AR Freeman Plate Carrier with Armor Package
- Product Review (submitted on February 13, 2019):
- I pre-ordered the AR Freeman carrier when it was first announced in 2018 and waited patiently for it to arrive. I was seeking level III protection that would be easily concealed under a hoodie as well as be light enough to wear for extended periods. I was intrigued by the 9x9 size plate that the Freeman was built around and believed that it would suit my needs perfectly. After a slight delivery delay was spectacularly handled by AR500, the Freeman arrived today. It was exactly what I was hoping it to be: A small plate carrier with reduced weight that disappears under a hoodie. As I fitted it and tried the jump test, draw test, etc. I realized that this would be a great plate carrier to carry in a go-bag as a backup. It's quick to get on and covers the heart and large, vital blood vessels surrounding it without being too bulky. I haven't tried attaching anything to the laser cut front because, let's be honest, I didn't buy it for that. Well done AR500 - this is exactly what I was looking for.
