AR Freeman™ Modular Plate Carrier
The AR Freeman™ is a great carrier for the citizen who wants easy don and doff of a minimal footprint carrier with all the protection of NIJ compliant Level III plates. Compact in size it will travel well or take up little space next to your bed. For citizens who already have a full-sized carrier this is the prefect addition of armor for home protection or for smaller family members. The small footprint also makes it an excellent choice for competitive shooters as well who may have to wear body armor during competitions but don’t want to be weighted down and restricted in their movements by the extra pouches and gear on their operational carrier.
The key here is the specially cut 9” x 9” octagonal NIJ 0101.06 standard Level III plates, at 5 lbs. each +/- 10%, which provide vitals coverage with no restrictions to your movements or the positioning and firing of your weapon. The AR Freeman™ carrier is made of a laser cut laminate Cordura front, and 500D back with enough MOLLE for up to three (3) magazine pouches. There is Velcro on the front and back for ID patches, and on the inside for pontoons (comfort sets). The Hypalon shoulders make it perfect for shouldering a rifle unobstructed and in comfort. The single buckle sides make for quick donning and doffing. Available in sizes from medium to XL in Black or Coyote. This is a great carrier for home, office, vehicle or your bug out location should things go south.

- Mildly dissapointing... Review by SKNR
Some scenarios that I think this armor package WOULD be good for:
1) Protecting all your family by armoring up your kids.
2) In a scenario wear you only expect to face pistol wielding opponents, and you already have on soft level II or IIIA armor and want a little extra protection from rifle threats just in case.
3) Stash it in your get home bag in your vehicle for some protection while getting to your full setup at home. Etc.
It's not a terrible product, it's just a lot smaller than I had pictured in my mind.
