Blue Force Gear PLATEminus 2

PLATEminus V2 or simply "PLATE 2" is a result of direct feedback from both our extensive beta testing and customers of the PLATEminus. Not only is PLATE 2 the second in the PLATEminus line but is the solution for the two most requested features – side plate pockets and a cummerbund.

PLATE 2 is the built with the same fully MOLLE compatible MOLLEminus platform as the original PLATEminus. This provides fully modular load carriage capability but significantly reduces weight and bulk over traditional armor carriers. PLATE 2 is built around the SAPI / ESAPI armored plates, and like PLATE 1, have fully enclosed plate pockets which protect the plates and provide maximum signature management by eliminating black plates or the need for additional “socks”.

The Side plates are also fully enclosed with a unique and effective double fold. The front of the side plate pockets are also MOLLE compatible to mount magazine pouches, trauma kits, or utility pouches.

The cummerbund is fully adjustable and features military grade Ten-Speed elastic. The multi-use cummerbunds can double as a magazine pouches or hold similar sized items such as trauma dressings. The overall length is adjustable by the back panel and also the side plate pockets. PLATE 2 ships with a standard 2 cell cummerbund which will work for most sizes (chest size 38” – 45”) but is compatible with the LMAC Side Closures for smaller or larger sizes.

5 of 5 Light and fast January 10, 2017
Reviewer: JASON T. from CA United States  
I bought this to update an Eagle PC I was wearing as a SWAT team member. Plate fitment is awesome, both front/rear and side plates, do not not shift or move during movement. No extra molle to get caught on things, which also makes it lighter than any other vest I've used. Only two complaints: 1: I wish there was a quick donning/offing system similar to First Spear and 2. Wish there was a drag handle.

5 of 5 Low profile and solid October 26, 2015
Reviewer: David P from Olathe, KS United States  
I purchased this as a low profile carrier to be used in firearms classes and should the need arise when sh*t is hitting the fan.  I wanted something well made and dependable, but still low profile to allow a certain amount of conceal-ability, while allowing the attachment of pouches as needed.  This fit the bill perfectly.  My Large ESAPI plates fit perfectly.  The carrier fits snuggly with nice amount of give on the elastic cummerbund.  I would caution that the side pockets ONLY fit 6x6 plates.  The pockets are sewn to that size, and do not have any way to adjust.
