The Premier Body Armor Core Plate Carrier comes in a lightweight design.

For law enforcement and security teams, body armor remains a must-have piece of kit. And more private citizens are getting in on it as well. To meet that growing demand, Premier Body Armor launches the Core Plate Carrier with Level IIIA Cummerbund Armor.

Premier Body Armor Core Plate Carrier

The Core Plate Carrier balances durability and high-speed performance, according to Premier Body Armor. The lightweight design accommodates many types of armor. It includes two Level IIIA Cummerbund inserts.

“The new Core Plate Carrier can serve as the foundational chassis for any mission,” said Jason Mammano, Vice President of Marketing and Communications at Premier Body Armor. “The combination of traditional Molle webbing and Velcro Molle panels makes the design endlessly customizable. The Core Plate Carrier is built for those looking for maximum versatility in an American Made plate carrier for the foundation of their tactical kit.”

Balancing durability and high-speed performance, the Core Plate Carrier works with 10×12-inh plates. The design seamlessly integrates traditional Molle webbing and Velcro-covered laser-cut Molle sections. Above all, it makes carrying a heavy kit nearly as natural as going light.

Operators can add a chest placard, easily attaching to the full-field of Velcro on the front of the plate carrier. It handles medical gear, hydration bladders and other essential gear. Both the outside and inside of the cummerbund feature traditional Molle webbing for adding gear on either side.

More and more self-defense practitioners are employing body armor into their kit. With a lightweight design, this one deserves a look. The Core Plate Carrier retails for $399. For even more info, please visit
