AR500 Armor® XL Plate Carrier Package with Level III 11” x 14” Body Armor and Pouches - (Carrier made of NON-Ballistic materials)

The AR500 Armor® XL Plate Carrier is our largest plate carrier, designed for operators who are searching for an Extra Large complete body armor solution. The XL Plate Carrier is able to accommodate our Extra Large 11" x 14" Level III Advanced Shooters Cut plates, in addition to SPEAR and BALCS soft armor IIIA panels. The AR500 Armor® XL Plate Carrier offers the operator increased coverage by utilizing our larger 11" X 14" body armor, while providing more real-estate by way of MOLLE for additional gear and pouches.

The plate pocket is built-in, internally, and includes an adjustable retention strap allowing the operator to position the plate within the pocket. The SPEAR/BALCS sleeve includes a removable padded insert which can be used in place of IIIA panels for additional comfort with hard armor installed. The XL Plate Carrier also accepts our 10” x 12” ASC body armor plates.

The shoulder straps are fully adjustable for ride height and include removable padded shoulder straps with built-in hydration tube guides. The cummerbund is removable, fully adjustable for girth and features side plate pouches for soft armor inserts in 6” x 6” or 6” x 8” (It will not accept hard armor side panels without additional side plate pouches). The XL Plate Carrier is lined with padded mesh designed to improve air flow and comfort and features quick pull tabs on the front cummerbund flap.

Great!!! Review by Chef
I ordered the package over the 4th of July I believe. Great price and great product (Posted on 9/10/2017)
Hefty in All the Right Ways Review by Samuel
Solid construction, quality armor, full suite of included accessories — the only thing I added was a matching Condor 12-gauge shell holder. Built to last! (Posted on 6/11/2017)
Review from Mark Morley Review by Mark Morley
Very well built and accurate description. Received it in 3 weeks just as I was told. Couldn't ask for better product or service. (Posted on 8/13/2016)
Review from Jim C. Review by Jim C.
Ordered this set in April and received it in mid-June. I ordered this as a replacement to my IOTV with ceramic plates set that I was issued. The IOTV has some advantages over this one but still falls short in many areas. First off, I am a larger guy, 6 foot 285 lbs. With my IOTV kit with the thick ceramic plates your range is limited and the vest itself feels cumbersome and difficult to move around in. This vest with the thinner plates is great, it fits well on me, I feel I have better coverage with these plates over the ceramic ones and I do not have to worry about dropping a plate or damaging one and having the plate go to waste. Taking the vest on and off (even with the side plates one) is quick and easy easily half the time it takes to put on an IOTV vest properly. The couple things I think I would like to have on this vest (and I know AR500 does not produce the vest) is an option to add some soft armor like around the collar area or a way to add shoulder/arm armor or for the groin (like the IOTV does). Other that than that this is a great system. 5 stars without question! (Posted on 7/21/2015)

Excellent quality, perfect fit and function. Took a little longer than expected to receive but it was worth the wait. (Posted on 5/5/2015)
Review from P.A.M. Recovery Review by P.A.M. Recovery
The quality of their product shows in the backlog they a struggling to fill. (Everybody wants AR500) I am 6'7" 250lbs. and the 11X14 plates fit the bill for the coverage I need. The 10 weeks lead time came and went and I was told it was going to be another 6 to 8 weeks for the carriers to come in. Needless to say I was not happy. But Krystal and Cecelia provided me with great customer service and presented an option so my order could be filled immediately. I ended up switching carriers to the Operator II which has the capability to handle the large plates I need for coverage. Problem solved, great customer service, great product, happy customer! I will be back for any other equipment needs as they are consistently expanding their line of quality products. Thank you one and all at AR500 Armor. HOOAH (Posted on 4/23/2015)
Review from John Witherspoon Review by John Witherspoon
The unit fits well, I still have a little adjusting to do, it rides high and tight. Quality construction, I am large and hard to fit in the XL fits well and with some adjustment would expand out to fit over a jacket as well.
The pistol holster is not my favorite but probably because I have not figured out the best positioning and fit for it. I am sure that will get better as I make adjustments.
My personal preference is for pouches with elastic cords over mags to secure and not full covers (don't particularly like the extra motion and ripping sound of the Velcro in mag pouches) but the pouches are well constructed and have a good fit.
All in all a great product. My only complaint would be the amount of time it takes to receive it but I guess that is just a testament to the popularity of the product. They did give it to me on time or even a few days before time promised for my scheduled delivery from the website.
Good job AR 500. (Posted on 4/15/2015)

Review from Michael Calles Review by Michael Calles
Great package!! Of course its heavy, its steel plate armor! Im 6'0" 280, not a small guy, and it fits perfect. Adjustable if need be. I ran this throughout a day of training, and while it feels heavy at first, it gets lighter after an hour or so, and stays comfortable. (Posted on 6/13/2014)
Review from Angela Review by Angela
This package is well thought out . Reminds me of my time in the army . Good quality, Great value , and Low maintenance ! If you want something to help defend your life , this makes a great addition . Shape up though she's heavy. I also picked up the side plates and HSGI tacos to go with ( I sport a 308 ). Will be back for more guaranteed . (Posted on 6/9/2014)
