A four man Airforce fire team assigned to securing launch sites and flying SUAS ”small unmanned aerial system”to provide force protection, route clearance, and battle damage assessment contacted us about the BCS Plate carrier. They requested the plate carrier in ABU (Airman Battle Uniform). This was the first time we had made any of our gear in the ABU tiger stripe. The ABU plate carrier turned out nice in the tiger stripe pattern.
The ABU Plate Carrier was designed to meet and exceed the needs of the operator. If you are an Airforce Operator or need a high quality ABU Plate carrier that has great load carrying capacity in a compact lightweight design the ABU Plate Carrier is for you.
The shoulders on the plate carrier are fully adjustable and 4”, 6” and 9” shoulder pads are available with an advanced design feature not seen in other rigs. Two pieces of webbing sewn on each end of the shoulder pads allowing for comms or hydration tubing to be ran through. On one of the pads there is a sling securing strap to help prevent neck sling burn.
The front and back of the plate carrier feature rows of molle webbing and two 2” row of Loop sewn on for flags and other identifiers on the front. Rifle plates are loaded from the unique top load design and secured with a hook/loop closure.This eliminates the possibility of the plates ever falling out.
The plate carrier includes a removable cummerbund. The cummerbund runs through the rig, is fully adjustable and has molle webbing on both sides. If the cummerbund if not needed it can also be removed, and the rig can continue to be secured by a secondary 2” nylon strap system with quick release buckles (also removable). The front cummer flap has four rows of molle which allows for some vertical adjustment.
The ABU plate carrier is available by request as well as other BCS gear in ABU.
