AR500 Armor has put together an affordable solution for customers wanting front and back Level III Rifle Threat protection. With so many options in carriers and rifle plates, the decision on what to buy can be somewhat confusing. AR500 Armor has simplified the process and offers a substantial discount by combining everything you need in one package. The Urban Go Plate Carrier Package includes: (1) Urban Go Plate carrier, (1) AR500 Armor Level III 10″ x 12″ ASC Curved Base Coat Plate, (1) 10″ x 12″ ASC Flat Base Coat Plate, and matching AR500 Armor Patch (while supplies last). Generally, AR500 Armor is able to ship the Carrier Packages within a few business days.
The Urban Carrier is fully adjustable from Medium to XXL sizes (up to a 54″ chest). The carrier is constructed of durable 500D nylon and includes quick release shoulder and side buckles to quickly deploy and take off the armor platform. The front and back panels are padded with a molded “valley” airway for improved air flow. Because the Urban Carrier is a cummerbund-less design, it’s not intended for use with side body armor plates. The minimalist construction of the carrier reduces its weight to 1.5 lb without the armor. The Urban Carrier comes standard with an Emergency Drag Handle and front and rear Velcro panels for ID’s and patches.
AR500 Armor Level III ASC Body Armor is effective at stopping stand-alone and multi-hit rifle threats up to 7.62×51 M80 Ball (.308 Winchester) at velocities up to 2,780 feet per second and all lesser rifle, pistol, and shotgun threats. The front 10″ x 12″ plate utilizes AR500’s Advanced Shooters Cut (ASC) which is a tapered design that gives greater mobility for the user to perform firearms tactics. The front plate is also curved, using an ergonomic design that hugs the body for a slimmer profile. The back 10″ x 12″ plate is the standard flat plate with an ASC taper.
Before your final purchase, you’ll also want to decide if you’d like to add a trauma pad for your plate. Trauma pads are constructed of a non-Newtonian material and are designed for the sole purpose of reducing the amount of blunt force energy felt by the armor user. They offer no additional ballistic protection and add about 5.9 oz and .25″ in thickness to your plate carrier.
