AR Freeman Plate Carrier with Armor Package
- Product Review (submitted on March 21, 2019):
- My PC came in yesterday and it does not disappoint. Extremely minimalistic, and as advertised it doesn't sacrifice real estate and provides maximum work space for efficient appendix draw while wearing it. This will definitely be my go to for range training, bedside readiness and my bug out kit, so I'll definitely be ordering at least 2 more. I really hope you guys plan on developing proprietary add on's to this plate carrier like a micro cummerbund. The only thing I could see being an issue is the shifting of the carrier when running or performing dynamic movements, but like I said, I think the addition of a micro style cummerbund would significantly mitigate that. I've watched different videos about plate carriers, which are worth it and heard criticisms like Mike of Garand Thumb, whom I admire and respect, as an Army Special Operations Veteran myself, his perspective on tactics, shooting and overall training philosophy...but he did say he doesn't subscribe to the reliability of AR500 armor. I understand many would argue why not save up until you can afford body armor costing you a month's worth of bills and I would inherently rebuttal that with the exact reason it would take a person who is constrained by financial responsibility to not just themselves, AR500 body armor is cost effective and let's face it; any protection regardless of the degree of that protection is better than nothing, additionally the consumer this is probably tailored to is the everyday citizen trying to "stay in the fight" or give themselves a fighting chance, not tier 1 operators running through sniper fire to assault an objective...so if anything, just know what your buying, its capabilities and its limitations. Bottom line, I highly recommend this product and it's featured at a no excuses price tag.
