The HSS Releasable Plate Carrier is a great releasable armor system with a lot of molle real estate for a full load. Plate Carriers have become the standard for military personnel when it comes to ballistic protection and load bearing. The HSS Releasable Plate Carrier accepts standard 10x12 plates in the front and rear compartments. The advantage of a MOLLE plate carrier is it allows its user to configure the vest to their needs and the needs of the mission with a wide range of different pouches. In addition on each side of the carrier there and internal hydration compartment for a hydration bladder. The release handle is located on the front at the bottom of the front panel. Also, on the rear of the carrier is an emergency drag handle for pulling the user to safety.
Model: Releasable Plate Carrier
I recently gotthis in the mail, and since I live On the East side of Canada, I got it fairly quick (As long as you dont take into consideration that paypal is horrible and takes forever.) One thing though not product wise, but a fault on Airsoft G.I., I asked for it to have to be signed for, so it didnt jsut sit on my porch for the whole world to steal, but I come out side one day, and see a box just sitting there. Im kind of disapointed that they would leave it on my porch, since I droped a good 100 Canadian dollars on this, but none the less, the product is great, and I cant wait o use it in game.
Nice snug fit, still some room left, and Im quite a big guy, mind you.
Modular, so you can add puches and things to it, make it your own.
I know this is petty, but I'm still somewhat of a new player. I dont know alot about the gear, so when I get something in the mail, put it on, I want to know how to use it, and not see the little pull tap at the bottom, and think "hmmm, what does this do" and then have all the cables come flying out my vest, leaving me to spend the rest of the day how to get the cables back in and working condition.

I received this plate carrier today. It came ready to use right out of the box, just need to attach your pouches to your liking.I didn't need to adjust mine much for size. Material is great and it is lighter than my other vest. My only problems with it are the placement of the wires for the releasable part of the carrier( they jab into the armpits ) and the quick release handle in front which makes the front bottom of the carrier( the width of the handle) extra bulky. Other than what I mentioned, I really love this plate carrier .
Plenty of Molle space
Not heavy/cumbersome-allows great movement
Stitching is good
Built in Hydro carrier
Will fit a wide range of body types
Placement of the release wires could be improved- I added a small bit of electrical tape to the end of the armpit wires to take out the sharpness.
Front release handle is a bit awkward and bulky feeling(bulges a bit)- mine is a bit 'bulgier' feeling than normal as I tucked the handle into the vest so as not to accidently get it caught on something and have it release accidently.
