2nd ARC V2 Carrier

I'm on my second ARC V2 carrier (Ranger Green, and, Multi-Cam). Love the product quality, and, modularity! Using for Law-Enforcement use. Looking forward to accessory upgrades on soft-armor. Very highly recommended if you want a top-tier Plate Carrier! Nothing else compares on the high-end IMHO!

Expensive but Great

The plate bags are feature rich and well constructed. Cable management is a breeze and it is very comfortable under weight. It integrates with just about any cummerbund on the market, which is super nice. While expensive, you are certainly getting a solid carrier.

Only issues I noticed were that adjustments in the shoulder straps were limited when going smaller and strap hardware is not included. It appears to be designed for a very large person even on the S/M size. I am not a super small person at 5’7” 165 and I maxed out the adjustment, so if you are a particularly small person you won’t be able to adjust the straps enough to get the plates to ride at the correct height. This issue also carriers over to their PCP. The straps only come with the hardware installed. Would have been nice to have the slick hardware included instead of paying $5 + shipping to swap out the shoulder tube.


Most comfortable plate carrier I own.

Arc carrier

Very comfortable I wear it all day and it’s incredibly comfortable and the materials look and feel amazing. Very durable as well and the spider system just makes it so versatile that you there is no other reason to buy any other carrier. This is my third carrier and by far the best.
