The Veritas Modular Plate Carrier by AR500 Armor is one of their signature plate carriers. Described as a cost effective modular system, the Veritas features a minimalistic profile that is smaller, but more modular, than the Testudo Gen 2 carrier. The Veritas Modular 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 would also want to go with 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, removable shoulder pads, and 3D Mesh technology that lines the inner plate pockets for increased ventilation. 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 two front Admin Pockets that provide extra storage capacity and utilizes Hypalon easy-to-grip pull tabs for reliable access. The lower Admin Pocket can also accept the optional Kangaroo Mag Pouch system. The upper Admin Pocket has elastic dividers for gear retention. 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, rear backpack mounts, 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 3.5 lbs without armor.
