AR500 Armor® Veritas™ Modular Plate Carrier

“We are proud to announce the Veritas Plate Carrier as the first serious success by any manufacturer at creating a true professional grade carrier utilizing paramount components and manufacturing processes, available at this price point. Our commitment to craftsmanship is reflected in every piece. Fit, form, function, modularity, and price reflect perfection.”

The AR500 Armor® Veritas™ is our modular plate carrier embodiment fueled by years of feedback and evaluation as a body armor manufacturer. Fusing every desirable feature into a finely crafted, cost effective modular system with no compromise. The result astounded even us. The Veritas™ is one of our signature plate carriers, and with that represents what the AR500 Armor® R&D team, and brand stand for. The Veritas by AR500 Armor® is designed to compete, scale, and leave you wanting for nothing.

Accepting 10” x 12” body armor, Veritas™ Plate Carrier features a minimalistic profile without sacrificing real-estate and is smaller, but more modular, than its larger kin the Testudo™. Intense care was given to material choice in effort to forge a comfortable, ventilated, and lightweight plate carrier. Durable 3D mesh lines both the inner plate pockets with inlayed soft loop Velcro pontoon attachment points. removable mesh padded shoulder pads are included, each featuring tri-loop guides and attachment points. The low-profile emergency drag handle traverses through the entire back half of the plate carrier for increased strength. Broad 2” side buckles secure the adjustable straps, and are user removable for increased comfort when running the Veritas™ cummerbund.

Each row of webbing and all high stress points are Bar-Tack stitch reinforced for durability. All webbing features soft loop for versatility. Dual upper and lower admin pockets provide ample built in storage and scalability for the Veritas™ cummerbund system, and kangaroo pouch. Upper admin pocket features inner elastic divided keepers for gear retention. Easy-to-grip Hypalon pull tabs embrace each pocket for accessibility in all conditions. Generous upper front & rear soft loop Velcro panels easily accommodate patches and large ID panels.

The entire construction is genuine 500D Cordura nylon for the perfect balance of durability and weight reduction. Impact resistant made in the USA buckles reduce failure points in these critical areas where many carriers fail. Front chest rig mounts are compatible with all common chest rig adapters, along with rear vertical load bearing attachment points. Both allowing for upper or lower mounting positions.


The Veritas™ Plate Carrier is a modular system and offers an array of excellent accessories, and more to follow!

Cummerbund System: Our modern cummerbund system uses the latest technology to maintain a reduced profile, durability, and weight savings. Laser cut laminate, Hypalon, and low profile soft loop combined with a cleverly designed cummerbund/admin flap, are the tools used to seamlessly integrate into the Veritas™ plate carrier. All while improving on and retaining original functionality. Vertias Cummerbund

Multi-Caliber Kangaroo Mag Pouch: Ultra-light and low profile, our kangaroo pouch features a self-retention inner elastic and non-slip liner to secure your M4 5.56 or AK47 7.62x39 magazines, up to 3 rifle magazine capacity. Compatible with Veritas™ cummerbund system. Kangaroo Mag Pouch

Padded Multi Side Plate Pouches: Compatible when the Veritas™ cummerbund system is installed. Our padded side plate pouches can be mounted in any location on the inner or outer side of the cummerbund. Mounts on the inside via hook & loop attachment, and outside with included webbed adapter panel. Mesh padding design improves air flow and comfort, while wrap around retention accommodates all side plate body armor sizes.Side Plate Pouch

Trauma Plate Insert: Our Trauma Plate Insert dramatically increases versatility by allowing you to easily create an in-conjunction armor system, reduce armor size, or add soft or hard trauma plates for heart and vital organ coverage. The Trauma Plate Insert is compatible with both front & rear pockets, and accommodates 6” x 6”, 6” x 8”, and 8” x 10” armor sizes. Simply attach the insert to the attachment panel on the inner pocket of your Veritas™ or Testudo™ (Gen 2) plate carrier for your custom configured armor setup. Plate Pocket Insert

    Customer Reviews

    Excellent carrier, but beware of rear plate size before ordering. Review by Mr. Nobody
    Just received - excellent quality; however, this carrier (or at least the one I received) WILL NOT accept standard 10x12 back plates...sticks out 2 & 1/2"s from bottom of carrier and therefore, cannot be secured. An ASC 10x12 front plate would be a perfect fit in this fella but none of this is described in the carriers' details. Again, EXCELLENT product, but this very important detail about rear plate size / orientation needs to be included in its description. Its a little smaller than what I expected so I'm returning and have already ordered the Testudo 2 carrier.

    For a smaller frame (I'm 5'-7", 195...weights, not burgers), it'll be a perfect fit. But remember, order (2) ASC front plates or something smaller than a 10x12 rear and you'll be good to go. Ridiculously quick order fulfillment and shipping! Wonderful company to do business with and I'll continue to do so in the future. Thank you! (Posted on 8/28/2018)
    Outstanding modular plate carrier with one small caveat Review by James
    This is a great modular plate carrier that's inexpensive but durable. Fits ASC cut plates just fine however the small caveat I discovered is that it won't securely fit a standard 10x12 square back plate. There isn't enough Velcro at the bottom to securely strap the plate in. It will fit to a degree and hold while standing/walking but may come out during high intensity activity. That being said, it's advisable to run two ASC cut plates front and back to ensure maximum compatibility. (Posted on 7/2/2018)
    Exactly as described Review by Maxx
    When I bought this I received a lead time of 6 weeks and I got it 8 days..very satisfied with the fast shipping. The description on the website as well as the YouTube videos are exactly right. The carrier is made of very high quality materials and fits almost perfect our of the box. Will definitely have my range buddies pick up a couple.

    My only, "complaint" would he that ot does not come with that sweet ass morale patch shown in the picture...not a big deal at all as I am most likely going to put one of my choosing on anyway but still, I was kind of looking forward to that.

    Still, I couldn't really ask for better for under $80. (Posted on 6/26/2018)
