Warrior DCS (Dynamic Combat System) Plate Carrier - (Carrier made of NON-Ballistic materials)
The Warrior DCS Plate Carrier combines many of the great features you would expect in a top tier plate carrier while taking a minimalist approach; all without sacrificing webbing real-estate or armor coverage. Compatible with 10” x 12” body armor (does not accept level III square back armor) and featuring a fully adjustable design, the warrior provides best in class value without sacrificing quality. 
A single quick release front mounted shoulder buckle is located on the left shoulder, and strategically placed to not interfere with the butt stock of your weapon, a common problem among other plate carriers. “Pre-tensioned” PALS/MOLLE webbing line the front and rear of the plate carrier, the pre-tension feature allows easier webbing of pouches! The cummerbund flap is fully webbed to obtain optimal pouch position. Vertical webbing allows attachment of QUASM buckles for easy chest rig adaptation, and guide tabs ride along each side of the carrier for easy wire or hydration tube routing.
The shoulder straps are full adjustable for proper plate ride height, and included are top notch padded shoulder pads for improved comfort. The reinforced semi-rigid cummerbund prevents sagging with side armor installed, and is fully adjustable to accommodate different girths. It’s also compatible with side armor (both soft and hard). Fits up to 6” x 8” side plates, both soft and hard, in addition to 5” x 7” soft IIIA inserts which can be worn in conjunction with hard 6” x 8” armor plates. Easy pull handles located on the front end of each cummerbund side allow for easy donning and doffing. A removable Velcro padded, utility pouch with bungee top which can be used to store your radio or additional magazines is also included and attaches to the inner side of the cummerbund. The inner side of the plate carrier is lined with padded moisture wicking improved 3D mesh for improved air flow. The heavy duty drag handle is located on the back side of the plate carrier and secures to the carrier via Velcro to prevent snagging.
The Warrior DCS nails the balance of fit and form, function, and value – being one of the most feature packed and quality produced plate carriers in its price range.

Customer Reviews

Great price great quality. Anything but “ Basic” Review by TacticalBeard Verified Purchase
I’ve always amused the idea of having a set of armor but the price just always seemed like a trade off for someone with a limited budget . Get nice plates only have the cash for a cheap carrier or buy a nice carrier and get sub par protection. The “ Basic “ set is pretty misleading because it comes with a pistol holster,pistol mag pouches and rifle mag pouches aswell as all the malice clips to attach them. Since 30/6, .308 , m193-m855 5.56 are the most common rifle threats LVL3+ is the way to go. The carrier fits nice with plenty of extra adjustment for anyone that would need it. It’s winter so I can’t say If the carrier is hot but it has lots of padded mesh all over the front,back,shoulders and the full 25lb ish kit sits nice in the rig you hardly notice it all around I highly recommend it. It’s a little hard to find a video review of the carrier from ppl that actually run real plates in them. Some odd reason most carrier reviews are done by 14 year olds who keep them empty for airsoft but you can find some actual reviews if you look enough. Even comes with 2 patches a nice plus the grey one is nice but the vibrant colors on the red white and blue patch stands out so that ones just on my range bag that’s really my only gripe replace that one colored patch with a straight up American flag ;) everything needs a true American flag on it. Picked it up on a 40% flash sale during shot show and it still arrived in just over a week after order (Posted on 2/6/2018)
