FirstSpear STT Plate Carrier, SKD Exclusive

Combine the technological advances of First Spear and the marketing gonads of SKD in a dirty, backseat tryst, and the only thing that could gestate is a ground-breakingly evil product like the First Spear STT (Six-Twelve-Tubes) Plate Carrier.

The First Spear STT PC was created in conjunction with and exclusively for SKD, and offers 6/12(TM) and Tubes (TM) technology in a sub $200 Plate Carrier for the first time. What the market has been missing for years (since the likes of the Eagle Plate Carrier with Cummerbund) has been a full-featured plate carrier from a top tier brand in the sub-$200 category. With the First Spear STT Plate Carrier, you not only get all the traditional features in an all-molle front, back and cummerbund, but you get the bleeding-edge technologies of 6/12 (TM) and Tubes (TM) for a lightweight Molle interface, sex-pot good looks, and the fastest don and doff in the industry- all in a package that weighs a scant 1.6 lbs.

The plate pockets are sized to handle most shooters cut 10" x 12" commercial armor plates, as well as Medium ESAPI/Ceradyne plates (L or XL ESAPI will NOT fit). The bottom flap pushes the plate to the top of the pocket to keep your armor in its proper place over your upper thoracic region. Exclusive to this SKD-spec STT Plate Carrier is the integration of loop velcro strips on the front and back carriers for option of adding PIG AFC Pontoons for increased air flow and padded goodness.

We are offering 3 different cummerbund sizes to maximize fit. Measure your chest around the widest part (usually at nipple height) and it should correspond with your jacket size if you know it. Compare that measurement with the sizes below to select your cummerbund.

S/M: 38"-44" (can hold 6" x 9" soft armor )
L/M: 42"-48" (can hold 6" x 9" soft armor)
L/XL: 48"-52" (can hold soft armor up to 6" x 12" wide)

If you are in between 2 sizes we recommend trying the smaller of the two sizes first. These sizing suggestions are general guidelines. There are multiple variables in play that make fitting armor an imperfect process at best but this will put most people into the size they need to be.

The M/L and L/XL cummerbunds have elastic for up to 2" of additional stretch. The thickness of your plates and whether you are running any soft armor will also affect the sizing and fit. Adding PIG AFC Pontoons will reduce the size and fit considerably.

As you can probably tell, we're pumped up to offer the STT Plate Carrier exclusively and hope you feel the same way! The STT PC is offered in Ranger Green, Black, Coyote and Multicam. As with all First Spear tactical nylon gear, the STT PC is proudly Made in USA!

Great Carrier, even for big dudes! October 12, 2017
Reviewer: Dakota Hance  
I was in the market for a new plate carrier, I had an Eagle Ciras but found it was too cumbersome. At the recommendation of a friend, I took a look at this STT and decided to pull the trigger. I was apprehensive about the fit, I am 6'2" and wear a XL-XXL so I was concerned that I would be getting pinched 24/7. I was so wrong! This is the most comfortable setup I have ever owned, I paired it with some PIG Pontoons and it is awesome. Definitely give this carrier a shot, you won't regret it!

Couldn't be Happier, Best $200 I've Spent October 5, 2017
Reviewer: Whiskey Actual from Kabul, Afg  
I'm a private security contractor in AFG and ordered the STT while on leave. Shipping and customer service were excellent. For the first week or so of wearing this PC I got compliments and questions everyday about my kit. I'm using ESAPI plates (just front and back) along with 3 G Code Scorpion Soft shell mag pouches with the rest of my ammo on my Operator belt. I'm as comfortable as I've ever been for 8hrs a day wearing this kit, and that's WITHOUT the optional pontoons and shoulder pads available. I've seen many of the popular PCs around but this is by far the best on the market IMO for the money. The quality is up to the par to the point where I would not have blinked if I had to pay $100 dollars more for it. This is my favorite PC in the industry. I'm considering getting a second one in multicam.

Light, Cool (temp), Well Designed and comfortable September 11, 2017
Reviewer: Dave D from San Mateo, CA United States  
I bought this plate carrier to replace one from Blackhawk. the FirstSpear is much lighter and with the addition of Pontoons is much cooler too. It is very easy to put on and take off. I don't sound like the attack of the velcro monster either. The "tubes" work well and are plenty strong to secure heavy molle gear.     I added side plate pockets to the cummerbund after one of our guys' side plate stopped some IED shrapnel. Overall an excellent product.

Highly Recommend May 22, 2017
Reviewer: Patrick Vossmer from MA United States  
Great product at a great price, if you're unsure about cummerbund size get a size up from what you think it's easier to make the cummerbund smaller than larger because you'll run out of material if you make it too large then have to make an exchange (return) to get the right size. But I am very pleased with this carrier and can't wait to start running it
