PIG Brigandine Plate Carrier, Front + Slick Rear [SYSTEMA]

NOTE ON SYSTEMA: All PIG items with "[SYSTEMA]" in the product title are related to the PIG Brig Plate Carrier and PIG Brig Chest Rig product family. Please refer to the product descriptions for how each respective SYSTEMA product relates to the product family.

"Brigandine" is the word for medieval armor consisting of armor plates attached to a cloth shirt. The PIG Brigandine is today's version of just that- a low profile way to carry just your plates directly over your shirt or soft body armor. The "BRIG" is the first low-profile plate carrier we are offering for under $100.

Pig Brig Plate Carrier Features:

  • Unlike some of other low profile plate carriers, the PIG BRIG is designed with the straps attaching at a lower point than the top of the plate (like the PIG PC), allowing for a higher plate placement than it's competitors.
  • The integral elastic straps allow for maximum comfort and expansion during heavy activity, and allows for the use of PIG Elastic Cummerbund Sleeves for additional Molle Load Carriage or Side Plate options.
  • The front and back plate assemblies on the PIG BRIG are ordered separately, allowing you to mix and match different size front and back plates.

***Note: The Brig is designed for specific plates to achieve a shoehorn fit. We receive daily inquiries about Brig compatibility with numerous different plate brands and models. We ask that you contact the manufacturer of the plate you own to find out if their plate is the exact size and shape of one of the plates the Brig was designed for. In short, we do not know if your plate will fit the Brig, we only know that the BRIG will fit the plate it was designed for. Currently the BRIG is available for ESAPI (4 sizes), the 10" x 12" Tap Gamma and the Velocity Systems/LTC ICW 10" x 12" Plate. Other plate shapes will be offered in the future.

The Rear is available both SLICK and MOLLE. Browse the [SYSTEMA] category to see the various components you can add to this product family!

As with all PIG tactical nylon products, the Brig is Made in the USA.

Awesome! April 3, 2015
Reviewer: Michael Hawkins from University Place , WA United States  
This thing is awesome. My soft armor fits perfectly in it and works great as an slick armor carrier under a jacket with the soft armor add the pontoons, shoulder pads, your choice of mag carrier options and plates and this thing is a super inexpensive high quality option of you don't need Molle everywhere. Make sure you get the right size for your plates though or it won't fit perfectly!

Nice carrier! January 12, 2015
Reviewer: Geo Bracero from Cape Coral, FL United States  
Solid construction and pretty comfortable but the shoulder pads and pontoons I'm sure can add to that. Customer service is excellent and very fast delivery. You guys won a customer for life. Thanks again!

Let me tell you an embarrassing story. September 28, 2014
Reviewer: Hesperus from Reno , NV United States  
About a year ago, I was flush with cash and bought plates and carrier from an outfit at a gun show called on target armor. Flash forward to a few months later and this piece of crud, Chinese made. Rothko plate carrier has disintegrated on me. The seller and company were utterly worthless. So all this lay in the back of my closet for awhile until I decided to get a new carrier.

The slick brig looked like the best bang for the buck so I bought it. The OTAP plates fit in the velocity 10x12 pockets. Though awkwardly. I will probably have them filed down a little to fit better.

So far I am very happy with the carrier. Although I will probably be getting a set of shoulder pads and pontoons in the future. I am looking forward to acquiring the systema mag carrier as well.

Brigandine Slick Review June 2, 2014
Reviewer: JJ Krash Kerwin from Oklahoma City, OK United States  
Upon receiving this Platecarrier I was thrilled at how easy it was to get everything adjusted.  For training purposes I run 5.5 Pound Dummy Plates, and after 20 miles of running, I have had zero issues.

It was super easy getting everything adjusted and secured.  We had an 8 hour exercise in North East Oklahoma and between the hiking, climbing, and trail blazing through thick and rocky Okie back country.  At the end of the day I was happy to see the hook material free of debris and the stitching holding nicely.

I run a HSP D3 chest rig and Camelbak 3L Thermo over this.  I give this rig full marks, will be willing to update my review later on after more usage.

Only Con: YOU MUST get the PIG Shoulder pads. Trust me on this.

PC w/ Plates: 11lbs
D3 loaded down with 6 rifle mags, 2 S&W M&P9 mags, radio, and tools: 18lbs
Camelbak: Varied dependent on water level.

Get the shoulder pads
