The SF Plate Carrier is sized by SAPI plate size to fulfill your unit needs. The most common size will be the Medium size which fits Medium SAPI size plates and 10×12 plates. Integrated padded 3D mesh shoulder pads provide comfort for load carriage. The interior body side is also lined with 3D mesh padding.

    Cameron’s knowledge of just about anything related to guns is impressive. He was very helpful and great to work with.

    Nice rig. Side plate pockets a little tight but once you get them in place they stay put. Shellbacks web site has all the nice accessories for this carrier

  3. Peter (verified owner)

    Have not had to wear it more than a couple hours, so far it’s comfortable

    My RMA plates are 1.2″ thick which are thicker than most plates on the market. I was hard finding a carrier that would fit them. My first carrier couldn’t fit them, but this one did perfectly which I’m happy about. I put 6×6 side plates in the cummerbund and there isn’t a great mechanism to hold them in place to keep them from sliding around within the cummerbund, but with a bit of effort i managed to get them to stay in place. Also if you are on the thinner side and the cummerbund is too roomy in the default configuration, it is possible but not super convenient to make it tighter. You have to redo the cords in the back though the molle to hold the 2 cummerbund pieces closer together which will cause them to overlap.

    Super nice carrier. Only downside is that it’s not very fast to don and doff. Really like the integrated magazine pouches.

  6. Charles (verified owner)

    My model 1189 plates just arrived. The quality and fit of this carrier are excellent.
