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

**Please note that you must select front and back panel options for the complete PC.


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.

CanÕt be happier. Looking forward to testing it in the field but stoked about the look and comfort! Teammates are already looking for their own. Highly recommend this carrier. Minimalistic set up, plenty of options, and fast shipping for SKD as always!

PIG Brigandine Plate Carrier, Front + Molle Rear [ November 3, 2017
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Phoenix, AZ United States  
I recently purchased this plate carrier and at first I was skeptical about the sizing and if the price would hold up to its reputation. So far I LOVE the plate carrier!!! It fits perfectly and I will definitely be buying from them again soon! Excellent service and super fast shipping. This is the website for you!!!!!

The Lego of Plate Carriers October 17, 2017
Reviewer: Chris M from Brighton, MA  
I bought this plate carrier with the intention of buidling on it for a SHTF scenario. SKD Tactical does not disappoint with their SYSTEM system. I would recommend this to anyone seeking a modular vest that they can improve on.

Quality June 13, 2017
Reviewer: Matthew from TN United States  
Well made and seems like it will last. Fits snug and flexs enough to allow breathing during stress fire course exercises.
Low profile and light weight.
Holds plates in correct spot.
Just wish it had an attachment point on front panel near the top for a d-ring to allow for attaching a breaching shotgun sling.
