The LVR was designed for low vis operations. From the very beginning we have been designing low vis rigs for NIJ, OTV, IOTV and BALCS cut body armor. On the back of the BALCS LVR we incorporated a low profile, reinforced drag handle and a few rows of molle webbing for the attachment of pouches. 4” of loop velcro go around the entire carrier for maximum elastic side adjustment for user comfort and fit.

The carrier supports front and back hard plates – SAPI, ESAPI, SWIMMER CUT. The plate pockets supports the plate with 2-2” mil spec webbing and has plenty of adjustment. Many body armor carrier only use one webbing strap. We feel securing and supporting the hard plate in place correctly requires two webbing straps.
