AR500 Armor® Emergency Personal Carrier (EPC) - (Carrier made of NON-Ballistic materials)

The AR500 Armor® Emergency Personal Carrier is a rapidly deployable armor system designed to accommodate our entire line of body armor. The unique construction provides unmatched coverage at an unbeatable price point. Compatible with all of our body armor from 8" x 10" to our 11" X 15" backpack panel, the EPC features a unique design allowing easy donning and doffing in emergency situations.

Following the philosophy of a life jacket our Emergency Personal Carrier simply drops over your head and is secured via a Cobra Buckle on the side. Once buckled the carrier can quickly be adjusted for a secure fit. The profile and adjustment range allow for nearly limitless adjustments for all frames and sizes, in addition to objects such as seats. Flexible and affordable, the EPC is an ideal "VIP" or emergency plate carrier that will be ready when you need it most at a moment's notice.

Customer Reviews

Review from Dustywar Review by Dustywar
Very nice carrier. Could use a small improvement, it could use a Velcro tab to attach patches to. I like to have my blood type attached to all my body armor. I've sewed my own velcro tab on, so I'm happy! For the price, I don't understand why everyone doesn't own one or two of these. I'll be ordering another one. (Posted on 1/4/2016)

Very lightweight and flexible. Protection with good price. (Posted on 5/27/2015)
Review from Christopher Marrone Review by Christopher Marrone
I would have rated it perfect except the 8x10 plate is a bit small and floats around a lot and provides coverage of the vitals but its minimal. I wish I would have gotten the larger plate option.

With that said this will give you protection at an affordable price. I wear it under my security uniform its comfortable and fits but you can tell I'm wearing a vest which is fine because I'm an armed guard and most of us wear some sort of vest. (Posted on 4/5/2015)
