The Testudo™ Lite Plate Carrier by AR500 Armor is a slimmed down version to the newest Testudo Gen 2 carrier. With less bulk and weight, the Testudo Lite cuts out on some of the extra features to offer a no-nonsense carrier that can still handle body armor up to 10″ x 12″ or 11″ x 14″ plates of any variation (steel, ceramic, polyethylene). The cummerbund and shoulder straps are fully adjustable and accommodate large or medium body types. The carrier is constructed of 500D Cordura nylon, mil-spec webbing, and removable shoulder pads. Inner plate retention straps on both pockets insure that the body armor plates ride at the right height for optimal vital coverage.
The carrier includes a front Admin Pockets that provides extra storage capacity and utilizes Hypalon easy-to-grip pull tabs for reliable access. The Testudo™ cummerbund is fully adjustable for girth and larger frames. The carrier can also fit side plates integrated into the sides of the cummerbund. The Testudo™ Lite is available in Black, Coyote, Olive Drab, and Multi-Cam colors and weighs 2.5 lbs without armor.
