Your job may require you to put your life on the line in defense of another, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t do everything you can to protect yourself as well. Of course, some jobs require discretion, and wearing an oversized plate carrier is a no-go. For this reason, Premier Body Armor releases its Discreet Plate Carrier for the professional who requires tact.
Premier Body Armor Discreet Plate Carrier
Extremely lightweight, thin, and feature-rich, the Discreet Plate Carrier is designed with executive protection in mind. However, providing rifle-rated protection, it will accommodate all 10×12 plates, including SAPI/ESAPI, Shooter, and Swimmer’s cuts. This includes Level III or Level IV plates from companies like AR500 or Spartan Armor. However, the plates must be thinner than 1 inch for an optimal fit.
Virtually invisible under a button-down shirt or jacket, the Discreet Plate Carrier is completely concealable. Additionally, the fully adjustable cummerbund includes pouches for full-size PMAGs, comms, medical equipment, etc.
However, if things go sideways and operational requirements change, the front plate pocket features a full-field loop Velcro cover and a single vertical load-bearing MOLLE strip on each side. As a result, you can quickly attach G-Hook-based pouches, like Premier Body Armor’s MAAP pouch. Likewise, the rear plate pocket also includes a full-field loop cover for additional gear.
Designed for comfort as well as function, the plate carrier features an inner mesh liner for breathability. In addition, diagonally articulating shoulder straps help bear the load comfortably for extended wear. Finally, the elastic cummerbund is fully adjustable and comes in a one-size-fits-most size.
“Designing a plate carrier that is discreet enough to conceal rifle rated plates, yet robust enough to last, is no easy feat”, said Alex Stewart, President of Premier Body Armor. “But, after several months of R&D, I think we have a carrier that makes the cut and comes packed with capability.”
The Premier Body Armor Discreet Plate Carrier is available now with MSRPs of $180.00. For more info, please visit PremierBodyArmor.com.
