For this price point it’s a very well constructed and solid carrier. Nothing super fancy but comfortable and solid design. Velcro is strong and easily adjustable to fit most. Bought this carrier for my wife strictly for shtf/bug out ops. Best carrier for the price
The shoulders are super wide. Feels like it’s about to fall off my shoulders. If wearing a backpack it causes the straps to ride on my neck.
Very well made black friday sale was a deal i couldnt pass up. Very happy with my purchase.
Good: Slick design without anything extra. Material and seams feel sturdy. Bad: Shoulder strap buckles are thin polymer pieces. Shoulder straps are common point of failure and should be reinforced. I think steel should be a better choice, as was with army issued carriers. Cummerbund is not tied into the back of carrier, but floats in the back pocket. Not going be as tight fit as it should be. Shoulder straps are too long. The hook section of velcro must be pushed beyond loop part to get desired height for the chest plate (I'm 6.2). Conclusion: I got carrier for clearance price, so I can’t complain, but I wouldn’t pay full price for it.
The main concern I have was that the cummerbund was way to small for me. So small I could t use it and had to acquire another one. So while the plate carrier was quite nice it did suck having to do that
Forms to the body well and is a solid plate carrier.
Was a steal and great quality so happy it didn't break my wallet
I was worried it wouldn’t be that great due to price but if you want to keep your kit minimalistic this is definitely the carrier for you weight distribution is excellent and there is plenty of MOLLE for you to have whatever you need on it!! Highly recommend
Great system, great quality, even better price. Arrived 3 days after ordering, well packaged. Definitely recommend as an affordable, yet quality plate carrier. For reference I'm 6', 210lbs and it adjusted perfectly to my build.
