AR500 Armor® Testudo™ Plate Carrier - Gen 2

AR500 Armor® Testudo™ Plate Carrier - Gen 2

Product Review (submitted on December 29, 2017):
Took weeks to get the Carrier (to be fair it's Christmas and they're having a sale). I think better customer service is where AR 500 needs to focus, lot of complaints of weekly and monthly wait times. That said IMO it's the best body armor on the market. The Testudo Gen 2 has thick padding back and front with anti sweat webbing. Plates are secured by a combination of straps and Velco seals to be sure it's not moving. The entire outside of the carrier and cummberbund are covered in Molle spec attachments with lower and upper Velcro pockets. The bottom pouch is fairly large and will accept a "Kangaroo pouch" ($7) that holds 3 additional magazines. You can wear it with or without the cummerbund, and quick release buckles will release the rig at both shoulders and either side. Exellent value overall IMO.
