the shoulder straps are made of MIL-W-17337, Class 2 webbing in 2" width, without added padding.
The supplied Low Visibility Elastic Cummerbund, made of MIL-W-5664 or Woven elastic, features a series of multi-role elastic pouches on each side that provide an inherently conforming pressure to the content that is reliable and repeatable. The pouches can be used to carry a large gamut of rifle magazines, civilian or military radios, smoke grenades, medical gear, or anything you can fit in. The cummerbund can be replaced with other models that feature Velcro® hook and loop application and adjustment system.
The mag pouch 5.56 Mag Velcro Insert triple can hold 3 magazines for AR / M4 platform with minimum weight and bulk. The laser-cut Hypalon fabric, together with the elastic retention, ensure excellent magazine retention.
Thanks to the ITW Nexus® QASM buckles on the front, the Defender LVPC can be quickly equipped with front panels such as the Modular Reconnaissance Chest Rig or the Modular Reconnaissance Task Bag. Buckles can be removed to eliminate any protrusions when used as a concealed body armour for clandestine or undercover operations.
The Defender Low visibility Plate Carrier is available in two sizes:
• the SM/MD size accommodates ballistic plates in Small or Medium size and the cummerbund features 3 elastic pockets per side
• the LG/XL size accommodates ballistic plates in Large or X-Large size and the cummerbund features 4 elastic pockets per side
