The Tailwind Plate Carrier by 0331 Tactical is designed with speed and flexibility in mind. Designed for rapid expansion and up-armoring, the Tailwind is a lightweight plate carrier ready for any mission.
Tailwind’s cummerbund has been stripped to its essence while not foregoing helpful components. Mesh substrate allows an additional layer to wick moisture from the body, increase airflow, and also provides abrasion protection from your operating environment. A traditional shock cord rear combination system allows familiar flexibility to experienced users and simplicity to newcomers. Meanwhile, the front attachment utilizes rapid release buckles for a secure fit without compromising the wearer in a medical emergency. Plus, both interior and exterior faces of the cummerbund are capable of holding side plate, magazine, and utility pouches, no matter how you want to mount them.
Utilizing 0331 Tactical’s Hybrid Expansion system, the Tailwind Plate Carrier offers you the ability to add ID placards, chest rig/placard systems, and normal MOLLE pouches across the entirety of the front and rear plate bag exterior faces.
Your Tailwind’s shoulder straps are built using laminate nylon and designed to lay flat against your body by attaching through the rear seam of the plate bag. Thanks to their incredibly lightweight and thin yet strong architecture, shouldering your rifle is easy. Plus, they provide color-matched tactical or camouflage patterning.
Swappable shoulder pads means you can upfit your Tailwind Plate Carrier for heavier or lighter loads, no matter your mission.
Protected stretch fabric on the plate bag wear face allows armor plates that don’t need expansion to stay taut, while a simple slit in the protective layer on the inside of the plate bag will release its expansionary capability. If you’re looking for a lightweight plate carrier, this is it.
