Great product! Dudes know what the operator needs


한국군에 근무하면서 사용한 보급 플레이트 케리어는 상당히 불편하고 헤비한 세팅이 불가능했지만 ARC V2는 미니멀 세팅에서 헤비한 세팅까지 전부 가능합니다.
가장 마음에 들었던 부분은 플레이트의 크기가 유동적으로 조절이 된다는 점입니다 따라서 한국군에 보급되는 방탄 플레이트와도 잘 호환이 되는게 가장 큰 장점인거 같습니다.
해당 플레이트 케리어를 구매하고 다른 플레이트 케리어를 사용할 필요를 못 느끼고 있습니다.

When I served at ROK army SOF, plate carriers which has issued was totally ****. So, it is impossible that I set my PC for load bearing purpose. However this one makes that possible, and I can also change the setting to minimal for purpose. Additionally, the most great thing is that I can use plates regardless of size of plates once it fits from S to M(or L to XL). It's great great PC

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.
