A Truly Concealable Plate Carrier 

In 2014 Premier Body introduced the Discreet Executive Vest and redefined what a bulletproof vest could be. We allowed form to follow function. Fast forward to today. The world is changing and the need for ballistic protection increasing. Introducing the Discreet Plate Carrier. When outfitted with two of our ultra-light STRATIS plates, the Discreet Plate Carrier provides concealable protection from rifle threats. While virtually invisible when worn under a button-down shirt or jacket, the DPC is anything but "minimalistic."

Six pouches are sewn into the cummerbund and designed around full-size magazines, but also accommodate comms devices and medical equipment. The DPC can be adapted to fit any mission with the addition of its own line of accessories.

Will the Discreet Plate Carrier fit my armor plates if they're not from Premier Body Armor?

No matter if your plates are from companies such as AR500, or Spartan Armor, the Discreet Plate Carrier can hold Level III or Level IV body armor plates at or smaller than 10"x12". The plates must be thinner than 1" for an optimal fit.

Can the Discreet Plate Carrier fit any cut of armor plates?

The Discreet plate Carrier can fit SAPI/ESAPI or Shooter's Cut or Swimmer's Cut armor plates.

What should I place in the cummerbund of my Discreet Plate Carrier and will it be concealed as well?

The durable, elastic cummerbund is designed around AR-Magazines, but can hold all types of equipment for your mission. You can place magazines, medical gear, or communication radios. The equipment is concealed under your shoulder and arm mass, but easily accessible for rapid response.

Can I wash my carrier?

The outer carrier is machine washable. Simply remove any armor, then we recommend washing the carrier on gentle. Lay the carrier flat to dry.

Light and slim

It is so lightweight and doesn’t restrict my movement.

Excellent fulfillment!

First purchase from Premier...everything went smoothly and as advertised. Plate carrier is fabulous--super-slim and easy to adjust. Great work!

Impressed so far

I haven't been to the range with the Discreet Plate Carrier yet. I've worn it around the house with III+ plates and I'm happy with the fit and how well it goes on and comes off. I've wondered if it has enough Velcro on the shoulder straps. It hasn't come loose but it's heavy with 17 lbs of steel. Clearly, no problems but it occured to me when I adjusted it. I like the simple design, all the velcro, and I like the one-size-fits-most sizing. I'm sure I could put this on a larger or smaller family member or friend with no fuss. I'm looking forward to trying it loaded up at the range as well as learning how well it'll work in public concealed. I might modify the cummerbund to take smaller magazines. Undecided.

Outstanding Product

This Discrete Plate Carrier is Outstanding and is perfect for discrete wear. The quality of form and function is superb. It easily fits under a jacket. The perfect layer for higher level IV protection. You should plan on stand alone plates in this plate carrier. I highly recommend this plate carrier for any discrete higher risk environment.

I recommend that the plate pockets be enlarged to accommodate larger than medium size SAPI plates.

Amazing Quality!! :)

Love this plate carrier. Very easy to conceal armor during critical situations that require a discreet form of body armor. Would give 6 stars if there were 6 lol! :)
