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!

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

Great Carrier April 27, 2017
Reviewer: Travis Donaldson from Aliso Viejo, CA United States  
I ordered this plate carrier to be worn over agency issued soft armor.  It works fantastic for that, the tube system is insanely easy and I don't sound like a Velcro monster coming destroy your city when I am putting all my gear on.   As the description says on the website, the plate carrier was developed during a sweaty backseat tryst between SKD and First Spear.  Usually that leads to bad things (like my cousin Rick), but in this case, drunken prom night sex in a 1996 Honda Accord (I'm guessing) worked out great.  The only reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5, is that the carrier has no Velcro / hook loop fastening system on it.  Which meant I had to order panels, which means I had to go to a different supplier besides SKD, and I had to speak to someone on the phone.  I Hate talking on the phone.  Besides that, its a sexy piece of equipment that is easy to put on and off in a hurry, and just seeing me wear it the first time got my wife pregnant.

Great Minimalist Carrier January 19, 2017
Reviewer: N. Franklin from Springfield, MO United States  
Fit/finish were on par with other First Spear products I have used (excellent), the carrier accepted medium ESAPI plates and inserts without issue.  The only change I would like to see is a provision for 6x6 side plates.  Im 5'11 and 185 lbs, the M/L cummerbund needed minor adjustment for fit and comfort.  The cummerbund is both adjusted by and held in place by hook and loop (velcro), Once you have it in place it is not going to move or loosen over time.  Easy on and off, this is my recommendation for a slick or light loadout carrier.

STT Plate Carrier January 14, 2017
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Miami, FL United States  
I have purchased and used a ton of different armor and plate carrier. Love, love, love this. The tubes allow for a quick release. The plate carrier is light. The options for add-ons on the Firstspear website is endless. Should've bought this sooner instead of the other brands. Go a little bigger on the cumberbund if you're in between sizes.

So far so good January 9, 2017
Reviewer: Ryan Ellis from Parkton, MD United States  
Light. Smooth. Easy don/doff. In prone i tend to pick up hitchhikers. Seems more brittle than standard molle. Overall pleased so far. When it fails I'll change my opinion. Or keep it.
