The Core Plate Carrier has laced paracord located at the back of the vest to provide comfort and adjustability. When adding plates to the carrier, it will naturally have a more snug fit. If you are between sizes, we recommend sizing up.sizing for the core plate carrier vest, designed to carry rifle-rated body armor plates


Is body armor legal?

Body armor is legal to own in all 50 states (but we can not ship it to the state of Connecticut or New York).

What if I'm between sizes? Or on the border for the next size up?

While the carrier itself fits true to size, inserting plates will cause the carrier to have a tighter fit. Because of this, we recommend sizing up one (1) size if you are between or on the border of two sizes. The laced paracord in the back of the vest can help provide the most comfortable fit.

Where do I insert the cummerbund armor?

If you lift the full-field of velcro on the front, you will find the cummerbund straps. Lift the cummerbund strap from the front of the vest and you will find an entrance point for the level 3a soft armor inserts.

Which internal pocket do I place my rifle-rated plate in?

While there are three internal pockets to the Core Plate Carrier, you will place the rifle rated plate in the middle pocket that has a reinforced velcro strap to ensure your armor plate does not shift. The front pocket can be used for a spall liner if you're operating with ICW plates or Steel Plates. The rear internal pocket gives the option of using a trauma pad.

Can I wash my vest?

The outer carrier is machine washable. Simply remove the ballistic cummerbund panels and any trauma pads or plates, then we recommend washing the carrier on gentle. Lay the carrier flat to dry.
