The AR500 Armor Guardian Standard Molle Plate Carrier is a rapid deploy-able quick-detach plate carrier, featuring Quick-Detach, fully adjustable shoulders and side straps via ITW GT Cobra buckles. This design provides enough webbing for essentials as well as reducing weight and bulk. The Guardian Plate Carrier can be donned and doffed in seconds with little training, and can be worn over existing soft armor and other gear. Easy integration (in both standard and slick variants) with modern chest rigs (such as the HSP D3), and modular pouches through built in vertical webbing.
Color matched inner mesh lining improves air flow and comfort while wearing the Guardian Plate carrier. All webbing features a soft loop front ID Panel for Patch, Chest Rig, and Velcro pouch compatibility on both sides of the carrier. The heavy duty drag handle is low profile and snag free, with durable bartack stitching. Removable shoulder pads are included and constructed with the same padded mesh inner lining for improved comfort. Each shoulder pad features dual loop guides for attachments such as hydration tube, radio, tourniquet(s), or D-Rings.
The Slick Side variant lacks the QD Cobra buckles on the shoulders & sides and replaces the top shoulder buckles with ITW Nexus loop locs; where there were side buckles now are ITW Nexus standard 2" buckles with 4" Velcro ID Panel lining the back. Front side webbing includes 4 bottom rows with soft loop Velcro, compatible with all standard mag pouches and chest rigs, accompanied by a 4" Velcro ID panel up top.
