The OTV carrier is a replacement body armor carrier that converts the three piece front opening IBA Interceptor issue armor system into a two pieces body armor system. The new carrier design allows the individual to convert the issue soft and hard body armor into a more effective and efficient body armor carrier system. The carrier was designed to provide maximum amount of ballistic protection and increase range of motion for the upper body. The front carrier has an internal support pocket to keep both soft inserts correctly over lapped to prevent movement. The carrier allows proper adjustment of front and back hard plates. The OTV carrier is made out of cordura, which is very abrasion resistant. The OTV carrier  also has attachment webbing for issue attachments; yoke assembly, groin protector,throat protector and DAPS.

One of our primary goals during the design of the BALCS LVR (low vis rig) was that it would be scalable and support different manufacture load platforms (chest rigs, elastic cummerbuns..etc). The BALCS LVR was built around the BALCS cut soft body armor and available in BALCS armor standard sizes – S, M, L, XL.

The LVR body armor carrier transforms your BALCS body armor system by providing the best in adjustable elastic waist systems and chest rig load attachment points. The vertical channels allow for the attachment of QASM buckles or other field replaceable buckles. Loop velcro runs across the front of the rig as well on the elastic cumberbund. This rig is designed to work with our TLMP (Tactical Load Mount Platform) and other chest rig like the Haley D3 Chest rig.


The back of the BALCS  LVR has the right amount of molle webbing to support the Camelbak Mil-spec Antidote Short reservoir and our Hydration carrier short. A low profile drag handle is positioned right below the top of the carrier so not to get in the way but be readily accessible.
