by Joe

If you’re seeing a lot of close-fit carriers with minimalist design these days, say hello to ground-zero: The PIG BRIG. Due to it’s light weight and compact size, the BRIG has become my go to carrier that doesn’t limit me due to its scalability. Fully optioned it still weighs less than a lot of other “full-featured” plate carriers without giving up modular real estate. As long as you have one of the plates we offer the BRIG for, you can enjoy the custom fit and benefit from the minimal design.

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.

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 SKD Armor 10" x 12" Stand Alone Plate , ESAPI (4 sizes), the 10" x 12" Tap Gamma and the Velocity Systems 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.

5 of 5 Killer PC that will stand the test of time. March 19, 2020
Reviewer: JC from Islands and peninsulas  
I’ve been running the BRIG for over 6 years in very warm weather climates for all day ops and training as well quick don and doff ops. I added the three mag chest rig, which I use to carry a radio, tourny, and rifle mag, and some shoulder pads.  This thing has been used and abused and has held up to everything I’ve thrown at it. It fits me well, it’s simple and minimal, the ride height is perfect, and it moves with you, thanks to the elastic cummerbunds. I’ve used similar PCs and I always go back to the BRIG. It’s not often that I find a piece of gear that just works so damn well for what I do.

5 of 5 Great quality for the price February 16, 2020
Reviewer: Kevin from Falls Church, VA  
Never had a plate carrier fit so good for under $100! Anyone looking for a slickster but on a budget, this is it. I dare say it can compete against the more expensive brands. The medium SAPI was able to accommodate L210 shooter's cut without too much dogear slack.

This product is just what we hoped for. Great quality and looks good. The mag holder fits perfectly.  Shipping was fast and everything was in perfect condition. I will definitely buy from this company again.
