The Adaptable Lightweight Plate Carrier (ALPC) is a minimalist, modular plate carrier constructed from the highest quality 1000 denier Cordura. Many carriers are made with 500 denier (lighter) Cordura, which in our opinion does not provide sufficient durability for long-lasting use. Both front and rear plate bags split in half and secure around your plate, allowing the front base to be swapped out for any of our front base layouts.
We offer the ALPC to fit the following size plates in SAPI and SHOOTER style cuts (the ALPC will not properly fit Swimmer style plates):
- 9.5" x 12.5" x 1.25"
- 10" x 12" x 1" (for 10x12 plates, thickness is very important, any plate thicker than 1" will not fit)
Weight: We do not recommend having more than 12lbs in or on each plate bag (front/rear)
Note: The ALPC is designed to fit plates following the SAPI sizing convention. Plates that do not follow this convention may not fit properly. Please consult the above dimensions carefully before ordering to ensure your plates will fit our carrier.
The bases of the ALPC are universally sized, so whether you purchased a medium or large, the bases will be the same. The tops are what determine sizing.
The standard front top has a 4"x6" loop velcro panel with vertical PALS webbing on either side which fit QASM buckles (included) for attaching swift clip compatible chest rigs.
For this limited edition we only offer it in the following configuration:
- 3556 base: 3x 5.56x45mm rifle mags
The standard rear bag is a minimalist bag.
The Mag Pockets cummerbund is constructed from 4" elastic and has integrated mag pouch cells (Short size fits 3 per side, Long size fits 5 per side) that fit 5.56x45mm rifle mags and many other items. The cummerbund can be adjusted through the rear bag cummerbund pocket and attaches to the front base using 4" First Spear tubes.
The best way to measure for the cummerbund is just under the pectoral muscles.
The ALPC comes with shoulder pads that provide extra comfort.
