AR500 Armor® Quick Release Plate Carrier Package with Level III Body Armor and Pouches

With similar features to the Operator II Plate Carrier, our Quick Release Plate Carrier features a different cummerbund and an integrated quick release system allowing rapid removal of your body armor & carrier from either shoulder. When the quick release tab is pulled, both shoulders and backsides of the cummerbund detach. In this state simply pushing down on the cummerbund of the Quick Release Plate Carrier will allow the carrier to drop free and completely detach the front from the back panel. 

The package includes removable external mounted Side Plate pouches which attached via MOLLE to the cummerbund. These side plate pouches are color matched and will accept our 6" x 6" and 6" x 8" side body armor, including Hard, Soft, and Trauma Pads. The cummerbund is fully adjustable for girth while still retaining the quick release function. Also included, our Level III rifle rated Body Armor, MOLLE Chest Mounted Pistol Holster (Universal), Double M4/AR15 magazine pouch, and a Double Pistol mag pouch.

Built in plate retention straps in the front & back armor pockets allow you to adjust the reight height of your body armor, accepting AR500 Armor® 10" x 12" plates. The padded shoulder straps are fully adjustable for ride height, and the cummerbund is fully adjustable for girth. Standard rear mounted drag handle is included, and Velcro loops on the front, shoulders, and rear allow you to guide your hydration tube & or radio accessories.

The AR500 Armor® Quick Release Plate Carrier ships loaded with (2) AR500 Armor® Level III patent pending Advanced Shooters Cut 10” x 12” body armor plates, MOLLE Side Plate Pouches (accepts 6" x 6" & 6" x 8" side plates, MOLLE Chest Mounted Pistol Holster (Right Hand Only, Universal wrap design fits Full Size to Sub Compacts), MOLLE Double M4/AR15 magazine pouch (4 mag capacity), and MOLLE Double universal pistol magazine pouch (2 mag capacity).

Review from Donald Brannon Review by Donald Brannon
The fit is tight for the plates and pads but the vest fits well. (Posted on 10/10/2014)
Review from Daniel Review by Daniel
Love the armor. Great deal for the price. However, if you are LEO and use this to throw in your trunk, front seat, or other area in your patrol car in case of an active shooter situation, please be aware that the side plates hang too low and will ride on/over your gun belt. I cannot use the side plates because of this. It pushes against my taser, ammo mags and firearm! (Posted on 7/21/2014)
