AR500 Armor® Sentry Plate Carrier Package with Level III Body Armor and Pouches (Black) - (Carrier made of NON-Ballistic materials)

Ideal for Home Defense, Emergency Situations, Training/Carbine Courses, and Active Shooter/Rifle Threat situations. The AR500 Armor® Sentry Plate Carrier package is an all-inclusive rifle threat protection Body Armor solution. As it ships, the Sentry plate carrier package includes our Level III rifle rated Body Armor, MOLLE Chest Mounted Pistol Holster (Universal), Double M4/AR15 magazine pouch, and a Double Pistol mag pouch.

600D nylon construction nets a lightweight & slim, yet rugged backbone to your body armor system. Mesh internal lining improves airflow and adds comfort with minimal bulk. The Sentry Plate Carrier Package bypasses frills and includes all of the necessary basics such as adjustable padded shoulders, drag handle, hydration tube/radio guides, and quick release side buckles. All with minimal excess material resulting in less wasted space, bulk, and ultimately reducing unnecessary weight, heat signature, and improving comfort.

The Sentry Plate Carrier features ergonomic wide adjustable side straps with quick release buckles. The cummerbund-less design reduces bulk on the side of your carrier and helps improve airflow, at the cost of being incompatible with side plate body armor. Easier to don and doff, the quick release buckles are maneuvered with easy allowing you to gear up quickly in an emergency.

Well Made Prompt Order Fullfillment Review by Dave Verified Purchase
I placed my order on July 4th. and received it on July 14th. even though AR500 indicated a three week lead time. Everything that comes with the package arrived well packed and undamaged. The material for the plate carrier feels tough. Velcro aplenty (no worries about there not being enough to hold an item in place). The included Malice clips are the correct size for attaching the pouches and holster which is very sturdy and seems like it can be adjusted to fit a variety of pistol sizes. I'm a small framed adult (5' 8" 150 lbs) and the carrier fits me with the straps adjusted most of the way in. If one were to insert curved plates it would fit someone even smaller. There seems to be plenty of adjustment for much larger adults. With the plates inserted and no other items attached such as magazines, the system weighed in at right around twenty pounds. Stitching on all items is well done with no areas where the stitching was misaligned. Drag handles are sewn in well. The mag pouches fit my 223/556 mags snugly with enough Velcro and cover flaps over the top to keep them in place. The addition of small rubberized grab areas on the ends of the flaps is a plus too. So far this system looks like it will suit my needs as a SHTF item. (Posted on 7/15/2018)
Great Plate Carrier Review by 1God2Fear
I have to say it is a great plate carrier for the money. Comes with everything you need, nothing you don't. Easy to adjust, & with the right body armor it will work efficiently with whatever role you might need it for (Firearms Training, LE, Armed Security, Home Defense).

P.S. Don't forget your camelback, hydrate or die, is what they say. (Posted on 5/30/2018)
You're all crazy Review by Mark
After reading a few reviews where people state its easy to adjust I would have to disagree to the fullest extent.

This rig even when adjusted all the way is still so loose if i jump the front plate is gonna pop me in the face.

Unhappy. (Posted on 4/12/2018)
Review from M. Golden Review by M. Golden
Ordered mine through the July 4th promotion, but would have easily been happy had I paid more for this set. There apparently was an error with the order, as I had received two flat plates, but was supposed to have had one flate and one curved. AR500 rectified this without me even noticing, so now I have an extra plate on top of the sale discount. Anyway, I'm a smaller guy, but the carrier was easily adjusted down to my frame and fits well. The holster fits most of my pistols, including a Sig MK25, so I'm happy there. The rifle mag pouch holds 4 Magpul 5.56mm 30-rounders and no issue with the pistol mag pouch either for my assorted double-stacks. Quality product and quality experience overall. (Posted on 8/8/2016)

Review from Jeremy Malott Review by Jeremy Malott
Looks and fits great. Quality gear. Hopefully I'll never have to put it to use, but if I do I am confident this armor will do its job. (Posted on 8/4/2016)
Review from Michael Review by Michael
Fits amazingly, hopefully never need it but fits easily in my duty bag. (Posted on 8/4/2016)
Review from Brandon Dungey Review by Brandon Dungey
Fit very well, and is comfortable during extended wear on thirteen hour shifts (Posted on 8/4/2016)
Review from Richard Alejandro Review by Richard Alejandro
Excellent price. Very fast shipping. Product went beyond all my expectations. I purchased this for two reasons. The first being the obvious need for protection during this uncertain time. The other is to use as my weighted vest during workouts. This plate carrier and level III plates cost less than the crossfit 511 vest, which does not serve a protective purpose. (Posted on 8/4/2016)
Review from Ryan McMorrow Review by Ryan McMorrow
Outstanding product (Posted on 7/25/2016)
Review from Wesley B Review by Wesley B
I'm really happy with the quality of the carrier, plates, and the condor acceccories. I was lucky and did not have to wait the full estimated time which made it even better. Lighter weight than expected and I was able to adjust it perfect for my size. 5 stars all the way and I will be a return customer. (Posted on 7/22/2016)

