Fits 10" x 12" Shooter Cut Plates and SKD ARMOR 10"x12" Soft Armor Plate Backer.

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 )
M/L: 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!

4 of 5 Light af April 21, 2020
Reviewer: Evan Graham from Fort Worth, TX United States  
When i first got it, i was pleasantly surprised that the carrier was noticeably lighter than my Banshee, i thought it would be only marginal, but it's actually noticeable
The carrier is great, but oddly a little less comfortable than my Banshee, don't know why
But it gives me hopes in seeing other First Spear carriers sold here, like Strandhöggs, AACs, and the Siege-R

4 of 5 Great product, 2 things I don't like September 26, 2019
Reviewer: Mike G from Kentucky  
The 6-12 system is remarkably light, it's just slightly too flexible, at least with the light malice clips. The front mag pouch set (3 m4 mags, 2 m9 and an admin map pouch) sag slightly farther than id like, about a 15 degree outward sag. Second, and this is very minor, on the cumberbund, the innermost slots towards the wearer's spine are almost unusable unless the cumberbund is set to its widest amount, if the pontoons are added it may create a snug fit but as is its a bit loose for my liking.

5 of 5 Perfect Product August 2, 2019
Reviewer: Tom in Ohio from Ohio  
I did a lot of research (about three days) looking into plate carriers.  All of the really good ones don't accept the affordable 10x12 stuff, and even if they do, they don't position it high and right. This carrier gets everything right, the plate fold lets the armor be positioned at the top just like it should be. My 10x12 (like most) is a little small, the carrier still looks extremely good and the way you want it to look. Rear side might fit a slightly larger plate. but still is perfect fitting. The very first time you use those tubes you know that there is no going back to anything else, I was seriously considering a JPC, but these tubes blow that away. My plates are almost an inch thick and they feel perfect and light in this.  I got the Ranger Green, and it is a dark ranger green and matches my OD stuff, which I am ok with because multicam will eventually get replaced with something new.

5 of 5 Amazing Product! June 23, 2019
Reviewer: Malik from Bossier City, LA United States  
The STT Plate Carrier is one heck of a piece of gear. It is EXTREMELY lightweight. Picked up the box it was shipped in and thought the box was empty. The build quality is superb, as is expected when dealing with First Spear products. The Tubes feature is very welcome addition and when they said speedy donning of armor, they mean it. I'm 5'9, 180Lb with a broad, athletic build and the fit of this carrier is very nice indeed.

My only gripe is that I was offered "Killer deals, and Hot breakfast." Got one hell of a deal... But still no hot breakfast.
