DEFENDER PLATE CARRIER
- Product Review (submitted on July 5, 2019):
- This is a good starter vest for someone looking for a more heavy infantry loadout (lots of gear or ammo/ supplies) for airsoft or actual military service. I bought this vest for airsoft, and it works. I covers most of your torso and makes you feel real safe. I did have to tighten the vest up to its smallest and it was a bit loose until I put my dyneema or Kevlar vest in (I don't know what the actual material is) as well as my plates. Now when I was tightening the vest I saw some pockets on the sides for what I can only assume are side plates, but I don't have side plates. This vest can hold a lot with the MOLLE webbing, I am running about close to 50 pounds of gear with all my plates and equipment (and I'm doing airsoft). One of my friends who did a few tours of Afghanistan was running the same vest at over 60 pounds and we now do airsoft together and both the vests are holding up to lots and lots of torture. In conclusion this is a great vest if you are Hauling lots of gear into combat and what good protection, simulated or real.
