AR Invictus Plate Carrier

The Invictus carrier is designed to be the lowest profile and lightest carrier possible. The ultralight construction results in a jumpable plate carrier that weighs in at 1.5 lbs and provides extreme mobility without sacrificing comfort or the ability to be fully loaded out. Materials such as the laser-cut laminate and thin yet durable Hypalon combine to give the user all of the benefits of an extremely rugged plate carrier, but without any of the weight or inconvenience of traditional carrier construction.

While the carrier maintains an extremely low profile, it doesn’t skimp on any of the features one might want such as full 10x12 armor coverage, a reinforced drag handle, side plate and pontoon capability, and full MOLLE coverage.

While in development this carrier went by many names. It's been referred to as the "Mako," as well as the "Godspeed," but ultimately we settled on "Invictus". The name means "undefeated" or "unconquerable", and is also the name of Plane #42-97525 of the 452nd Bomb Group; a B-17 Flying Fortress that flew missions in World War II over Germany. Whether you are jumping out of planes or just looking for a lightweight carrier, the Invictus is a great choice.

Jump tested by US Special Operations, this carrier is mission ready for any op.

Customer Reviews

Excellent quality Review by Christian Verified Purchase
This is by far the best plate carrier I've ever run! It has extreme durability, with great sturdy materials. The size adjustment and ability to fit to your specific body is such a great feature!
The laser cut molee holds all pouches and gear tight and securely to the carrier. The plate carrier itself is extremely comfortable. Almost more so without shoulder pads. And the carrier does a great job moving with your body during intense physical movement! With AR500's 10×12 Lvl III plates it makes a serious competition to other top brand plate carrier options.

Just Buy it already Review by Michael Verified Purchase
I loved my Invictus plate carrier. I bought mine in multicam and wore it everyday for 2 weeks straight for my annual training this year. It was hot but it felt like I wasn’t even wearing armor. My unit thought it was a JPC so they allowed it. Everything about the plate carrier was outstanding. It held up great, it was light weight, and everything on it seams to be of good quality. I would buy again in a heartbeat! (Posted on 8/17/2019)
Suburb construction and durability Review by Monte
Excellent design lends to the light weight versatility of the carrier and it's ability to accommodate plates and trauma pads and still be as comfortable as it is, is a testament of the practicality and design research that was implemented into this carrier. I can and have recommended this to my network. (Posted on 7/22/2019)
Best all around Review by Daniel
This plate carrier is really thin and lightweight, yet can fit the level III+ with buildup and trauma pads inside easily. It is very adjustable with the really rugged Velcro they use. I have the shoulders adjusted to where there's 2 square grids hanging off (which means less Velcro surface to attach) and with the armor, side plates, and 3 magazines the Velcro held up fine. I know there was people concerned about it but no trouble with it. Overall for the price you're getting a lot, the laser cut molle with reinforced stitching is awesome fits my g code soft shell and itw fast mag a-ok. Just waiting for the pontoon passing out to come out for extra comfort. 10/10. (Posted on 3/29/2019)
Excellent product Review by Active Duty Pararescue
I ran with this kit during a pre-deployment work up with my Pararescue team. I put it through the ringer with over 72 hours of continuous full mission profiles, several in inclement weather. This carrier exceeded my expectations. It is comfortable, minimal, breathable, and durable, all which are a must in this arena. This kit is worth every penny, you won’t be disappointed. Well done guys (Posted on 3/22/2019)
