The Veritas Lite Plate Carrier by AR500 Armor is the slimmed down version of their signature plate Veritas Modular carrier. Some of the features from the Veritas Modular system are removed such the 3D Mesh webbing and second Admin Pocket. The result is a much lighter and less complicated carrier. The Veritas Lite will accept 10″ x 12″ plates of any variation (steel, ceramic, polyethylene). The only 10″ x 12″ plate that it does not fit is the square back plate. For side plate protection, you should purchase a larger carrier such as the Testudo which has pockets built into the cummerbund or purchase the optional cummerbund and side plate pouches for the Veritas. The side buckles and shoulder straps are fully adjustable and removable. The carrier is constructed of 500D Cordura nylon, mil-spec webbing, and removable shoulder pads. Velcro attachment points on the inside pocket wall can be used for the optional Adaptive Plate Inserts found on the AR500 Armor website.
The carrier includes one front Admin Pocket that provides extra storage capacity and utilizes Hypalon easy-to-grip pull tab for reliable access. The pocket can also accept the optional Kangaroo Mag Pouch system. Large soft Velcro areas are located on the upper front and rear portions of the carrier for patches and large ID panels. All high stress points, webbing, and emergency drag handle use reinforced stitching and bar-tacks. The Veritas Modular is available in Black, Coyote, Olive Drab, and Multi-Cam colors and weighs 1.6 lbs without armor.
