AR Concealment Carrier by AR500 Armor®

Concealment Body Armor like nothing else. The revision of our concealment carrier is based around a single goal, maximum concealment. Down to material selection and form of each component the AR Concealment Carrier is designed to minimize printing.

Approximate Weight:

AR Concealment Carrier (Empty): only 8.1oz

AR Concealment Carrier (Loaded with Front & Rear 10” x 12” IIIA Hybrid Soft Armor): only 2.6lb’s

We did away with traditional Cordura Nylon and went with a moisture wicking, breathable, 4-way stretch abrasion resistant fabric for each plate pocket. This switch thins the profile, improves comfort against the skin, and helps the carrier mold to the lines of your body improving concealment. The plate pockets are a keep it simple design, with a slight overlap passthrough on the lower 1/3 section of each plate pocket on the body facing side. This design allows you to easily insert your armor and does not require the use of plate pocket flaps and retention straps to secure the armor; reducing overall thickness of the plate carrier by not requiring layers of material to layer up over one another. This approach reduces the front side cummerbund print you see on traditional concealment type carriers

The shoulder straps are constructed from ultra-thin but strong Hypalon and are lined with low profile Velcro only where needed, while still allowing full adjustability. The combination of low-profile Velcro and Hypalon allowed us to create a shoulder strap design that minimized material overlap, again reducing thickness of the AR Concealment Carrier for improved concealment.

The cummerbund also uses low profile Velcro, and a reduced weight elastic material the cummerbunds adjustable retention. The cummerbund is adjustable on both the front and rear of the AR Concealment Carrier giving you the most options for concealment and reduced printing.

Form fitted for 10” x 12” soft body armor. We do not recommend the AR Concealment Carrier for use with hard armor, although it can be done, it is designed for maximum concealment of IIIA soft body armor.

Customer Reviews

Nice...BUT Review by Firefighter Luigi Verified Purchase
Nice concealment carrier primarily intended for soft armor. An AR500 10x12 swimmers cut level III with a buildup coating will in no way fit; however, a 10x12 standard cut curved plate from another manufacturer will squeeze in. (Posted on 5/1/2020)
Outstanding performance Review by patenagents Verified Purchase
The new Ar500, AR Concealment Plate Carrier, is outstanding in both concealability and comfort. Personally I enjoy its low profile and slim design because it conforms to my body perfectly which makes it easy to wear because it doesn't feel very bulky and constricting, it is super easy to adjust to fit my body with just a few straps on the side and shoulders, with outstanding concealability, and so light that I don't feel like I am wearing it. I love this carrier and I wear it everyday! (Posted on 2/27/2020)
Overall a good product. Review by Ed
I received the plate carrier in less than the stated lead time. It was exactly as pictured. I installed two curved armor plates. They were a bit of a tight fit, however with care they went into the carrier with no problem.
Overall good quality, good fit, and does exactly what they say it does at a reasonable price.

After some adjustment and wear, the carrier is very comfortable. very light weight, and minimizes printing on most normal daywear. I suggest slightly larger than your regular size shirts, especially for Izod or Golf shirts. I've worn this for a few hours at a time with no comfort issues at all - it needs to be properly adjusted for all this to work of course. Having a partner check the initial setup from the back is handy.

The only downside is that the system is a bit noisy. The plates shift in the carrier, creating a creaking noise that is clearly audible. In a public security environment (VIP at an event or similar) or with an sports coat this is not an issue. In a quiet setting, like an office or meeting, with just a dress shirt between the system and the outside some of your movements are going to generate noise. This may go away with time, I don't know yet. (Posted on 11/22/2019)
