Plate Carrier Sizing
10×12 Plate Carrier
A 10×12 Plate Carrier is easily the most common size plate carrier on the market today. These carriers are built for 10×12 single-curve or 10×12 multi-curve armor plates, which fit a majority of operators.
Each of 0331 Tactical’s outer vest carriers are built for the most common 10×12 armor plates. The Rift Plate Carrier, Tailwind Plate Carrier and Sierra Plate Carrier in the Medium/Large will adequately hold armor plates close to the wearers chest, allowing for optimal mobility.
11×14 Plate Carrier
A 11×14 Plate Carrier is also an essential part of any unit’s crew. For operator’s who are taller, heavier and also wear 11×14 armor plates, you’ll need a larger plate carrier vest to accommodate the size difference.
Each of 0331 Tactical’s outer vest carriers are also built for plates commonly denoted as “Extra Large.” If you are someone who needs 11×14 plates, the Rift, Tailwind and Sierra accommodate that need as well. Simply choose the “XL” version of the plate carrier that meets your tactical and budgetary needs.
Quick Release Plate Carrier
One of the most important aspects of any mission, is an operator’s ability to “up-armor” at a moment’s notice. For that reason, 0331 Tactical has developed its first line of plate carrier setups with the quick release clips. Quick release plate carriers like the Rift, Tailwind and Sierra allow the wearer to quickly doff their carriers. When time is of the essence in a critical mission, you shouldn’t waste time up-armoring.