Great plates and carrier well worth the money. (Posted on 7/20/2016)
Review from Andrew Gould Review by Andrew Gould
The product itself is better than what I thought I was ordering. It is perfect for on the job quick deployment and I will feel extremely safe wearing it. The only downside was the wait to receive it. Very long wait time with little to know communication in how long my order would take. At first it was stated that there was an 8 week lead time, my order took a few more weeks longer. I do recommend the product I just wish they communicated more about getting my product to my doorstept (Posted on 3/2/2016)
Review from Andrew H. Review by Andrew H.
Very impressed with the quality and value of this plate carrier. If I had a chance to do it all over again I would most likely pay extra for a curved front plate and consider getting a vest with more coverage to better distribute weight. (Posted on 11/24/2015)
Review from B Beal Review by B Beal
Exactly as described. No complaints from me. The only negative I had was the wait, but they forewarned about that in the ad. (Posted on 11/2/2015)
Review from Tom Haugan Review by Tom Haugan
By far the best value in a complete body armor system. Condor vest is very well made, and AR500 plates are excellent. The perfect combination at a great price! (Posted on 9/29/2015)
Review from Michael velarde Review by Michael velarde
Best body armor for the price. If you can find better plates and carriers then I'd like to know cause I have search EVERYWHERE! AR500 armor is top quality and so are the carriers they provide. No cut corner and no BS. (Posted on 9/24/2015)
Review from Mike S. Review by Mike S.
Love the Sentry Carrier. I didn't even have to wait 10 weeks. Condor stuff is top notch quality. Love the plates....Not as heavy as I thought it would be but isn't lightweight either.
Although I won't use the pistol holder due to a thigh rig I have, the pistol and rifle pouches are perfect.
When my Sheriff friend tells me to get body armor in the event "IT" hits the fan, I'm in. Great product that doesn't break the bank. (Posted on 9/5/2015)

Great product. Recieved it in just over 7 weeks. (Posted on 8/30/2015)
Review from Rob Review by Rob
Great product, well worth the wait. My biggest complaint as with most things is that the holster is only offered for the right handed shooter. It would of been nice to see an option for right or left handed holster. Instead I have buy the one I need. ***Please note left handed holsters can be swapped out by request*** - AR500 Armor® Team Note (Posted on 8/14/2015)

Review from John Review by John
Long wait but they were very up front about it. Carrier is not fancy but gets the job done, pouches work well, I just wish I had spent the extra for curved plates. The flat plates aren't bad but are not as comfortable as I had hoped. Luckily I don't have to wear it all the time but I may be ordering the curved plates soon. Good quality though, communication on shipping was prompt, well packaged, weight is not as bad as I was expecting, 26 lbs with 4 30rd AR mags in the pouches. I would recommend wider should straps as they do start to cut in a little after a while. I will definitely be buying more from AR500! (Posted on 8/11/2015)

Review from jason pion Review by jason pion
Honestly after reading all the bad reviews I was hoping I wouldent be one. And i am not I really like this armour plan on upgrading the plates to the light weight ones when u have the extra money. Even rode with it on my motorcycle. Has stood up to every test I can do with it short of shooting it which hopefully I will never happen. Very pleased and worth the wait. I would recommend this to anyone. (Posted on 7/9/2015)

Review from Lonnie Schuroff Review by Lonnie Schuroff
I purchased the Sentry Plate Carrier Package .The quality was Great . It did take a while before I relieved it, however if you watch the video about the most asked questions it will answer why. I have and will be doing more business with AR500 armor in the future. My thanks to all of the people who make a great product possible !!

