These pads will never scratch your neck and are crucial when wearing a plate carrier for long periods of time. The pads are equipped with buckles that allow the pressure of the weapon straps to be directed away from the neck. "No pull, No Burn". The straps are easily fastened with the Velcro One-Wrap strips (included in the product package). Extra one-wraps are also available as accessories.

The system is extremely easy to reassemble and using it will not damage the structure of the plate carrier in any way. If necessary, the user can also, of course, deactivate the emergency unloading system so that the puller does not unload the vest. Emergency release can be performed with either hand regardless of which side the puller is placed on. Emergency unloading also allows for a gentle and quick way to unload plate carrier from an injured person in an emergency situation.

The evacuation handle is visible, so it does not need to be hunted in an emergency situation. The evacuation handle is flattened and attached to the velcro surface of the back plate.

Sizing with huge adjustment range
The Advanced Plate Carrier is available in two sizes. Regular or Large. Size only affects circumference. When measuring the circumference, take into account the height at which you are using the Plate Carrier and measure the circumference at the chest / abdomen accordingly. Also consider the thickness of the ballistic elements, air circulation panels, or other additional panels you use when measuring the correct size. All the ballistic plates, air flow panels and other panels you place on the plate carrier increase the need for circumference.
Circumference Regular: 90-120 cm | 35”-47”
Circumference Large: 105-135 cm | 41”-53”
Authorities Advanced Plate Carrier cummerbunds are elastic and durable. The patented unique Webforce structure reinforces the elastic parts. Webforce allows 5 cm stretch on both sides, so the total elasticity of the waist is 10 cm. When Webforce is activated and webbing takes burden of elastic parts it will enable true evacuation capability using evacuation handle.
The minimum dimension (min) means that the elastic Webforce elements of the side are slightly activated and the weight is distributed off the shoulders.
The maximum dimension (max) means that the Webforce elements are almost in their extreme position (with some elasticity left).
The outer surface of the cummerbund is covered with a comfortable softshell material. The softshell material protects skin of the inner arms when operating in warm conditions with short-sleeved shirts. The length of the cummerbund can be adjusted under the back part. In addition, there is a separate traditional quick-adjust Velcro surface under the front flap. This allows you to immediately fine-tune the waist circumference by a few centimetres, for example when adding / removing layers of clothing.
