AR500 Plate carrier
If you want a plate carrier with a minimalist profile that doesn’t sacrifice real estate, the AR500 Armor Lite™ is what you’re looking for.
This is a slimmed down version of our standard plate carrier. The comfortable, well-ventilated, and lightweight plate carrier for 10”x12” hard armor plates*. Plenty of PALS webbing for attaching your MOLLE-compatible pouches, holsters, and accessories.
features the same American-made, impact-resistant buckles as the original, but eliminates the bulk and weight of the padding, 3D mesh, and removes the MOLLE webbing on the upper front and rear portions (both replaced with a large area of Velcro®). It is ideal for wearing over a soft armor vest.
Can easily add options with MOLLE straps
- Durable: Constructed of genuine 500D Cordura® nylon and bar-tacked at all stress points
- Comfortable: padded and removable shoulder pads, front and rear Velcro® Pontoon Pad attachments points (sold separately)
- Customizable: optional cummerbund & side-plate pockets allow for full modularity. Fits sizes M - XXL.
- Rugged: military-grade, impact-resistant American-made buckles
- Features: single kangaroo pocket with Hypalon® easy-to-grip pull-tabs, front & rear Velcro® ID Panels
*Note: These are designed only for 10”x12” trapezoidal plates and will not work with square plates.
