    When armor coverage is your primary concern, the all-inclusive Testudo Gen 2.0 armor plate carrier has you covered.

    Named after the Roman army’s defensive formation, the Testudo comes ready to provide you the maximum coverage of all our plate carriers, right out of the box.

    The Testudo will accommodate 10”x12” or 11”x14” body armor of any type. Its fully-adjustable cummerbund and shoulder straps make the Testudo versatile enough for large or medium body types. Plenty of PALS webbing for attaching your MOLLE-compatible pouches, holsters, and accessories. The generous supply of Velcro -- covering all the PALS webbing -- offers superior versatility for placement of medical, moto, or other patches or gear.

    All inclusive

    The Testudo is our flagship and has everything you need, right out of the box. The removable cummerbund sports integrated side-armor pockets, and the low-offset shoulder straps mean the rear plate pocket rides at the proper height. If you run plates smaller than 10”x12”, add our Adaptive Plate Insert and you’ve got everything you need to run a lightweight run-and-gun setup, all the way to fully-kitted for maximum protection and load-bearing capability. Just add armor and pouches (sold separately)

    AR Battle Belt

    Carrying first-line gear comfortably and securely has always been the goal of belt system users, and the Armored Republic® AR Battle Belt™ meets and exceeds that goal.

    Three-piece modular system

    Available in four sizes and colors, the AR Battle Belt consists of three parts working together as a system for carrying your first-line load out, from handgun or rifle magazine pouches and first aid kits, to dump pouches and other MOLLE-compatible accessories.

    The first part is the Inner Belt, which is worn through your belt loops, and is covered with hook and loop material, allowing it to attach to the Duty Belt. 

    The Duty Belt is made of durable 2” SCUBA webbing, and securely holds your handgun, reloads, or other standard duty loadout. 

    The third part of the AR Battle Belt consists of the removable PALS-covered Outer Belt, which slides onto the Duty Belt like a sleeve.

    These components allow for multiple configurations, making it adaptable to your needs. Together, they create a scalable yet affordable gun belt system.

      • Small: 27–31 in (69-79 cm)
