The new Armored Republic Independence™ plate carrier is 100% made in America with everything you need and nothing you don’t.
No Frills, Full Functionality
This no-frills carrier has PALS webbing for your MOLLE-compatible pouches and accessories, and a skeletonized cummerbund to reduce weight. Perfect for those who are looking for an American-made, entry-level carrier.
The carrier is constructed of 500D nylon for the perfect balance between durability and weight reduction. Each row of PALS webbing is bar-tack reinforced for maximum durability, and we use Hypalon® for the shoulder straps for added strength. Front PALS webbing is compatible with most chest rig adapters, and allow for upper and lower mounting options.
The AR Independence™ plate carrier is proudly made in our Phoenix, AZ facility.
