The ARC Placard V3 is our latest version of our ARC Placard series which is our take on bridging the gap between traditional MOLLE magazine pouches and placards. At the inception of the ARC Placard the industry was filled with double stack styled placards that couldn’t be slimmed down so we decided to design a single pocket placard that could be run slick or built up. Each edition we’ve sought to evolve the product and this version is no different.

The ARC Placard V3 is a single pocket placard meant to integrate into the front of Plate Carriers and Chest Rigs that allows users to build out their set ups according to their mission and weapon systems. The V3s key improvement is its expanding main pocket. Most placards on the market can only run three 5.56 magazines or two .308 magazines, but this expanding pocket allows the placard to take up to four 5.56 magazines or three .308 magazines. Having an additional 25 to 30 rounds in your prime real estate is a significant improvement that few placards on the market currently offers. The V3 is available with four Elastic Magazine Inserts: our Quadruple 556, our Triple 556, a Triple 308 and our Quintuple 9mm Insert.

The ARC Placard V3 features MOLLE along the sides and bottom which allow for additional pouches to be attached to real estate that would otherwise be empty on other placards out there. This allows users to attach Pistol Magazine Pouches, Tourniquet Pouches or the sort to the sides and bottom if desired. The placard continues to allow First Spear Tube™ Integration directly to the sides of the placard but now also allows 1" Hardware to be integrated so the placard can connect to Chest Rig Harnesses. The placard also features a hook Velcro® backing and adjustable height & hardware straps on top that will allow it to work with most carriers available on the market currently.

Based on 90 reviews

the best placard base on the market
it’s fully expandable and looks so good too

Great Design

By far one of the simplest and slickest mixes between straight MOLLE and a fully Hook & Loop Placard I’ve been able to find, with a little adjustment & the SC Molle/Velcro Adapter, perfect fit for every kit, interchangeable, and good quality.

10/10 from me. 👍

One of the best placards I've used

I've used a plethora of placards, Haley, Ferro, Spiritus, Esstac, and this is by far the best one. The inserts provide a slim profile while making it easy to reindex mags, the height of the placard can be adjusted, tubes can be attached directly to the sides, and with the RDS inserted to the front of the mag inserts, gives an ultra slim map pouch making it easy to go prone.


Beyond perfect

ARC v3 placard

Bought for my JPC 2.0. Combined it with the triple 5.56 insert and a NERD pouch on the front. I definitely like the low profile and the ability to still add to the front or sides if so desired. I plan to eventually run a tubes cummerbund and connect it directly to the placard for extra security. Overall awesome product.
