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.
