AR500 Armor® Concealment Low Profile Plate Carrier - (Carrier made of NON-Ballistic materials)

AR500 Armor® Concealment Plate Carrier! Rifle threat protection designed for concealment where low visibility of your body armor is required. Every curvature and angle is specifically designed to minimize printing when worn concealed. Compatible with both AR500 Armor® Level IIIA Soft Armor, Level III hard Body Armor, Level IV Hard body Armor, and our Trauma Pads in both 10" x 12", and 11" x 14! The AR500 Armor® Concealment Plate Carrier is the carrier to beat. Imagine a plate carrier that fits under your regular Polo and offers rifle protection, it's now a reality. Our Concealment Plate Carrier does an exceptional job when paired with AR500 Armor® Curved 10” x 12” Level III Advanced Shooters Cut Body Armor. Ultra-Light Weight and Ultra Low-Profile result in a perfect concealment package under Polo's, Button-down Shirts, and Jackets.

This is a “Slick Side” plate carrier and is designed not to print under clothing. It features an elastic cummerbund which features the ability to add on optional side plate pouches that accept 6” x 6” or 6" x 8" side plate body armor. The ability to remove the side plate pouches further increases the carrier’s ability to stay concealed. 100% made in the USA, this is a professional grade plate carrier with duty use in mind.

Our recommendation for conceal rifle protection is to pair the Concealment plate carrier with (2) AR500 Armor® Curved Level III patent pending Advanced Shooters Cut 10” x 12” body armor plates. The curved model will aid in concealment and improve comfort. This carrier is designed to be concealed, and as a result does not have padded plate pockets which help prevent printing under clothes.

Excellent Review by Pops
It's gets plenty warm but what they claim is true. No special upsized shirts are needed. I got the soft 3A plates for staying incognito and keep a pair of the level 3 plates in the trunk in case I have a call out at Crazytown.
All around, very, very good rig. (Posted on 6/28/2019)
perfect fit, light and concealable Review by constable v
Quality great, fit is adjustable and does NOT ride up when sitting. Very comfortable and I use the 11x14 soft level 3a plates and pads. Highly recommend. Getting ready to purchase a second one for my other officer. (Posted on 5/24/2019)

Okay but not for long term use Review by Andy
Good quality but very uncomfortable. I work EMS wear it under my uniform for entire shift. It is unnoticeable but does have some drawbacks. Very uncomfortable on shoulders after 8+ hours. I’m currently looking to take the stock straps off and replace with Velcro on each end, like most other vest. Overall would definitely recommend this for any looking to have reasonable priced protection. (Posted on 3/8/2019)
Top quality Review by Jonathan
I was pleasantly surprised when I opened my new concealment carrier. The built quality in person doesn't come close to what I'd seen in pictures and video, it is outstanding. The stitching, materials and comfort are all above and beyond my expectations. I highly recommend this carrier, especially if you plan to conceal hard plates. It's not the most concealable option ive seen for soft armor though. (Posted on 6/21/2018)
Decent Product Review by Bob
I purchased mine about 4 years ago. Have used several times since, however be aware if you are a large, muscular individual be prepared to have the shoulder straps tailored to a wider stance so that they do not rub your neck constantly. I had to have my straps moved to more of an outward angle to avoid the problem. Once that was solved it has been fine. If I need another vest I will certainly consider one of these again.

Added level of protection Review by David Verified Purchase
Concealment Plate Carrier with curved plates fit me fine and comfortable with T shirt underneath, wore my regular shirt over it didn't show much printing without side pouches once carrier is broken in sure it'll be less, been wearing it as we speak walking around the house feels good not weighted down very happy with it and the quality, nice back up when you feel the need for it.

good Review by qwerty
I purchased one of these a while back and still wear it once and a while just to keep the feel of it sort of speak. It's what you would think, low profile, very basic while still being what it is. It's definitely not comfortable especially the shoulder straps but that's the sacrifice for low profile, and a thin shirt underneath solves that problem. It isn't something you will hide under a t-shirt obviously but you could get away with it under a sweatshirt or coat fairly easily. As a small and thin person i will say that the shoulder straps need to be pulled in so far that there isn't much velcro left to stick to each other as much as there could be and the extra length of straps then stick out so that's something to consider.

It takes up about as much space as a small folded blanket with (curved front and back) plates in it so its almost no space at all.

All in all a really handy thing to have around for yourself or to throw on a loved one if you felt the need. You could easily wear it and go about your business without loss of mobility or in a larger military-style carrier. (Posted on 11/18/2017)