Review from CraftE Review by CraftE
Great plates, decent carrier, I have a thicker neck and work out a lot, the only thing that I would change would be wider shoulder straps. (Posted on 6/1/2015)
Review from Luis Hernandez Review by Luis Hernandez
With ten years in law enforcement his plate carrier is very good the holster for the gun takes some getting used too fits a larger or G21 great, but overall the material of the carrier is heavy duty the mag pouches work great with the Velcro. The plates fit well the side plate take a little more effort to set. My only issue is the overall weight of the plates is heavy so be prepare its not a hike 3 miles plate carrier its a drive fast jump out of the patrol car run up to the house carrier. I will be buying the soft armor next to switch out. Again a overall very good plate carrier. (Posted on 5/30/2015)
Review from Roger Review by Roger
Very nice rig and doesn't break the bank for the ordinary guy that seeks added protection should it ever be needed in these uncertain times. My suggestion to readers is to get something now while you still can. The current "government" is going to ban everything they can that's related to guns/ammo or anything else. From a "III" %. (Posted on 5/28/2015)
Review from Craig Review by Craig
Ar500 Armor offer a very nice product for the money very satisfied. The customer service and response to emails and questions was great. My only 2 issues were the 12 week wait time and the 10x12 plates and standard carrier was a little to small for a guy my size. I'm 6' 3" and 255 lbs word to the wise get the XL plates 11x14 and a XL plate carrier. I had to donate the 10x12 plate and carrier to my wifeshe's 5' 7" and 143 the s/m fits her perfect. So to all the bigger guys out there get the 11x14 set up and you will be happy. (Posted on 5/22/2015)
Review from Michael Pack Review by Michael Pack
Can't beat this carrier and plates for the money. Condor makes a very good product and AR500 makes awesome plates. I have 3 sets and just ordered side armor for one carrier. Had to wait about 10 weeks but hell it is worth the wait. Get some! (Posted on 5/19/2015)
Review from Michael Pack Review by Michael Pack
Products are very good quality. All Molle attachments fit perfectly and plenty of room for placement. Fit and adjustments are great, and comfortable to wear even with Level III plates. I would recommend to friends and family for sure. Customer Service and Shipping Dept. could use some attention, they are very slow to respond and when they send you a tracking email the items will sit in shipping for at least a week before UPS picks it up. I realize they are very busy, but once it is ready to ship UPS will pick it up the same day or next? The plates were worth the wait of 10 weeks but the in stock items should be set aside when the order is placed so they can be shipped when the plates are ready. You guys are awesome to make such a needed product, but just address your CS to respond to us, we are just concerned about our orders.

Review from Charles Topping Review by Charles Topping
This is the part that ties it all together. The wait time was worth it. I'm sure that somewhere someone could have made a carrier cheaper, but it probably would have been cheaply made also. Better to have waited for the real deal than to end up having to use your hands to keep a plate in place. (Posted on 5/12/2015)

Review from K Rickard Review by K Rickard
Tis armor is exceptional. At least as far as fit and quality. As it has not been used for its intended purpose and hopefully wont have to be I cannot say how well it works however if from what I've seen on YouTube is any indication I am positive it will do what it was designed for.

Review from ASG Review by ASG
Love it!! Hated the 10 week back order but it was well worth the wait. Will be buying more as soon as possible. Great product at a great price!! Do wish the carrier was full body instead of just upper chest area but again it's a great buy. (Posted on 5/5/2015)

Review from Lamont Farr Review by Lamont Farr
Thanks for the quick response but I've thought about it and I think I will just leave my carrier color as it stands. I will just go with the black. Do you guys have any idea when my order will be shipped? I know it hasn't been 10 weeks yet but I just had to ask. (Posted on 4/13/2015)

Better than expected! I was pleasantly surprised on how well it fit and felt. It is of course, necessary, heavy but is well balanced. I am planning on buying "soft" body armor. I also like the response to a question I sent to the company. It was timely and informative. Thanks to all in the company.

Review from Ray Potrykus Review by Ray Potrykus
Worth the money and the waiting time 9 1/2 weeks . Took a little work to adjust but it's all good now. I just wish there was an option to exchange the AR-15 mag pouches for the larger M-14 7.62x51 (.308) but I must say when I called customer service they were able to facilitate a correction .
Thank You AR500 (Posted on 2/23/2015)

Review from Mario Chavez Review by Mario Chavez
Heavy duty unit and looks and feels extremely durable. Not too crazy about the holster made in China and difficult to use. Magazine holders are nice since they are adjustable for different size clips. If you live in California get one quick because these jerks that try to control us are threating to take our rights away for owning or possessing this fine piece of protection. Bad part about my experience was it took 4 months to get because EVERONE wants one. (Posted on 2/1/2015)

Bought this for my range and home kit fits awesome drag handles sewn in very well, the plates are heavy but well balanced, and the mag holders are the bomb. Using Magpul 30s they fit secure and don't bounce or rattle but also quickly pull out. Going to be getting a plate for my medic bag. Only one issue no ready mount for a CAT tourniquet.
