Defense Mechanisms Mission Essential Plate Carrier

Defense Mechanisms Mission Essential Plate Carrier


The Mission Essential Plate Carrier keeps a minimalist design at its heart while packing in key features that enhance usability.  500D construction gives the carrier strength while keeping weight to a minimum.  Carrier sizing matches plate size, not user size.  Each plate bag will fit up to a 1″ thick combination of plate and backer. For plates thicker than 1″ thick, simply size up to the larger plate bag.
