AR500 Armor® Testudo™ Plate Carrier - Gen 2

AR500 Armor® Testudo™ Plate Carrier - Gen 2

Product Review (submitted on May 24, 2019):
I haven't used my Testudo carrier too extensively but it fits the bill for what I was looking for. I wanted some affordable that I could train with, shoot with, and have ready at home. I think it is hard to find a better carrier for the money, especially when AR500 has deals on carrier/plates combos. I ended up getting the AR500 Veritas Cummerbund Kit to use with this carrier so I get more air flow to my body. I do have the original Testudo cummerbund with side plates if I need it but I have been running it with the Veritas Cummerbund since I have had this carrier. I am using the AR500 Armor Level III+ ASC Body Armor 10" x 12" curved plates with the build up coating and the trauma pad inserts. I am 6'0 and 185 lbs and I think this carrier fits me very well. I did try on the Veritas carrier and I found that to be too small for my liking.
