Comments Off on BCS NIJ carrier – Still in use today

We were doing some house cleaning today and came across a few pics of our very first NIJ body armor carriers. The design was inspired by the rugged, steep and high altitude mountains of Afghanistan. These carriers were built to take the lighter LE cut NIJ style armor and put it in a light weight cordura carrier that could support front and back 10×12 hard plates with increased abrasion resistance.

These carriers are still in use today and were the most advanced carrier on the market at the time. The heavy duty side elastic concept allows the user the flexibility and manoeuvrability while wearing hard plates.

Here is an early pic of the BCS OTV carrier still a favorite for guys looking to convert the three piece IBA Interceptor armor into a two piece low profile design:

Comments Off on BCS Plate Carrier with Cumber – SWAT TEAM

The BCS plate carrier with cumber was a no-brainer for this SWAT team.  As many SWAT teams make the transition to hard plate level protection and move away from the older, larger  and bulky style vest our Ranger Green plate carrier fit the bill.

The plate carrier has  plenty of molle  to mount molle compatible pouches. The carrier also includes plenty of hydration/commo routing webbing. Two loops, two diagonal and two shoulder pads with routing webbing to keep things from getting caught. Name tape, ID or blood type can be added to the row of 2" velcro.

The rear of the plate carrier also includes routing webbing loops to keep everything tight. The drag handle is reinforced under two rows of molle. The cumber has three rows of molle on the outside and inside. The inside molle rows support proper side plate placement or additional mag pouches. Velcro allows access to insert soft armor or cumber support material into each side of the cumber. The cumber is fully adjustable and is routed through a flap on the rear that is covered in molle.

We encouraged our designers to build the lightest, simplest and most effective plate carrier on the market. They did a great job!!!!

The plate carrier is available in 500D or 1000D cordura and available in Multicam, A-TACS, Ranger Green, Coyote, Khaki, OD and Black.

SWAT teams, if you are  looking to get out of your older style SWAT vest and into something that can support higher level of protection and increase  manoeuvrability give us a call. If you need something custom let us know and we will see what we can do.

Stay safe boys!!

Shotgun Scabbard – Running with the BEARS

We had a unique request from a long-distance runner that spends a lot of time alone in the Alaskin woods in the heart of bear country.  He needed a way to defend himself just in case he ran into a bear.  With an average run being over 12 miles muscle fatigue, heavy breathing and elevated heart rate makes shooting difficult. Weapon of choice was a shotgun but how would he carry it. The BCS Shotgun scabbard fit the bill. The four point harness system would hold the shotgun secure to the body over the long runs and allow the shotgun to be drawn quickly if needed.
