Plate Carriers have become the standard for ballistic protection and are used worldwide by military contractors, soldiers, and law enforcement. They come in a range of different shapes and sizes with varying degrees of ballistic protection. However, the constant for all plate carriers is the ability to hold ballistic armor plates. The plate carriers of similar design to the OE TECH Plate Carrier have become a favorite among special forces and military contractors for the ability to provide adequate protection and carry plenty of equipment without compromising maneuverability.
The OE TECH Plate Carrier with Cummerbund has many beneficial features for use in combat and airsoft scenarios. It accepts standardized 10x13 ballistic plates in the front and rear panels that are secured by pull down flaps with heavy duty hook & loop closure. The panels have padded mesh on the inside for comfort and airflow. The shoulder and internal waist straps are adjustable for most sizes (M-XL) and have quick release buckles. In combat quick release buckles give medics quick access to wounds but for airsoft it allows you to just drop your equipment after the game for a deserved break. The cummerbund is adjustable and can carry additional equipment. For added protection the cummerbund has pockets for side armor. Also, for convenience it has a front map pocket, hook & loop panel for ID placard/patches, and a emergency drag strap. Along the cummerbund, the front, and rear panels the OE TECH Plate Carrier is covered in MOLLE webbing.

This product, simply put is outstanding! I still use it after 2 years of use and it has not suffered any damage whatsoever. This PC allows for plenty of MOLLE space and the added inner pouch for a kangaroo pouch or any other means of storage. However, this product can almost have too much space. It almost feels bulky to run around in, however with the right modifications it can be amazing. I would recommend this to any larger players, 5' 7" or taller and over 115 lbs. This is very loose on smaller players and can be very annoying. For me being 5' 4" and 100 lbs, I had to modify it by changing the cummerbund to an elastic one and adding fake SAPI plates to better form to my body. Overall though, it is a great item! Don't pass on the opportunity to purchase this item.
