AR500 Armor® XL Plate Carrier - (Carrier made of NON-Ballistic materials)
The AR500 Armor® XL Plate Carrier is our largest plate carrier, designed for operators who are searching for an Extra Large complete body armor solution. The XL Plate Carrier is able to accommodate our Extra Large 11" x 14" Level III Advanced Shooters Cut plates, in addition to SPEAR and BALCS soft armor IIIA panels. The AR500 Armor® XL Plate Carrier offers the operator increased coverage by utilizing our larger 11" X 14" body armor, while providing more real-estate by way of MOLLE for additional gear and pouches.
The plate pocket is built-in, internally, and includes an adjustable retention strap allowing the operator to position the plate within the pocket. The SPEAR/BALCS sleeve includes a removable padded insert which can be used in place of IIIA panels for additional comfort with hard armor installed. The XL Plate Carrier also accepts our 10” x 12” ASC body armor plates.
The shoulder straps are fully adjustable for ride height and include removable padded shoulder straps with built-in hydration tube guides. The cummerbund is removable, fully adjustable for girth and features side plate pouches for soft armor inserts in 6” x 6” or 6” x 8” (It will not accept hard armor side panels without additional side plate pouches). The XL Plate Carrier is lined with padded mesh designed to improve air flow and comfort and features quick pull tabs on the front cummerbund flap.
