Adaptive Plate Insert

Our Adaptive Plate Insert, formerly known as the Trauma Plate Insert, dramatically increases versatility by allowing you to easily create an in-conjunction armor system, reduce armor size, or add soft or hard trauma plates for heart and vital organ coverage. The Adaptive Plate Insert is compatible with both front & rear pockets, and accommodates 6” x 6”, 6” x 8”, and 8” x 10” armor sizes. Simply attach the insert to the attachment panel on the inner pocket of your Veritas™ or Testudo™ (Gen 2) plate carrier for your custom configured armor setup.

By using the Adaptive Plate Insert you can reduce the size of armor in the plate carrier to a smaller size – or – run the Adaptive Plate Insert in conjunction with the existing armor in your plate carrier. An ideal example would be to run Hybrid IIIA 10” x 12” body armor in your Veritas™ plate carrier, and use the Adaptive Plate Insert with AR500 Armor® III+ lightweight 6” x 8” armor. With this, you’ve created an in-conjunction system that maximizes weight reduction while increasing flexibility, without sacrificing rifle threat protection in the most vial of areas, your heart.

Our Adaptive Plate Insert will place your body armor at the top of the plate carrier for ideal right height, and does have room for adjustment to ensure a perfect fit. Inner plate retention straps and guides ensure a secure armor fit with all compatibles sizes.

  • AR500 Armor® Veritas™ Modular Plate Carrier

Nice insert Review by willy
Working 3 shift and a night owl I like to walking a local walking track and trail at night as there is very little(no) people to encounter at night. Wear high visibility clothes tell police that Im not up to anything and it is a safety item where everyone can see me. I wear concealable armor under clothes when it colder and a plate carrier(high visibilty yellow/oragno strips) and pack mace and firearm when walking. I got the inserts to wear 8x10 plates for some protection with soft armor 10x12 insert in my carrier. Not as heavy as 10x12 plates and a whole lot cooler in the summer nights here down south. Love them! (Posted on 3/7/2019)
Lightweight concealed plate carrier... Review by Running man
I bought two of these at Xmas time while on sale and then two 8" x 10" hybrid soft armor panels for inside of them. With some one sided Velcro that I bought on amazon I was able to cut lengths of the Velcro to make straps to fit comfortably over my shoulders and around my chest to hold these in place over my heart and lungs, front and back. A very lightweight and relatively concealable armor solution. I wish that these came in all of the sizes that they sell rimelig and hybrid panels. The product is very strong and high quality! Thank you AR500! (Posted on 3/4/2018)
